Redrafting the SEC Rosters for 2013

Jadeveon Clowney

Jadeveon Clowney

Fantasy drafts are a popular part of any offseason, but Athlon Sports (with a little bit of help from a few friends) took it to the next level when it came to the SEC.

College football’s premier conference is loaded with talent, so we thought it would be interesting to erase the rosters and conduct a redraft with 14 managers serving as the coaches of SEC programs.

The rules for the draft were simple: 22 overall picks, with 11 coming on offense and 11 on defense. Teams were allowed flexibility for schemes, as some managers chose to draft four receivers over a second running back or starting tight end.

What do the results of the draft tell us for 2013? It’s hard to glean much from a fantasy draft, but as expected, Alabama had the most players selected (40), while Kentucky had the fewest (12). Interestingly enough, Vanderbilt checked in tied at fourth with 25 players drafted. The Commodores ranked ahead of Texas A&M and South Carolina in the amount of players selected. Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel was the No. 1 overall pick, with South Carolina defensive end Jadeveon Clowney picked at No. 2. 

Note: Some players have been dismissed or left the team since the draft was conducted. Number after player indicates round in which he was selected.
