Fletcher Cox selected 12th overall in NFL Draft

Fletcher Cox is headed to the city of brotherly love. The Philadelphia Eagles selected the former Mississippi State defensive tackle with the twelfth pick in this year's NFL draft. Cox was just one of four Southeastern Conference Products to be picked early.

The Cleveland Browns, who acquired the third overall pick from the Minnesota Vikings, picked up former Alabama running back Trent Richardson. Richardson's teammate, safety Mark Barron, was selected seventh overall by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and former Louisiana State safety Morris Claiborne was selected sixth by the Dallas Cowboys.

Overall, nine SEC players were selected in the first round, six coming from either Alabama or LSU.
