I think that all of those Alabama players will get drafted about 1/2 round
(projected 1st round)
Position versatile, very intelligent, great instincts and work ethic. Leader.
Average size and strength and very average athleticism. Arm length rumored to be too short to project to OT in the NFL.
: (projected top 20)
Dominant straight ahead run blocker.
Has had some trouble in pass protection when facing quick DLinemen. I don't know if he is quick enough to fit in a Zone Blocking Scheme like Callahan wants to implement.
: (2nd round)
Very big and strong. Can dominate in straight ahead run blocking.
Very slow feet. I don't see him playing OT in the NFL unless he drops about 10 to 15 lbs.
