508 SEC players on NFL rosters; Listings by NFL teams and SEC schools plus teams with most players from one school

By Vince Ferrara / @VinceSports

As we enter most of the rookie mini-camps in the NFL, I decided to dive into each team’s roster.

Below is a ranking of SEC players for each NFL team, as well as the 14 SEC teams listed based on number of players on active rosters. I also list the teams that have the most players from any college team on their current roster, which is an interesting group.

Obviously, there are roster changes daily and not every team shows players the same way on rosters at the same time in the off-season of expanded rosters.

I included undrafted free agents that were added to rosters. I did not include players on reserve lists, exclusive rights free agents or unrestricted free agents.

Most SEC Players On The NFL Rosters (508)
Alabama 71 (28 teams)
LSU 68 (27 teams)
Georgia 58 (28 teams)
Florida 43 (25 teams)
Auburn 36 (24 teams)
Texas A&M 34 (23 teams)
Tennessee 31 (17 teams)
Ole Miss 28 (19 teams)

With NFL teams allowed to carry as many as 90 players on their off-season active rosters (appx. 2,880 players,) the SEC (508 players,) makes up approximately 17.6 % of the league right now. On average, each team has 16 (15.9) SEC players per team.

You can theorize that the numbers of SEC players in the NFL are simply inflated because of expanded rosters. However, in my years of tracking SEC players in the National Football League, the percentages will be very similar once teams get down to the final 53 or even when you included practice squads.

College football’s most successful, talent-laden conference continues to make-up the biggest chunk of the NFL. It’s no different this season, and likely won’t be different any time soon.
