The University of Alabama will have its Pro Day on Tuesday.

After securing a national championship in 2020, nine prospects for the upcoming NFL Draft will participate in the event.

According to Jim Nagy, the Executive Director of the Reese’s Senior Bowl, Christian Barmore, Deonte Brown, Alex Leatherwood, Thomas Fletcher, Miller Forristall, Mac Jones, Joshua McMillon, Patrick Surtain II, and Carl Tucker are the participants.

As for Landon Dickerson, Najee Harris, Dylan Moses, DeVonta Smith, and Jaylen Waddle, all five are listed as “injured.”

The trio of Dickerson (knee), Waddle (ankle), and Smith (hand) all sustained injuries during the season.

Moses suffered a serious knee injury in 2019 and had a tough time playing through it last year. Harris encountered some bumps and bruises after the season and did not play in the Senior Bowl matchup.

Harris, Smith, and Waddle have nothing to prove by working out at pro day. The game tape says it all for them. One can make the same argument for Dickerson as well.

However, Waddle did state on NFL Network that he will run the 40-yard dash.

Alabama is expected to have at least five players taken in the first round. It will also host a second pro day next week.
