The 24th overall selection of the National Football League Draft turned in a strong final season for the Crimson Tide. Arnold totaled a team-high 12 pass breakups and five interceptions, aiding the Tide to a Southeastern Conference Championship and the College Football Playoff. Arnold performed his first backpedalling drill in the NFL and finished by snatching the football.

He will be asked to step in and play right away in Detroit, but Arnold embraces the pressure.

He wants to help the Lions win a Super Bowl while he is there.
