Three Alabama Players Drafted in First Round of NFL Draft

The first round of the NFL Draft has arrived with analysts saying as many as five Alabama players had a chance to be drafted Thursday night. The Crimson Tide would have to ‘settle’ with only three first round draft picks – Dee Milliner, Chance Warmack, and D.J. Fluker. Unfortunately, Alabama wasn’t able to join the Miami Hurricanes as the only team since 1967 to have four players drafted in the first round for three straight years.

Defensive back Dee Milliner was the first Alabama player taken when the New York Jets took him at nine overall. With the pick, Milliner became the 5th first-round draft pick for Alabama in the past three years and the fourth Bama defensive back taken in the first round since 2010.

Alabama wasted no time sending another player to the podium as offensive lineman Chance Warmack gets taken by the Tennessee Titans in the pick following Milliner. With the 10th pick, the Titans drafted its first Crimson Tide player since defensive end Antwan Odom in 2004.

Before the analysts on television could stop talking about Warmack, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell returned to the podium to announce that the San Diego Chargers selected D.J. Fluker at 11 overall. Fluker moved up draft boards quite a few spots over the past couple of weeks leading up to the draft.
