The Southeastern Conference had the most players chosen in the 2015 NFL Draft for the ninth consecutive year.

SEC continues reign as top conference drafted

|

The Southeastern Conference is widely recognized as college football’s top conference and the three-day NFL Draft accurately reflected this statement having 54 total players selected during the event.

The 2015 NFL Draft was the ninth consecutive year of which the SEC came out on top and was again an impressive feat.

You really can’t put into words how accomplished the SEC is when it comes to producing NFL talent and fans shouldn’t expect the league to slow down anytime soon.

Despite having the highest total as a conference, two Atlantic Coast Conference schools- the Florida State Seminoles and Louisville Cardinals- finished 1-2 having 11 and 10 players chosen respectively.  The first SEC player chosen was Florida’s defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. quickly followed by Alabama wide out Amari Cooper.

The conference, however, didn’t stop there as they continued their dominance throughout the event.
