Four Alabama Stars Declare for Early Entry into the NFL Draft
Four Alabama players are skipping their final seasons to enter the NFL draft, including All-America left tackle Jonah Williams and Outland Trophy-winning defensive lineman Quinnen Williams.
Those projected first-rounders announced their intentions on Friday, along with versatile tailback Josh Jacobs and tight end Irv Smith Jr.
Jonah Williams and Quinnen Williams were unanimous All-Americans rated as potential Top 10 picks.
Quinnen Williams is a third-year sophomore who won the Outland Trophy as the nation’s top interior lineman on either side of the ball. It was his first season as a starter.
Jacobs and Smith are also listed as potential late first-rounders in at least one mock draft.
Defensive lineman Raekwon Davis and cornerback Trevon Diggs have already announced they’re staying put.
