One of the primary distinctions about the SEC is how many of its players go on to prolific NFL careers.
That number usually stands out in the number of players selected to go to the Pro Bowl every season. While the game itself has come under criticism in recent years due to lack effort or feel of an actual football game, it’s still an honor to be recognized.
Here’s the list of former SEC stars who will play in the game this season:
Alabama (6): Amari Cooper, Dont’a Hightower, C.J. Mosley, Julio Jones, Ha Ha Clinton-Dix, Landon Collins
Florida (4): Maurkice Pouncey, Reggie Nelson, Jordan Reed, Janoris Jenkins
Georgia (3): Geno Atkins, A.J. Green, Thomas Davis
Texas A&M (3): Von Miller, Mike Evans, Michael Bennett
