  1. SEC position rankings: Defensive line

    Chris Low

    Some around the SEC suggested that the defensive line talent in the league might have been down last season. Only five SEC defensive linemen went in the top four rounds of the 2014 NFL draft, and only two of those were tackles. But as we look a...

  2. Fans tab Gurley as SEC's top pick in 2015

    Chris Low

    The past two NFL drafts have come and gone without a running back being selected in the first round, which had never happened in the common draft era, which dates to the NFL-AFL merger in 1967. Teams are waiting until later in the draft to get the...

  3. Back to the future: Alabama vs. LSU

    Chris Low

    As the 2014 NFL draft drew to a close last Saturday, I could still hear Joe Pendry's prophetic words in the press box on Nov. 5, 2011. Pendry, who had just retired the previous year as Alabama's offensive line coach, said there was a very simple r...

  5. Flying under the radar to NFL success

    Chris Low

    Missouri's Michael Sam wasn't the only star player from the SEC to go in the lower rounds of the NFL draft or not be drafted at all last week. In fact, 10 position players from the 2013 coaches' All-SEC team (first and second teams) went in the fi...

  6. Looking ahead to Day 2 in the draft

    Day 1 of the NFL draft was a good one for the SEC, which had 11 players selected in the first round, including 10 of the first 23 picks. It's on to the second and third rounds later Friday night, and several more SEC players are sure to hear their...

  7. SEC NFL draft primer

    Chris Low

    A year ago, the SEC produced 12 first-round NFL draft selections, which tied the record set by the ACC in 2006. Most projections this year would seem to suggest that record is safe. In his latest mock draft, ESPN's Todd McShay has 10 SEC player...

  10. SEC quarterbacks and the NFL draft

    Chris Low

    Four SEC quarterbacks are expected to be selected later this week in the 2014 NFL draft, and there's a chance it could be five if South Carolina's Connor Shaw is snatched up in the later rounds. Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel is obviously the SEC's bi...

  11. Auditing the SEC's talent producers

    Chris Low

    If you're looking at the NFL draft through the perspective of a college football fan, what does it tell you about your school? I've always felt that it magnifies two things -- how efficient a school is at acquiring talent and how efficient it is a...

  12. Five SEC players I'd pay to see play again

    Chris Low

    Herschel Walker said recently that even at 50 he could still play in the NFL. I'm not about to doubt him. Walker remains the greatest college football player I've ever seen play, and more than 30 years after he played his last game at Georgia, I'd...

    Jaylen Watkins was Florida's most versatile defensive back last season, and he was also the Gators' most impressive defensive back on the final day of the NFL combine. Watkins ran a 4.41 in the 40-yard dash and also did 22 reps on the bench press....

  14. Sam turns in so-so numbers at combine

    Chris Low

    Missouri's Michael Sam made big news off the field a couple of weeks ago. On the field, at least at the NFL scouting combine, he didn't make the kind of news Monday he was hoping for and turned in average numbers. Sam, who was measured at 6-foo...

    South Carolina's Jadeveon Clowney said he was going to put on a show at the NFL combine, and he delivered Monday morning with an unofficial time of 4.47 in the 40-yard dash. That's a blistering time for a any defensive end. Clowney weighed in at 2...

  16. Former head coaches dot Saban's staff

    Chris Low

    It's not that unusual in the SEC to see former head coaches at the collegiate level (or even the NFL level) show back up in an assistant's role. For example, Cam Cameron just finished his first season as LSU's offensive coordinator. He was the Mia...
