2011 NFL Draft Picks: ACC Tops SEC In Round Four, Tying Conference Total

While the SEC produced five of the 2011 NFL Draft's top six picks, ACC football has been able to match its big brother in total draft picks through four rounds. Both have sent 24 players each -- the Tobacco Road Mafia and company sent five in the round, while God's Conference produced only four. For more on non-Southeastern draft picks, head to SB Nation's NFL Draft hub.

Two of those SEC players were Georgia Bulldogs -- Kris Durham to Seattle, Clint Boling to Cincinnati. Tennessee Volunteers TE Luke Stocker went to Tampa Bay, and Mississippi St. Bulldogs LB K.J. Wright to Seattle as well.

The Clemson Tigers saw another two players picked, with the Titans taking RB Jamie Harper and Bills getting OL Chris Hairston. Former Georgia Tech coach Chan Gailey also picked up UNC DB Da'Norris Searcy. Virginia Tech Hokies DB Rashad Carmichael went to secondary-poor Houston, while Miami LB Colin McCarthy joins Harper in Tennessee.
