ATLFalcon36 Posted January 14, 2016 Share Posted January 14, 2016 I was having a conversation about college "factories" that pump out players at a high rate at one position group that's really strong (think Georgia DEs, Miami TEs/Safeties and my point Alabama LBs)Alabama has put out All-Pro/Pro-Bowl LBS (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Alabama_Crimson_Tide_players_in_the_NFL_draft) in the Top 2 rounds pretty much dating back to 1987 with Cornelius Bennett. The list is impressive: Derrick Thomas, DeMeco Ryans, Rolando McClain, Courtney Upshaw, CJ Mosley, Dont'a Hightower and so on...My point is we have potentially two of those Top 2 projected prospects in the coming draft and next years in Reggie Ragland (though I see him as a Curtis Lofton sorta 2 down run stuffing MLB) and Reuben Foster (is going to be a beast) in one of the next two drafts.I think we HAVE to target them if we have a significant LB need which we do. We haven't had a great LB since Tuggle, and a decent one in Brooking. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
