Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick Taken 11th Overall by the Miami Dolphins

Alabama DB Minkah Fitzpatrick Taken 11th Overall by the Miami Dolphins

Alabama football has now produced at least one first round pick in 10 straight drafts, joining the Miami Hurricanes as the only two programs to ever accomplish that feat. The Hurricanes, which now hold the record for most first-round picks over any 10-year period at 27, also had 14 straight years (1995-2008) with at least one first round selection. The versatile defender was announced as a safety but saw snaps there, at CB and in LB roles in college. He caught just 15 passes for 244 yards, but Smythe made clutch grabs and proved himself to be a quality route runner and a productive blocker in the run game.

Former University of New Mexico kicker Jason Sanders was taken by the Miami Dolphins in the seventh round, making him the first Lobo drafted in eight years. Payne ended up starting 31 games in the middle of Alabama's defensive line over his three-year collegiate career. 42 and 73 overall picks in the second and third rounds, and they still have plenty of needs.




The do-it-all defensive back played at multiple spots in Alabama's secondary previous year, finishing with 60 tackles, eight for a loss, with 1.5 sacks, 3 quarterback hurries, eight pass breakups and an interception.

The All-Big Ten tight end caught 105 passes the last two seasons and Gesicki led the Lions in receptions (57) last season, scoring nine touchdowns.
