Alabama’s NFL Draft Prospects

Posted by | Apr 22, 2012 | -

The Alabama Crimson Tide continues to be an NFL pipeline under head coach Nick Saban. In the 2011 NFL Draft, the Crimson Tide had a school record four players drafted in the first round. Marcell Dareus was picked third by the Bills, Julio Jones was picked sixth by the Falcons, James Carpenter was picked 25th by the Seahawks, and then Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram was selected 28th by the Saints. As they say, records were made to be broken, and most draft analysts have the Crimson Tide projected to have five first round draft selections. To go along with the projected five first round selections, the Crimson Tide has other projected draftees. It’s crazy to think back in 2008, Alabama had no players selected in the draft. There are currently 25 Crimson Tide players in the NFL, and 12 of them have been selected in the draft since 2009, and two others played under Nick Saban. [More]
