Alabama's football program has a bunch of NFL talent every season. This year's team might be special in that department, though.

One NFL insider has revealed how many of the Crimson Tide's players have a real chance at getting picked in the 2019 NFL Draft.

The number: 17.

"I asked an NFL personnel exec to send me the names of the draft eligible, draftable prospects to watch at Alabama. He sent me 17 names. Going to be a busy few days watching all these dudes," NFL analyst Daniel Jeremiah tweeted.

Ohio State set the NFL Draft record for most players taken in one draft with 14 in 2004.

It's early, but it looks like Alabama could seriously challenge that record come spring 2019.
