As expected, Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley has declared his intentions to leave school early and make himself available for the NFL Draft in April.

In just three seasons, the South Florida native racked up 2,781 receiving yards which is good for third all-time at the Capstone behind Amari Cooper and DJ Hall, who played four seasons. His 19 career receiving touchdowns are second behind Ridley. A rushing touchdown against Ole Miss in 2016 rounds out his total scores at 20.

Ridley projects to be a first round pick and most likely the first receiver to be selected. Several mock drafts have him going to the Baltimore Ravens at #16.
