SEC and the Big Board

Mel Kiper's latest Big BoardInsider of top NFL draft prospects has a Pac-12 flavor to it.

Five of his top 10 players are from the Pac-12, with South Carolina receiver Alshon Jeffery being the only SEC player in the top 10. The 6-foot-4, 229-pound Jeffery is No. 5.

The SEC has six players listed among Kiper's top 25 draft prospects, including three from Alabama. Running back Trent Richardson is No. 16, cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick No. 18 and linebacker Courtney Upshaw No. 23.

Also making it from the SEC were LSU cornerback Morris Claiborne (No. 22) and South Carolina cornerback Stephon Gilmore (No. 25).
