The Southeastern Conference is having a record-breaking showing in the NFL draft.
With the second round complete, 21 players had been taken from SEC schools, including seven from Alabama, the most of any school. The Crimson Tide had four first-rounders on Thursday night and then tackle Cam Robinson (No. 34 overall to Jacksonville), linebacker Ryan Anderson (No. 49 overall to Washington) and defensive tackle Dalvin Tomlinson (No. 55 overall to the New York Giants) went Friday night.
Anderson joined teammate Jonathan Allen, a defensive lineman who went in the first round to Washington.
“It’s about to get real,” Anderson said.
Alabama added two more players early in the third round when outisde linebacker Tim Williams went to Baltimore and receiver ArDarius Stewart was taken by the Jets.
Two cornerbacks from Florida were taken in the second round _ Quincy Wilson (No. 46 to Indianapolis) and Teez Tabor (No. 53 to Detroit), and Vanderbilt linebacker Zach Cunningham went No. 57 to Houston.
The SEC lead all conferences with 12 first-round picks.
