The Miami Hurricanes 2004 draft class featured some big-time household names, and it is currently the record for most players from one team drafted in the first round.
Safety Sean Taylor went to the Redskins, tight end Kellen Winslow II to the Browns, linebacker Jonathan Vilma to the Jets, defensive tackle Vince Wilfork to the Pats, and linebacker D.J. Williams went to the Denver Broncos.
Next year, however, I would expect Alabama to not just beat the record but maybe annihilate the record.
Alabama had 10 total picks in this year’s draft with three — Quinnen Williams, Jonah Williams and Josh Jacobs — in the first round, and some draft websites have 9 Alabama players being drafted in the first round.
I personally would not be surprised if any of these 12 players were taken in the first round. Yes, I said 12 players from Alabama. This Crimson Tide team is stacked.
Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy, Najee Harris, Trevon Diggs, Xavier McKinney, Terrell Lewis, Shyheim Carter, Anfernee Jennings, Raekwon Davis, Henry Ruggs III, Alex Leatherwood, and Dylan Moses could all be players that are selected in round 1.
