Crimson Tide's Ridley declares for NFL Draft

Alabama CB Minkah Fitzpatrick

Part of the claim obviously comes from the fact that UCF wasn't invited to the College Football Playoff, denying it a shot at the Tide and Bulldogs.

Many couldn't believe their eyes when quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw 41-yard strike to wide receiver DeVonta Smith for the game-winning touchdown against Georgia.

"Thank you to the UNIVERSITY OF ALABAMA for taking great care of me #ROLLTIDE", he tweeted.

A five-star recruit out of Monarch, Ridley had a stellar three-year collegiate career, in which he totaled 224 receptions, 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns. His 1,045 yards and 7 touchdowns on 89 receptions as a freshman played a pivotal role in the Tide locking down their 16th national championship, too.

The big surprise returner was junior running back and two-time 1,000-yard rusher Damien Harris, who reportedly chose to return to Alabama for his senior season. If he enters the draft, he'll finish his college career with 1,512 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns.

Four more members of Alabama's loaded junior class have elected to forgo their final season of eligibility and enter the 2018 NFL Draft. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has him as the No. 1 draft-eligible wideout.

Saban said he looks forward to the day when these players return to watch Alabama from the sidelines, like a big group at Monday night's national title game against Georgia.

Two Alabama defensive backs, Minkah Fitzpatrick and Ronnie Harrison, are expected to make decisions regarding the National Football League within the next few days.

Patrick Nix came off the bench for an injured Stan White and helped lead Auburn to a 22-14 win over Alabama that capped an 11-0 season in 1993.
