2011 NFL Draft Picks: SEC, ACC Close In Total Picks As Georgia Tech Players Wait

With five rounds of the 2011 NFL Draft finalized, zero Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets players have heard their names called. RB Anthony Allen and a DB or two are expected to be picked at some point, but it's getting mighty close for the Jackets. The ACC did get to see a pair of North Carolina Tar Heels selected in round No. 5: QB T.J. Yates went to the Houston Texans, and RB Johnny White joined C.J. Spiller in Buffalo.

The SEC now holds a two-pick edge* over its basketball counterpart, but it was a weak round for the Southeastern as well.

Arkansas Razorbacks TE D.J. Williams slipped to Green Bay, who apparently do not have enough tight ends yet. Tennessee WR Denarius Moore wound up in Oakland, Florida SS Ahmad Black has a cross-state move to Tampa Bay in his future and Mississippi State DL Pernell McPhee becomes the second Missy State Dawg to close out a round, going to Baltimore.

* According to my running totals, but I have not slept much.
