If you're wondering where South Carolina ranked as far as overall number of draft picks, here's the article.
Apr 28 Intro:
Alshon Jeffery finally left the board last night, and should be playing in the NFL with one of the biggest chips in history on his shoulder. South Carolina fans will be paying close attention to him in the future...to say "I told you so."
In the meantime, bookmark this page, Gamecock fans. All the players leaving the garnet and black uniform behind for the NFL will be brought to you right here.
Apr 27 Intro:
After producing two first-round draft picks, South Carolina is looking almost as good as we expected. The biggest question entering tonight's rounds is this: When is Alshon Jeffery going to get selected?
As you can see from the comments below, there are a couple of reasons to excuse him from being picked in the top 10 or 15. Leaving him completely out of the first round, though, is just baffling.

Steve Spurrier is building the kind of team in South Carolina that its fans have dreamed about for decades. If it weren't for the fact that Georgia is dodging the three top teams from the SEC West in 2012, South Carolina would be a virtual lock to represent the SEC East in the conference title game in Atlanta.
In the process of building that team, Spurrier has brought ridiculous talent to the Gamecocks.
In this year's draft, South Carolina provides the NFL with the nation's best college receiver. (Yes, Justin Blackmon was all over the TV last year, but he was not playing against the SEC defenses that Alshon Jeffery was embarrassing week after week.)
South Carolina has a five-man presence in the NFL draft this year, and that's a great feeling for a team that's on the rise in the nation's premier conference.

The list of potential draftees from South Carolina:
1) Alshon Jeffery, WR
2) Melvin Ingram, OLB
3) Stephon Gilmore, CB
4) Antonio Allen, SS
5) Travian Robertson, DT
South Carolina has some serious talent entering the 2012 draft. It will definitely boost recruiting for Spurrier if the top three on this list go in the top 15 of the draft.
