Alabama has plenty of pro-ready players on its roster and that will be proven in April when they are drafted into the NFL. However, ESPN’s Mel Kiper thinks that the Crimson Tide could have as many as six players go in the first round alone.
The last team to have six players taken in the first round was Miami in 2004, which featured some legendary talent still in the league today. The Crimson Tide has also had a first-round selection every year since 2009 with center Ryan Kelly holding that streak together last year. This April’s draft shouldn’t be an issue though as at least three of these players will definitely be taken in the first round.
