Maybe former Nebraska defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh becoming the No. 1 overall pick in April's NFL draft isn't as inevitable as many NFL talent scouts are leading us to believe.
The NFL has a total of 10 first-round draft picks in McShay's most recent draft. The SEC is next with seven players.
If that number holds up, it would dwarf the Big 12's previous record of seven first-round draft picks set last season.
Here are McShay's most recent first-round projections for Big 12 players.
1. Oklahoma DT Gerald McCoy, St. Louis Rams.
2. Nebraska DT Ndamukong Suh, Detroit Lions.
