Alabama Players in the National Football League Draft

          The National Football League is an annual event in which the National Football League (NFL) teams select eligible college football players. The teams draft in reverse order relative to their record the previous season. The last place team selects first while the Super Bowl winner selects last.

          In the early years players were drafted more on hearsay and print media than any other reason. All that has changed in recent years as every NFL team will put forth great effort to evaluate the players.

          Alabama high school football players have represented the state well over the years with players selected in almost every draft. The state has produced four overall number one selections and many more first round selections.
