Crimson Tide's Ridley declares for NFL Draft

Crimson Tide's Ridley declares for NFL Draft

Ridley, who is rated as the top draft-eligible receiver by ESPN NFL draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr., announced Wednesday on Twitter that he will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL draft. He had 63 catches for 967 yards while no other wide receiver caught more than 14 balls. Ridley (6-foot-1, 190 pounds) may not have the size to be a prototypical No. 1 receiver in an National Football League offense, but everything else about his game suggests that he'll be productive at the next level.

Payne had an interception against Clemson and registered six tackles in the come-from-behind win over Georgia that secured the school's fifth national title in nine seasons.

Plus, Harris ran for 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017 after gaining 1,040 yards and two scores in 2016.

With Ridley off to the NFL, Alabama will turn to a talented crop of freshman, including Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs and DeVonta Smith, who caught the game-winning touchdown against Georgia.

Alabama awaits official decisions from defensive backs Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ronnie Harrison, though Fitzpatrick being a projected top-10 pick is likely to declare. He also eclipsed the 1,000-yard mark as a sophomore.
