What should be a Crimson Tide of drafted players is going to include an early entry, and a big one.
According to Joe Schad of ESPN, Alabama running back Derrick Henry is leaving school early to enter the 2016 NFL Draft.
Henry had 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns en route to the Heisman Trophy and a national championship.
While the professional track record of Alabama backs is mixed, Henry’s production this year can’t be questioned.
He apparently got a good recommendation from the league’s advisory committee, which Alabama players agreed to wait to look at until they beat Clemson Monday for the title.
