According to a report from, all in-person workouts will be held on pro days.

All interviews and psychological testing will be conducted virtually, and in-personal medical exams will be limited. Eleven players will represent the University of Alabama in working out for pro teams on March 23.

Names such as Christian Barmore, Deonte Brown, Landon Dickerson, Thomas Fletcher, Najee Harris, Mac Jones, Alex Leatherwood, Dylan Moses, DeVonta Smith, Patrick Surtain II, and Jaylen Waddle look to leave a strong impression. Fans of the Crimson Tide are excited to see Waddle, Surtain, Smith, and Harris dominate in the 40-yard dash.

A strong performance will lock Dickerson into being a day one pick (first round), while Leatherwood expects to show evaluators that he is one of the best offensive tackles in the class.

Dickerson, Jones, Harris, Smith, Leatherwood, and Surtain all earned All-American honors for their efforts in 2020.

Smith became the third player — first wide receiver — in school history to win the Heisman Memorial Trophy. Smith, Waddle, Harris, Jones, Surtain, and Barmore all project as first-round picks.
