Since the 2000 NFL draft, Georgia and Tennessee are the leading talent producers in the SEC when it comes to pumping out NFL draft choices.

During that span, Georgia has produced 61 draft picks and Tennessee 60. However, it's been more than five years since either one of those schools has won an SEC championship. Georgia last won an SEC title in 2005 and also won one in 2002. Tennessee hasn't won one since its 1998 national championship season.

Florida is close behind with 59 draft selections since 2000, and LSU has 55.

Ohio State is No. 1 nationally with 73 followed by Southern California with 69 and Miami with 67. Georgia and Tennessee are both in the top 5 nationally.

Florida and Tennessee top the SEC with the most first-round selections since 2000 with 12 apiece. Georgia has 11.
