SEC and the NBA draft 2001-2006...

I'll limit this to those actually drafted and not the ones who made the fatal mistake of declaring and going undrafted. Coming into the 2006 draft 6 SEC players were drafted in the 1st round. From the looks of the 2006 NBA draft the SEC is on the rise (no kidding).

Most of the research can be credited to nbadraft.com
