The first round of the 2021 NFL draft is in the books and, once again, Alabama football is in the record books tying Miami for the most first-round selections in a single year by the same team with six.
Wide receivers Jaylen Waddle and DeVonta Smith and cornerback Patrick Surtain II all went inside the top 10, while quarterback Mac Jones, offensive lineman Alex Leatherwood and running back Najee Harris were selected 15th, 17th and 24th, respectively.
On the latest episode of the All Things Bama Podcast, host Tyler Martin and staff writer Joey Blackwell recap the the historic night, preview the remaining, and project where the remaining Alabama players like Christian Barmore, Landon Dickerson and Dylan Moses and more could end up.

Which Alabama rookie has the best chance to win Offensive Rookie of the Year? And just how perfect is the situation that Harris has found himself in with the Pittsburgh Steelers?
