We finish off previewing the SEC for next level talent with the final three programs in the league including South Carolina- the team we feel is the most underrated in the conference and possibly the nation.  The last time South Carolina had two players selected in round one was thirty years ago, 1981.  Depending on the decisions of their top underclassmen that could change next April.
