Quantity Over Quality? SEC Only Has 1 NFL Defender on Top 5 Highest-Paid List and 2 in the Top 10

Every year, it seems, the SEC sends dozens of elite defenders to the NFL. The 2022 NFL Draft was no different. In fact, the Georgia Bulldogs set a record with five defensive players going in Round 1. Interestingly, though, despite the enormous number of players going from the Southeastern college football conference to the NFL, SEC alums only make up 20% of the top five and top 10 highest-paid NFL defenders list.

The SEC sends a ton of players to the NFL, period. For the better part of the last two decades, the conference has dominated the college football landscape.
