Todd McShay's Mock Draft 3.0

3/6/2013

The NFL draft is creeping closer and closer, and now that pro days are sprouting up all around the country, it's time to check in on what resident draft guru Todd McShay has to say about next month's draft.

His new mock draft is out and the SEC has quite a few familiar faces inside the first 32 picks of the draft, especially within the top 10.

Texas A&M left tackle Luke Joeckel is the highest-slotted SEC player, checking in at No. 2 to the Jacksonville Jaguars. A word of advice for Joeckel: Sunscreen!

The SEC then takes picks No. 3 and No. 4, with Florida defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd, who really has shot up draft boards in recent weeks, going No. 3 to the Oakland Raiders, and Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner going fourth to the Philadelphia Eagles. And he has LSU defensive end Barkevious Mingo going ninth to the New York Jets.

Former SEC players took 12 of the the first 32 picks in McShay's mock draft.

Here's where SEC players landed:

2. Luke Joeckel, LT, Texas A&M -- Jacksonville Jaguars

3. Sharrif Floyd, DT, Florida -- Oakland Raiders

4. Dee Milliner, CB, Alabama -- Philadelphia Eagles

9. Barkevious Mingo, DE, LSU -- New York Jets

14. Sheldon Richardson, DT, Missouri -- Carolina Panthers

15. Alec Ogletree, LB, Georgia -- New Orleans Saints
