It could be a record haul tonight in the NFL draft for the SEC.
As many as 12 players from the SEC are being projected to go in the first round, which will be carried live tonight on ESPN starting at 8 p.m. ET. Rounds 2 and 3 will be on Friday, also on ESPN beginning at 7 p.m. Rounds 4-7 will be on Saturday with ESPN coverage beginning at noon.
The most first-round selections the SEC has produced in one draft was 11 in 2007.
So if 12 go tonight, that would break the record.

RB Trent Richardson, Alabama
CB Morris Claiborne, LSU
