Alabama football has produced 39 first-round NFL Draft picks in the Nick Saban era since 2009.
Two more will be added Thursday in Evan Neal and Jameson Williams as projected first-rounders. Neal will be called within the first five selections, while Williams may be a late first-rounder. If not for a knee injury in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game, he would have been a top-15 pick. Williams is the best receiver in the class for elite speed, acceleration, explosive plays, versatility, and creating instant offense. He needed one season with the Crimson Tide and totaled 79 catches for 1,572 yards with 15 touchdowns. Williams put together one of the best single-season performances in school history.
His recovery process has been phenomenal as Williams shows his mobility, footwork, agility, and strength days before the draft. Williams has been training with Rocky Arceneaux of Alliance Sports and is getting himself ready to become a star in the pros.

Arceneaux wants to make sure all draft pundits understand that Williams is the best receiver prospect in this class. The Philadelphia Eagles, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Kansas City Chiefs, and Green Bay Packers could use Williams.
Kansas City, New Orleans, and Green Bay have multiple first-round picks.
We will see what happens with Williams on Thursday in Las Vegas.
