2011 NFL Draft: Second Round Could Be Full Of SEC Players As Well

We saw 10 SEC players drafted in the first round of the 2011 NFL Draft on Thursday, which is a pretty high number considering there are only 32 first round picks. The second and third rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft will take place at 6 p.m. on Friday, and there figure to be plenty of SEC players represented in those rounds as well. SB Nation has come out with their second round mock draft, and they have six SEC players projected to go in the next 32 picks. That's not quite as high as 10 obviously, but still pretty impressive. 

The six players they expect to be drafted are Florida tackle Marcus Gilbert, Kentucky WR Randall Cobb, Georgia guard Clint Boling, LSU DT Drake Nevis, Georgia linebacker Justin Houston, and Arkansas QB Ryan Mallett. As always, I wouldn't be surprised if a few more SEC players snuck into the second round because I'm sure that GM's trust that conference to produce quality NFL players.

The first round of the 2011 NFL Draft starts at 8 p.m. (ET) on Thursday, April 28, and SB Nation has everything you need to prepare: NFL mock drafts, draft projections, scouting reports, the full NFL draft schedule and more.
