I have alway's been of the opinion that the best college players and teams are in the SEC. The SEC had 49 players selected in last years NFL draft, the 11th time in the past 13 years that it tied or led for the most draft picks among college football conferences.
I decided to see how many players that the Bills have drafted from the SEC in the past decade in the first 3 rounds and the answer was Josh Reed from LSU. The Bills currently have several players on the team from the SEC that were not drafted by them - Kyle Williams, Marcus Stroud, Spencer Johnson, Antonio Coleman and George Wilson.
In viewing the Bills drafts, they seem to have drafted a lot of players from the Big-10, such as Whitner, Tim Anderson, Nate Clements, Poz and Maybin. Which I find it interesting that they never drafted "offensive linemen" from the Big-10, since the conference produces many stellar linemen.
Ozzie Newsome always brags on the SEC and drafts a lot of players out of the SEC conference. Currently, they have 9 players on their team from the SEC, including Ellerbe, Ben Grubbs, Michael Oher, Ken Hamlin, Le-Ron McClain and Jarret Johnson, just to name a few.
I wonder if the Bills Scouting Department even has a presence in SEC land?
