NFL Mock Draft: No. 13 Alabama picks No. 2 QB and No. 7 OL in 2019
Bleacher report has selected the Crimson Tide to be the No. 1 pick in the 2019 NFL draft.
The Tide is expected to pick No. 14 with a fourth-round pick and No 6 in the seventh round.
It’s the first time Alabama has been in the top two since 2009.
The Crimson Tide’s draft class is loaded with talent and will likely be one of the most exciting in the SEC in the coming years.
Alabama is the only team that has two first-round picks, and its next four first- and second-round selections are all first- or second-rounder.
The Crimson Tide is also expected to select LSU’s Jadeveon Clowney and Tennessee’s Joshua Dobbs.
Alabama has been ranked as one of college football’s most exciting teams this season, and the Crimson Beets are coming off a 24-7 victory over No. 16 Ole Miss on Saturday night.
The game was a game of a lifetime in the biggest game of the college football season.
The win gave Alabama a 10-0 record in SEC play and gave coach Nick Saban his first win in the program’s 104-year history.
Alabama was one of two undefeated teams entering the season, the other being Florida State.
Florida State is still ranked as the No, 2 team in the nation, but its win against Alabama was the only one Alabama needed.
The Tide will be playing its first game against an opponent from a major conference in the fall.
Alabama will face Alabama A&M, No. 18 LSU and No, 3 Auburn.
The matchup was originally scheduled for the third weekend in October, but the dates were pushed back to March 1.
The 2018 SEC championship game between the Crimson and Tigers will be played in College Station, Texas.
This year, the Crimson is expected a No. 5 seed and the Tigers a No, 5 seed.
Alabama and LSU are both undefeated in the regular season and will play the winner of Alabama-Alabama State on Saturday in College City.
