Nick Saban has lost several cornerbacks in the last few years to the NFL Draft and transfer portal for Alabama.

The Crimson Tide lost Brandon Turnage, Jeffery “Scooby” Carter, Marcus Banks, Ronald Williams Jr., Kadarius Calloway, Jahquez Robinson, Tre’Quon Fegans, and Khyree Jackson to other schools. Eli Ricks chose to declare for the NFL Draft, despite not having much game experience for the Tide. He went undrafted, but Ricks signed a free agent deal for the Philadelphia Eagles.

Kool-Aid McKinstry returns as Alabama’s most experienced cornerback. He finished last season with 35 total tackles, two stops for loss, a sack, 15 pass breakups (team-high), and an interception. The Birmingham (Ala.) native came to the Crimson Tide in 2021 as a five-star athlete and earned a spot on multiple All-American teams. A dominant showing from him in the fall would secure a top 10 draft status for him. McKinstry had two tackles and two breakups in the spring game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

A breakdown is below about what we learned about the cornerbacks from Alabama’s A-Day.
