The Alabama Crimson Tide are no stranger to sending talent to the NFL draft. No team has produced more NFL talent over the past 10 years since Nick Saban took over the program.
The Tide roll out proven starters at the NFL level especially on the defensive side of the ball. However, Alabama produces talent on the offensive side of the ball as well, with players like Julio Jones, O.J. Howard and Derrick Henry finding success in the NFL.
Now the next top offensive talent to come from Alabama has made his NFL decision.
Irv Smith Jr. announced he plans to enter the NFL.

Smith Jr. is the son of former Notre Dame star and longtime NFL tight end Irv Smith, who was a first-round pick in the 1993 NFL Draft. Smith’s uncle, Edward Smith, also played at the NFL level.
Now, his son projects as a first-round pick and potential star at the professional level.
