Is Christopher Allen the third veteran Alabama player to declare for the NFL Draft?

The odds are trending that way. He joined Priority Sports and Entertainment, which is a full-service sports agency.

Priority Sports announced the news Wednesday on Allen joining the brand. He had his fifth season at Alabama stolen from him because of a foot injury in the 2021 season opener versus Miami. Allen turned in a dominant year in 2020 with 41 tackles, 13 tackles for loss (team-high), six sacks, five quarterback hurries, and two forced fumbles. He helped the Crimson Tide to an undefeated national championship season. Allen wanted a lot for the 2021 campaign, but he was robbed of it. He could return to the Crimson Tide for another year, but Allen joining an agency hints at him more than likely declaring for the NFL Draft.

We will continue to keep our eyes on this move as it continues to develop.

If Allen goes pro, Crimson Tide fans will wish him well.
