Normally Saban says there are a couple that have not made a decision. Did he say anything about that in his remarks?

re: Alabama press conference Friday
I think that's it. Also Irv couldn't attend because he is attending Hale Hentges' wedding this weekend. Pretty damn good excuse if you ask me.

So does that mean Thompson is coming back?

Appears so.

One thing to consider regarding Thompson and his potential NFL departure is his impending assault charge.

I imagine getting that situation resolved before he signs a NFL contract is a pretty big deal for him and his family. Regardless of his innocence or guilt, he'll probably be hit with a civil lawsuit after the criminal case is settled/reduced/dismissed.

Not having millions of dollars for another year would probably put the incident to rest.

It could also potentially affect his eligibility for next year if he does come back if I'm not mistaken

Charlie Potter just posted a VIP note on D. Thompson. Anything of substance?

He would have announced it in some fashion with the rest of the guys. Unless he is truly torn.

BOL is saying as of late last night he was going pro, but is now dealing with a lot of emotions in regards to his decision.

ETA: It sounds like he is still undecided.

You'd have to think Wilson and Jennings are returning, right?

It seems like the only one that is still up in the air is Thompson.

Four Alabama juniors officially declare for the 2019 NFL Draft (BamaOnLine)


quote:

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Four Alabama underclassmen announced their intentions to forego their senior seasons and enter their names for the 2019 NFL Draft on Friday morning.

Defensive tackle Quinnen Williams, offensive tackle Jonah Williams, running back Josh Jacobs and tight end Irv Smith Jr. all made their decisions to leave a year of eligibility for the NFL public in a press conference.

Quinnen Williams has had a monster first year as a starter, has been virtually unblockable and has been one of the best players in all of college football. A unanimous All-American and the winner of the Outland Trophy as the nation’s best interior lineman, the Birmingham, Ala., native has registered 71 total tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss, 12 quarterback hurries and eight sacks. Some have even mentioned Williams name in the same breath as the No. 1 overall pick in April’s NFL draft.

Jonah Williams has started 44 games at Alabama, or every game of his career, including the last two seasons at left tackle. He was named a unanimous All-American, as well as the recipient of the SEC’s Jacobs Blocking Trophy. The former 5-star recruit is currently projecting as a top-10 pick as CBS Sports’ No. 7 overall NFL draft prospect and top-rated offensive tackle.

Jacobs was Alabama’s do-everything player in 2018, rushing for 640 yards and a team-high 11 touchdowns on 120 carries while catching 20 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns in 2018. The Tulsa, Okla., native was also the Tide’s primary kickoff returner and returned 14 kicks for 148 yards and one score. He is listed as CBS Sports’ fifth-best tailback but has impressed NFL scouts.

Smith has been heavily involved in Alabama’s offense in his breakout year (that’s a trending term in these capsules) as the junior tight end has caught 44 passes for 710 yards and seven touchdowns -- the most for a tight end in school history. Following the 2018 season, Smith is CBS Sports’ third-rated tight end and 66th-best overall prospect for the 2019 draft.

Smith was not at the declaration press conference because of being at Hale Hentges’ wedding.

Am I the only one that won't miss Wilson.


I mean, if we're gonna be confused and out of position at LB can't we do that with a younger guy building for the future.

Or Wilson could improve.

I say it is always good to have as many guys who can play the position as possible and let the best man win.
