As Alabama’s season is over, Crimson Tide’s drifting qualifying players will soon announce they will turn professional or in certain situations – returning to Tide for another season.
Here are some remarks about the individuals who have partial draft rights based on the information the source has shared with AL.com:
– The expectation is that in the end, four insiders will opt out of the NFL: Cornerback Patrick Surtain, quarterback Mac Jones, wide receiver Jaylen Waddle and defensive lineman Christian Barmore. It̵7;s possible that all four might end up in the first draft.
– Christopher Allen, a junior outside Redshirt, second team All-SEC qualifier, who led the meeting with 13 tackles for a loss, is expected to return to school instead. NFL scouts see Day 2 NFL draft pick.
– The belief is that Josh Jobe, the alternate junior cornerback of Day 2, is likely to stay at Alabama instead of leaving the NFL.
– Brian Robinson, who ran 483 yards as a backer for Najee Harris running back this season, is expected to be one of the Crimson Tide seniors returning to school for another season compared to a move to the NFL.
