Alabama NFL Draft Prospects

All offensive linemen, place kickers, special teams personnel and running backs arrived at Lucas Oils Stadium Tuesday morning, to kick off this year’s NFL Scouting Combine.

Defensive linemen and linebackers will arrive for registration on Thursday; however, former Alabama standouts Reggie Ragland and Jarran Reed will be a little limited during the event. According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, both players may not participate in the bench press due to nagging shoulder injuries.

Ragland played sparingly at the Senior Bowl because of this issue.

The injuries are not serious as Ragland and Reed are both projected to be taken in the first-round of the upcoming NFL Draft. Ragland finished with 103 total tackles (team-high) last season, while Reed chimed in with 57. The duo guided Alabama to a national championship in 2015.
