49ers from Southeast Region

Current Players Drafted by the 49ers from the Southeast Region (Since 2005):

Frank Gore (Miami)

Parys Haralson (Tennessee)

Patrick Willis (Ole Miss)

Ray McDonald (Florida)

Tarell Brown (Texas)

Michael Crabtree (Texas Tech)

Ricky Jean Francois (LSU)

Anthony Dixon (Mississippi State)

Aldon Smith (Missouri)

Chris Culliver (South Carolina)

Bruce Miller (Central Florida)

Demarcus Dobbs (Georgia) – UDFA

Tony Jerod-Eddie (Texas A&M) – UDFA

Eric Reid (LSU)

Tank Carradine (Florida State)

Marcus Lattimore (South Carolina)

Corey Lemonier (Auburn)

Quinton Patton (Louisiana Tech)

Quinton Dial (Alabama)

Nick Moody (Florida State)

B.J. Daniels (South Florida)

Justin Smith, Glenn Dorsey and Carlos Rogers are a few players the 49ers have also acquired in free agency that had big-time careers in the SEC.

After taking a step back and looking at the big picture, it sort of makes sense, too. The 49ers—with their toughness, prolific ground game and incredible athletic ability—closely resemble the model SEC team.

Just read this article on Bleacher Report and the more I thought about it the 49ers resemble those powerhouses from the SEC. Tough, team oriented football player can be checked next to just about everyone on the list. Someone like Quinton Dial will pay dividends in the near future due to his exposure to such a tough conference. It seems the front office targets players from the region.
tis all for nought without the last missing piece.....

The states of Texas and Missouri are not in the Southeastern region of the United States.

Texas is in the Southwest.

Missouri is directly below Iowa, and Iowa is definitely not in the Northeast.
And Dallas is in the NFCE, so what......he was talking about the SEC where $$$ trumps geographical logic

Really. I missed that.

When exactly did Florida St, Miamia, South Florida, Louisiana Tech, and Texas join the SEC.
Oklahoma, Texas, Florida St. and Miami should already be in the SEC to make a mega college football superconference IMO, but the domino effect of likely upsetting old college basketball rivalries and recent commitments to the Big10/ACC won't allow it in the foreseeable future

Never mind. You are right.

All those schools listed by the original poster are in the SEC.

Texas and Missouri are in the Southeast.

yourself....the OP in his TITLE specified the southeastern REGION (which technically all those schools are, respective to the Bay Area--south & east of here) and only further down did the OP compare the Niners to a typical team from the SEC, which of course doesn't all of the schools in that region and arguably has expanded to outside the traditional bounds if the "southeast"....seems like you're the one mixing up the specific conference with the general region
What does this prove ?

Coaching?

most of those school s get kids from all over the country

All it proves is that the SEC is where most of the good players wanna play.

OK. Thank you.

I never knew geographic regions are named relative to their location to the Bay Area.

According to your logic, New Mexico and Arizona are in the Southeastern region.

You were the one that said the schools listed were in the SEC.

But, of course you are right. The world is structured according to your logic and technicalities.

Excuse me.

Let's play nice. Especially when we are chatting about the SEC. If we are talking about conferences, we must remember that actual regional location does not always completely apply. Thus, while Missouri is often considered mid-western (it is not really, it is more southern than many realize), it now resides in the SEC. Texas is a large swath of land that could and does inhabit many regions. Texas A&M (Aggie-dogs; sorry, is my SEC bias showing) is now an SEC program. Besides, we all need to realize that the SEC is really just a revamp of the old SWC minus the Longhorns (flip those horns down my man).
