Here is to hoping that this is not the dominoes Alabama football was referring to.

As expected, Alabama junior Jedrick Wills Jr. has announced via Twitter his intentions to forgo his senior season to enter the NFL Draft.

Wills was a part of the Crimson Tide’s top ranked recruiting class in 2017 as a high 4-star ranked No. 34 overall player in the nation. The Lexington, KY native saw action in 11 games in his first season at the Capstone, regularly used in goal line situations. His sophomore season, he graduated to starter manning right tackle. He would resume that role in 2019 protection Tua Tagovailoa’s blind side and tallied 28 career starts, including 27 straight.

Wills is expected to be one of the first offensive linemen drafted in this spring’s draft with a possibility of sliding into the first round. At worst, he will not languish past round 2.

UPDATE

Also going pro is All-American wide receiver Jerry Jeudy. This should be a surprise to nobody.

The true junior from Deerfield Beach, FL finishes his three year Alabama career with 2,742 receiving yards on 159 receptions and 26 touchdowns. He has potential to be a top ten pick in the upcoming draft. The Redskins at No. 2 and the Cardinals at No. 8 both have needs at the position.
