This weekend, we will see if Tide has any talent on their current roster who can make it to the big leagues as well. If you have been watching the Tide, you know about offensive lines, running backs, quarterbacks and much more. So, let’s take a look at some upcoming NFL Draft prospects for the Alabama football program. First, let’s start with the offensive line. Tackle Chance Warmack, end Bradley Bozeman and center Hakeem Smith could be in line for a starting role at guard or center.
The next Alabama player on the NFL chopping block is wide receiver Trevard Lindley. The speedy receiver was one of the best wide receivers in college football last season and he looks like he has what it takes to start right away at the NFL level. He has been invited to the Combine and it would not be surprising to see him listed as a top ten pick in the draft.
Running back Kenyan Johnson is another player whose stock has been rising lately. Coach Tide fans were skeptical when he signed with the New York Giants, but he impressed them all at the Combine. Expect to see a lot of Kenyan, honorary throwback passes on Saturday as the Crimson Tide prepare for their season opener against the Houston Texans. Linebackers Clayith Dickson and Davaris Johnson are also on the bubble of the NFL draft and could be on the practice squad or the active rosters. If they impress at the Combine, they could be in line for a medical release by the NFL once the season opens.
Tre Randrell And Calvin Johnson
Running back depth chart | players | depth chart | likely | week} Wide receiver is also an area that has plenty of talent in Tuscaloosa. LSU’s Tre Randell should earn a starter role opposite Calvin Johnson this season. Both Calvin and Randell have experience playing in the SEC and have drawn comparisons to Favre and even Michael Vick. Both are under contract for next year and both could be cut before the start of the 2021 season. Expect both to go on to be first team All-SEC second teamers.
Cornerbacks are also in good supply and could be in demand on Saturday. The top four prospects in the draft, LSU’s Darques Broxton, Florida’s Travis Joseph, Oklahoma’s Travis Pittman and USC’s Dexter Smith are expected to earn top billing on Saturday night. I have Florida’s Chad Coughlin in the top five and is also expected to be on the field on Saturday. Cornerback is deep and loaded with talented former players that should command a lot of passing attention from the Alabama offense. LSU’s Matt Moore, Oklahoma’s Toddrickerman and USC’s Chad Kelly are also expected to contribute to the passing attack on Saturday night. Each of these teams have star caliber defensive players but the overall depth of the secondary is just not what it used to be.
One of the more interesting battles to watch on Saturday night is at wide receiver. There are several players who are better at catching the football than Alshon Jeffery. Taj Williams and freshman Braxton Kelley are two possibilities who could steal some passes on Saturday night. It will be interesting to see which players will make their NFL debut this year. Expect some big plays on Saturday night as the Tide try to move past their rivals.
