The SEC set yet another benchmark on the opening weekend of the 2017 NFL season, placing an all-time high 368 former players on NFL rosters to open the 2017 season.

The previous SEC and national record was 362, which was set just one year ago.

LSU led the league with 45 former players on NFL rosters, followed by Alabama (44), Florida (39) and Georgia (36).

The SEC led the nation's conferences in draft picks for the 11th consecutive year in 2017. The national-leading 53 NFL Draft picks were the third most in SEC history, trailing only the 63 in 2013 and 54 in 2015. The SEC has averaged over 50 selections per draft since 2006.

The SEC had 12 First Round picks in 2017, four more than the eight (8) the league produced in 2016. During the last 11 NFL Drafts, the SEC has a nation-leading 101 players taken in the opening round, an average of over nine per season. A total of 21 SEC players were taken in first two rounds of the 2017 NFL Draft , the most by a single conference through the first two rounds in common draft era.

Only five times in NFL Draft history as a single conference produced 10 or more First Round selections - the SEC accounts for four (4) of those occasions. Over the last seven NFL Drafts, the SEC has accounted for over 1/3 of the Top 10 selections.

Since 2010, the SEC has more than double (77) the total amount of First Round selections than the next closest conference.
