Now that Round 2 and Round 3 (click for complete picks and analysis and such) of the 2012 NFL Draft are in the books, it's time to update college conference power rankings, the most important story of the weekend to be sure. As always (GRRRRRRRR) the SEC comes out on top, but a weak display of depth has the margin narrowing. This is so important!
The Pac-12 and Big Ten have closed the gap, while the third round saw four mid-majors have better showings than the SEC. Four! Check out Conference USA, the only non-BCS conference to land a pick in all three rounds.
The scoring system here: each pick is assigned a point value, with pick No. 1 worth 253 points and pick No. 253 worth one point. And all points in between. (Also, for a little high school braggadocio, check out this map.) Pleased to see Canada and Montana making appearances:
