Terrion Arnold is the definition of hard work and accepting a position change paying off in football.

A native of Tallahassee, Fla., Arnold came to the University of Alabama as a five-star in the 2021 signing class as a safety.

He was transitioned to cornerback in 2022, but Arnold endured the growing pains. He became one of the best boundary defenders in the Southeastern Conference last season, totaling a team-high 12 pass breakups and five interceptions for an SEC Championship defense for the Crimson Tide. Arnold’s performance guided the Tide to the College Football Playoff and positioned himself to be a top prospect for the NFL Draft. Media pundits see him as arguably the best corner in the draft and a first-round selection. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports Arnold visited the Arizona Cardinals and Jacksonville Jaguars this week. 

Arizona has two first-round picks at Nos. 4 and 27. Jacksonville has the 17th overall pick of the first round.

Arnold clocked a 4.51 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine, but he improved his time at Alabama’s Pro Day.

He is expected to visit nearly 10 team in his draft process. Alabama fans look forward to seeing who takes Arnold.
