ROLL TIDE: Several players from Alabama have the chance to hear their names in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, including DT JONATHAN ALLEN, LB REUBEN FOSTER, TE O.J. HOWARD and T CAM ROBINSON.
If Alabama has a player selected in the first round of the 2017 NFL Draft, the Crimson Tide will tie Florida (1983-91) for the second-longest consecutive streak of players drafted in the first round since the advent of the common draft in 1967. Alabama currently has eight consecutive drafts with at least one first-round pick.
Miami (1995-2008) holds the longest streak with 14 consecutive drafts having at least one player selected in the first round.
The longest streak of consecutive seasons with a first-round pick (since 1967):
