Prior to this season, Jones’ teams have included numerous underclassmen in starting roles, beginning with the 2013 National Recruiting Class, many of whom will be eligible for the 2017 NFL Draft.
Alabama has consistently produced NFL prospects throughout Nick Saban’s tenure, which began in 2007. Saturday’s game should feature numerous players who will be selected in next year’s draft and could make an impact in the NFL.
