The SEC is highly debated as the best conference in college football. No matter your view on the subject, there is no question that the SEC produces some of the best talents in the NFL. Here are my top 20 SEC prospects going into the 2020 NFL Draft.

The SEC led all conferences in the country with 64 total draft selections in the 2019 NFL Draft with only the Big 10 within 25. The first 20 SEC players to be taken in last year’s draft all happened before the conclusion of the 2nd round. Look for that to happen again in this year’s 2020 NFL Draft.

LSU, Alabama, Georgia, and Auburn have produced some of the NFL’s most notable players. This year, we could see up to 20 SEC players selected in the first round. That is ridiculous, but it goes to show that this conference brings in and develops some of the best in the nation. The SEC has the consensus number one selection in the 2020 NFL Draft in LSU quarterback, Joe Burrow.

Here, I will highlight my top 20 prospects in the SEC going into the 2020 NFL Draft. This is one of the best years the SEC has had as far as NFL talent going into the draft and made this list really difficult to determine.

Joe Burrow should go ahead and pack his bags for Cincinnati, Ohio. There is no doubt that the Bengals will be better with Burrow as their quarterback. He had an incredible senior season, filling up his resume with accolades including a Heisman Trophy and a National Championship. How many of his LSU teammates will join him as a top 20 prospect in the SEC? Let’s see.
