Kudos to the Birmingham News, which has compiled a survey of current two-deep offensive and defensive rosters at the 12 member football programs of the Southeastern Conference.

Here’s what it found:

Florida does NOT have the most products on SEC rosters; Georgia does.

As of this week, the Peach State has 86 players on two-deep SEC rosters; the Sunshine State has 84, which ranks second. Alabama is third with 66.

As the paper noted, “the numbers can change slightly from week to week, based on injuries and depth chart shuffles.”

How deep is Georgia?

According to the News, “Every SEC school has at least two players among its top 22 from the state. The state of Florida provides at least one on every depth chart.”

You can find the complete survey information HERE.

Here are some of the SEC two-deepers the Tampa Bay area has produced:

-Javier Arenas (Robinson), DB, Alabama
-Orson Charles (Plant), TE/WR, Georgia
-Riley Cooper (CCC), WR, Florida
-Stephen Garcia (Jefferson), QB, South Carolina
-Jarvis Giles (Gaither), RB, South Carolina
-A.J. Jones (Middleton), LB, Florida
-Dexter McCluster (Largo), WR, Ole Miss
