Of the 15 SEC players who have opted to bypass their senior seasons and turn pro, more than half (eight) are defensive backs.
Berry, a three-year starter and two-time All-American, recorded 87 tackles, 7 pass breakups and 2 interceptions in 2009. He also returned four kickoffs for a 25.0-yard average.
Rogan, a two-year starter who can play any of the four secondary positions, recorded 69 tackles, 1 interception and 6 pass breakups. He returned 2 kickoffs for a 26.0 average and six punts for a 7.7-yard average.
Haden, a 5-11, 190-pound All-American, is regarded by many as the best cornerback in the NFL Draft. He registered 68 tackles, 10 pass breakups and 4 interceptions last fall.
Wright, a 6-0, 204-pounder, totaled 165 tackles and 8 interceptions for his career but had just 32 tackles and 3 interceptions in 2009. He is rated a late-round draft pick.
Dunlap, a 6-6, 290-pounder, recorded 9 sacks last fall - 3 in the Sugar Bowl vs. Cincinnati - and is projected as an early first-round pick.
Hernandez, a 6-2, 250-pounder, caught 111 passes as a Gator, most by a tight end in program history. He reeled in 68 passes for 850 yards and five touchdowns as a senior and is rated a first- to second-round draft pick.
Pouncey, a 6-5, 318-pounder, won the Rimington Trophy as the NCAA's premier center. He is rated a second- to third-round pick.
Jones, a 6-2, 188-pounder, registered 206 career tackles and 11 career interceptions. He had 73 stops and 4 interceptions in 2009.
Curran, a 5-11, 225-pounder, recorded 298 tackles in three years, including an SEC-best 130 as a junior last fall. Because of his height, he is expected to fall to Round 3 or 4.
Jackson, a 5-11, 198-pounder, made 159 stops and 5 interceptions in his career but just 49 stops and 1 interception in '09.
McClain, an All-American, is a 6-4, 258-pounder who registered 105 stops - 14.5 of them for loss - in 2009. He is projected as an early Round-1 pick.
Norton, a 6-0, 200-pounder, recorded just 14 tackles and 2 interceptions in 2009. He missed 2008 due to hamstring and hernia surgeries. His best year was 2007, when he intercepted 5 passes.
Jones, a 6-3, 220-pounder, had 66 stops and 3 interceptions in 2009. He finished his three-year career at Baton Rouge with 157 tackles and 5 picks.
South Carolina is saying goodbye to junior defensive end Clifton Geathers. The 6-8, 280-pounder recorded 41 stops last fall, including 8 1/2 tackles for loss and 3 1/2 sacks. He is generally regarded as a Round 4-6 draft pick.
That leaves Snead. The Rebel QB completed 56.3 percent of his passes for 2,762 yards as a sophomore, with 26 touchdowns and only 13 interceptions. He regressed as a senior, though, completing 54.4 percent for 2,632 yards with 20 TDs and 20 interceptions.
