It is NFL Draft Day and observers should get used to hearing the phrase “From the University of Alabama...” Not only has Nick Saban gone on a historic on-field run with his Crimson Tide teams; He has also been churning out NFL draftees at an incredible rate.

22 Tide players have been selected in the first round of the draft since no Alabama player was selected in the April 2008 Draft.

65 total Bama players have been drafted from 2009 to 2017.

10 selected last season alone.

4 first rounders from 2017.

5 potential first rounders for 2018:

  • DB Minkah Fitzpatrick
  • WR Calvin Ridley
  • DL Da’Ron Payne
  • LB Rashaan Evans
  • DB Ronnie Harrison

15 Alabama players who could be chosen:

  • DB Minkah Fitzpatrick
  • WR Calvin Ridley
  • DL Da’Ron Payne
  • LB Rashaan Evans
  • DB Ronnie Harrison
  • DB Tony Brown
  • DB Anthony Averett
  • DB Levi Wallace
  • RB Bo Scarbrough
  • LB Shaun Dion Hamilton
  • DL Da’Shawn Hand
  • P JK Scott
  • OL Bradley Bozeman
  • DL Josh Frazier

2018 NFL Draft Schedule:

  • First round, Thursday at 7pm CT.
  • Second and third rounds, Friday at 6pm CT.
  • Fourth through seventh, Saturday at 11am CT.

Location: AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas

TV: ESPN/ABC/ESPN2, Fox and NFL Network - my recommendation is NFL Network who will have less commercials.
