Alabama held a press conference on Friday for running back Josh Jacobs, offensive lineman Jonah Williams, and defensive lineman Quinnen Williams to all announce that they will enter the 2019 NFL Draft.

Not in attendance at the press conference was tight end Irv Smith Jr. who also announced on Friday that he will enter the NFL Draft via Twitter. Per ProFootballTalk:
quote:

Jonah Williams is considered one of the top offensive linemen prospects in this year’s draft class while Quinnen Williams is one of several defensive linemen expected to come off the board in the first handful of selections. The Scouting Combine, other workouts and meetings with teams will determine exactly how that shakes out, but neither player should be waiting long to hear his name.

Smith and Jacobs shouldn’t be too far behind them as they also rank near the top of their position groups, although Jacobs may not be the first Alabama back off the board with Damien Harris also in this year’s draft pool.

Actually Bama probably leads the SEC in having NFL ready players come back for their senior season. LSU was by far the most hurt by this trend and we are finally seeing that turn. No matter what you think, Bama wouldn't be Bama without all those players coming back. I think people will finally see how much having these NFL ready juniors coming back help the program. We should be much more improved and veteran team next season. I hope the media down plays it also. I don't mind that 14th rank they gave us now.

I love Irv Smith Sr. as a Saints fan but his kid wants to quote Ralph Waldo Emerson about going where there is no path and leaving a trail?? Going to Alabama to stand in line for a Championship is blazing a new trail? And your parents sacrificed for you to follow your dream? What a drama queen!

I guess we should have put up billboards to strong arm them into staying.

I can't believe more didn't declare. Saban once again keeps his Juniors.

Quinnen Williams ate our lunch for 60 minutes. I am fully supporting his NFL draft declaration.

Early departures have plagued LSU in past seasons. Now it's Bama's turn. Can't say I'm surprised. Can't say this makes me sad either. Geaux Tigers!

Now it's Bama's turn? Just when I think lswho fans can't get more clueless this corndog comes along and proves they can! Bama has had as many early departures as any team in the country and likely even more! You must be drunk again...

Bryantboyz, you are a dumb frick. See what the so called drunk knew that you didn't: Over the past six years, 32 non-seniors at LSU declared for the draft. That is eight more than the next closest team, Florida State (24). Florida is next at 23 before a jumble of programs round out the top 10: Alabama, Clemson and OhioState (20 each), Southern California (19), Stanford and Notre Dame (15 each) and UCLA (14).

Bryantboyz You are the typical Sabama fan-stupid. It never hurts to check facts before opening mouth and allowing dumb things to come out. But, that's just the way Sabama fans are-dumbasses. Stupid moron. LOL LOL LOL

Admirable to take a cut in pay to pursue an NFL dream.

NFL will surely need to view the quit in these guys when the stage gets big

If you think these guys quit during the championship game, you weren't watching.

What would they say about LSU players who were shut out 29-0 at home?
