Mock drafts loaded with Alabama first-rounders

It may be far too early to think about any of this, but there appears to be so many Alabama representatives this year, why not sneak a peek. Here are a few samples of credible news sources rating this year’s draft class.

ESPN rated four Tide players among the top 32 seniors or draft-eligible juniors:

  • Trent Richardson (3)
  • Dre Kirkpatrick (12),
  •  Mark Barron (18)
  •  Courtney Upshaw (21)

CBS took it another few steps further. It ranked 750 players including 14 from Alabama. They also did to separate first-round mock drafts found here.

  • Richardson (5)
  • Kirkpatrick (10)
  • Upshaw (23)
  • Dont’a Hightower (27)
  • D.J. Fluker (34)
  • Barron (53)
  • Robert Lester (75)
  • Josh Chapman (79)
  • William Vlachos (151)
  • Marquis Maze (162)
  • DeQuan Menzie (246)
  • Jerrell Harris (287)
  • Alfred McCullough (458)
  • Darius Hanks (744)

Over at Fox, it did a midseason mock draft assigning players to team although the draft order is still pending the end of the season.

  • 10. Richardson (Cleveland Browns)
  • 12. Kirkpatrick (Tampa Bay Bucs)
  • 16. Hightower (Tennessee Titans)
  • 23. Upshaw (Cincinnati Bengals)
  • 24. Fluker (Baltimore Ravens )

Just a little food for thought when thinking about the future of the program.
