Every Philadelphia Eagles fan should know the best talent plays in the SEC.

You can call it southern bias or whatever you want. Football in the south is a secular religion, and some of the NCAA’s most historic programs, especially the ones that are based in that area will always be in the conversation when it comes to Heisman Trophy voting and the College Football Playoff. Everyone knows that, and that includes Philadelphia Eagles fans.

There’s a reason why the SEC has that massive television contract with CBS and why prospects that come from this conference are constantly sought after whenever it’s time to start discussing any NFL Draft. From top to bottom, whether you want to debate this or not, most of the best players go down south to play their college football.

That’s why, year after year, we watch teams from other conferences play SEC schools, and they look slow and overmatched. Like it, love it or hate it, that can’t be denied.

How about we have some fun? How about an Eagles and NFL mock draft where the only players that are considered are the ones that come from the Southeastern Conference? Our staff argued and debated over it. Here’s what we came up with. Here’s a seven-round All-SEC mock that much of our staff still can’t agree on. The debate table is open.
