Alabama's Ridley, Payne, Scarbrough to enter NFL Draft

Alabama's Ridley, Payne, Scarbrough to enter NFL Draft

Earlier in the week, Fitzpatrick told ESPN's Trey Wingo and Mike Golic that it was "pretty clear" which way he was leaning in regards to the National Football League, implying that he would turn pro.

He led Alabama in receiving in each of his three seasons, and finishes his Tide career second in school history in receptions (224), third in receiving yards (2,781) and second in TD receptions (19).

With Ridley off to the NFL, Alabama will turn to a talented crop of freshman receivers, including Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs and DeVonta Smith, who caught the game-winning touchdown against Georgia.

The Tide tailback ran for 1,000 yards and 11 touchdowns this season after rushing for 1,040 yards and two scores his sophomore year in 2016. He caught the game-tying touchdown in the fourth quarter.

CBSSports.com had Harris ranked as the 35th best prospect in the NFL Draft - a projection just outside of the first round - and as the fifth-best running back. All five of those players are juniors, with Barkley, Guice and Jones having announced they are turning pro. Harris is the sixth Alabama running back with consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, joining Johnny Musso, Bobby Humphrey, Shaun Alexander, Kenneth Darby and T.J. Yeldon.

Payne, who was named defensive MVP of both the Sugar Bowl and national championship game, is another player who could go as high as the top half of the first round, especially after he gets to demonstrate his athletic ability to scouts at the NFL Combine next month.

The deadline for underclassmen to declare is Monday. After the Crimson Tide's win, UCF put a billboard up in Tuscaloosa challenging Alabama to a home-and-home series.
