The national champion Georgia Bulldogs take the prize for the most first round players in our mock draft with 5, and they have a number of other prospects who could be considered first round material and will likely go high on day 2 of the draft. Only 3 other schools produced multiple first rounders by our count, with Alabama, Michigan and Ohio State having 2 each. The Southeastern Conference produced the 2 teams that battled for the national title, so it stands to reason that they had the most top picks among conferences, with an amazing 11. The often maligned Big 10 came in second with 8, while the Atlantic Coast Conference and the Pac 12 had 5 and 4 respectively.

COMING SOON: Our draft experts submit their seven round mock drafts for the local NFL franchise, the two-time reigning AFC East champion Buffalo Bills.
