The first player selected from the Sun Belt Conference in the 2012 draft was Louisiana Lafayette cornerback Dwight Bentley who was tabbed by the Detroit Lions in round three.  The Rajin Cajuns are likely to once again have the first player from the conference selected in the 2013 draft.  Again a cornerback.  Again in round three….
