The Myth of Bill Belichick liking SEC players has proven to be true. The  SEC's dominance in college football, especially winning six National Championship titles in the last decade is remarkable. No conference in College Football comes close. The Big 12 and the Big 10 conferences come in 2nd and 3rd place (total selections in 11 years) in a tight race.

Side note-Under Bill Polian, the Colts have the most Big 10 selections under Polian's tenure, same for the Steelers. If you take a glimpse at Bill Parcells 1st and 2nd round selections during his tenure with the Giants, Jets, Cowboys and the Dolphins, He loves taking Big 10 players.

Let us look at the conference success rate under Bill Belichick. Using my previous fanpost , I will break down the conference success rate and round by round success.

 In the 4th round, Belichick hit on 40 % of all his 4th round selections in 11 years. The SEC selections have a better success rate at 60%. Aaron Hernandez, Jonathan Wilhite and Jarvis Green being the hits while QB Davey and RB Cedric Cobbs being the misses.

There were no SEC selections in 11 years under Belichick in the 5th round.

 In the 6th round (26% success rate), the SEC went 1 and 1. Jermey Mincey being the miss while Myron Pyror being the hit. Success rate-50%
