The SEC led all conferences with 49 players selected in this year’s NFL draft, including USC’s Jadeveon Clowney and 10 others picked in the first round. Ten SEC players who could be first-round picks in the 2015 draft:

CEDRIC OGBUEHI

OT, Texas A&M

Following Luke Joeckel in 2013 and Jake Matthews in 2014, he’ll be A&M’s third OT picked in first round.

TODD GURLEY

RB, Georgia

To be a first-round pick, he’ll have to stay healthy. He has 12 100-yard games and is a bully of a back.

DANTE FOWLER

LB/DE, Florida

He’ll replace Clowney as top pass rusher in the SEC. He plays Gators’ hybrid position.

LANDON COLLINS

S, Alabama

He could be the top strong safety in the country and is known as a great tackler.

A.J. CANN

G, USC

USC’s anchor on the offensive line for three seasons, making a team-high 38 career starts.

AMARI COOPER

WR, Alabama

Receivers can put up big numbers in Lane Kiffin’s offense, and he is one of the best pass catchers.

MIKE DAVIS

RB, USC

Can explode for the home runs (multiple 70-plus-yard runs last season) and grind out tough yards.

TJ YELDON

RB, Alabama

He has 2,343 yards and 27 touchdowns in two seasons – despite sharing carries.

COREY ROBINSON

T, USC

He has a 6-foot-8, 349-pound frame – exactly what NFL scouts are looking for.

NICK MARSHALL

QB, Auburn

Could be the most debated prospect in 2015 draft and wind up at a different position in NFL.
