What do the NFL sites around our network think about the players coming from the SEC? Read on

We've already looked at what our SEC colleagues think about the picks from their respective teams, but what about the NFL teams taking the new players on? Some are excited, and some are ... not excited.

2014 NFL Draft Results: Buccaneers select Mike Evans in first round: "While he's not the explosive, yards-after-catch receiver the Bucs ideally want, he'll be a very productive receiver for them, provide an instant boost to their offense, and could be the future replacement for Vincent Jackson."
