SEC East: 2012 Top Draft Prospects

Alshon Jeffrey NFL Draft Patriots

You better get used to this.

Before the NCAA football season starts shortly, we’re going to give you a quick preview from the vantage point of the 2012 NFL Draft – detailing the best prospect on each team in the BCS.

Up today is the SEC East – you can also check out the NFL Draft sleepers for the SEC East.

Florida
Jaye Howard, DL (6-3/305)

Howard has the ability to be a disruptive one-gap tackle in the NFL. He flashed at times in 2010, racking up 10 TFL and 3 sacks – he needs to show some more consistency in 2011 to sneak into the top 100 NFL Draft prospects.

Georgia
Cordy Glenn, OL (6-5/320) / Ben Jones, OL (6-3/315)

You really have to put these two guys together. Each of these Georgia blockers are big maulers that can really pave the way for the running game. They aren’t too shabby in the passing game either. Both should be selected in the first two rounds.

Kentucky
Danny Trevathan, LB (6-0/230)

All he did last year was lead the SEC in tackles. This year he has stated that he wants to add returning kicks to his repertoire. This sort of athleticism will lead the undersized linebacker to hearing his name called in the 2012 NFL Draft.

South Carolina
Alshon Jeffrey, WR (6-4/230)

Jeffrey is an incredible receiver talent. He has the size, strength, speed, hands, and leaping ability that NFL teams crave. Will easily be hyped as much or more than AJ Green and Julio Jones.

Tennessee
Tauren Poole, RB (5-10/215)

Jets Draft said it best – he just hits the hole running as hard as any other back in the NCAA. If he can prove some long speed, he could be a top 50 pick in the 2012 NFL Draft.

Vanderbilt
Casey Hayward, CB (6-0/190)

Underrated, often overlooked corner with great skills. Six interceptions in his junior season might make him the most heralded Vandy CB prospect since DJ Moore.
