Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick declares for 2018 NFL Draft

Georgia LB Roquan Smith

As per usual, Alabama has multiple players who could enter the National Football League draft as juniors and be selected.

Wide receiver Calvin Ridley will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, he announced in a statement posted to his Twitter account on Wednesday morning.

A two-time consensus All-American and All-SEC performer, Fitzpatrick finished his career with nine interceptions, including four returned for touchdowns. I got a good grade from my coaches and the NFL.

Leading rusher Damien Harris has made a decision to return for his senior season, according to a report from AL.com, citing unnamed sources.

In three years with the Crimson Tide, Ridley caught 224 passes for 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns, including 63 catches for 967 yards and five touchdowns this season.

Harris rushed for an even 1,000 yards and also scored 11 touchdowns this season. The play call was actually Tagovailoa's favorite in high school.

He reached the end zone 8 times over the 2017 season.

Praise continues to roll in for Tagovailoa after his performance against Georgia.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. rates Ridley as the draft's top receiver and the 10th-best player overall in his big board.

"Preparing for a life after college football, regardless of what your future may hold, can be a scary proposition for many athletes, especially those who DID NOT attend the University of Alabama". After the Crimson Tide's win, UCF put a billboard up in Tuscaloosa challenging Alabama to a home-and-home series.

Alabama men's tennis added athletes Riccardo Roberto and Jeremy Gschwendtner to its roster.
