Alabama WR Calvin Ridley entering NFL Draft

Damien Harris, the star running back who played at Madison Southern High School, will return for his senior season at the University of Alabama and forego entering the 2018 NFL Draft.

Harris is one of four Power 5 players in college football to have multiple runs of 70 years in 2017.

Now that he has earned two titles in three seasons with Alabama, wide receiver Calvin Ridley is ready to take the next step in his career.

Crimson Tide wide receiver Calvin Ridley announced his intentions to enter the 2018 National Football League draft Wednesday afternoon.

Ridley's 224 career receptions also ranks second in program history behind only Amari Cooper's 228, while his 2,781 career receiving yards ranks third in program history behind DJ Hall (2,923) and Cooper (3,463).

In those games he caught 15 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.

With Ridley off to the NFL, Alabama will turn to a talented crop of freshman receivers, including Jerry Jeudy, Henry Ruggs and DeVonta Smith, who caught the game-winning touchdown against Georgia. Coach Saban, thank you for building winning football teams by turning good players into great ones, and talented boys into successful men with a objective. At 6-1, 190 pounds, he is viewed by some as the top wide receiver prospect in the draft and a possible first-round pick.
