Don’t be fooled if 49ers.com takes a distinct look this week or any other week leading up to the 2011 NFL Draft. We’ve segmented our pre-draft coverage by breaking down major college conferences, leading off with the Southeastern Conference, home to some of this year’s finest prospects.
The powerful conference had seven players picked in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft and could have even more selected early in 2011. We’ll cover some of the conference’s best players all week long by way of “At the Podium” video packages from the recent NFL Scouting Combine as well as “Draft Spotlight” stories on the biggest SEC play-makers.
The Auburn Tigers went right through the most competitive conference with a perfect 14-0 record and feature some of this year’s most talked about players. Auburn overtook Alabama in the West Division, beat South Carolina in the SEC Championship and defeated Oregon in the BCS Championship game.
Currently, 10 players on the 49ers roster played their college ball in the SEC. Which prospects from the SEC would you like to see in a 49ers uniform next season? Leave your thoughts in the comments section below.
