10 things to know about the NFL draft
The second day of the draft was not for heavyweights. After 18 offensive and defensive linemen totaling nearly 2 1/2 tons were selected in the first round, the second round dropped to five. The third round, though, saw 12 linemen taken. Of course, teams turned their attentions to skill positions, with eight wide receivers and 17 defensive backs taken Friday night.
1. CONFERENCE LEADERS
To the surprise of no one, the Southeastern Conference has provided the NFL with the most draft picks of any conference _ 32 of 97 so far. That’s one-third of the newest class of the NFL players. The SEC breakdown is 12 in the first round, eight in the second and 12 in the third. Stay tuned for the next four rounds.
No. 2 is the Atlantic Coast Conference with 12, including six first-rounders.
