I know it might seem a little abnormal to see only one player from the Crimson Tide selected so far, but the Tide will continue to roll soon. We could definitely see more in the Top 10 as things get closer to 2021, but as of right now, things are good where they are.

Picks 13-24

13.) Detroit Lions- Jamie Newman, QB, UGA

The lions are doing everything they can to continue with Matthew Stafford as their quarterback, but like Matt Ryan, his days are numbered. Newman brings size, arm strength, and will do well in Detroit.

14.) Pittsburgh Steelers- Patrick Surtain II, CB, Alabama

Miami made a huge mistake by trading Minkah Fitzpatrick to the Steelers, all while helping the Steelers show how incredible his playmaking skills are. Put Surtain on the other side of Steven Nelson, and this secondary gets even better.

15.) New England Patriots- DeVonta Smith, WR, Alabama

The Patriots have not necessarily figured out their quarterback situation yet, but one thing is for sure–they need wide receiver help. Smith will be a pro bowler once he adds weight to his frame.

16.) Chicago Bears- Shaun Wade, CB, Ohio State

Shaun Wade is one heck of a defensive back and will make an immediate impact for the Bears. Buster Skrine is a solid corner, but Wade is on another level.

17.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers- Tyson Campbell, CB, Georgia

Are the Tampa Bay Bucs looking to contend right now with the signing of Tom Brady? If they are, their defense needs work, especially at cornerback. Campbell is a great corner who plays to his strengths. Day 1 guy.

18.) Buffalo Bills- Sam Cosmi, OT, Texas

At nearly 6’7, 315 pounds, Cosmi is the perfect protector for Josh Allen and company. The Bills are slowly gathering the pieces to compete with this offense.

19.) Miami Dolphins- Jaylen Waddle, WR, Alabama

Now that the Miami Dolphins have a solid line, a future quarterback, and a solid dynamic running back, the Dolphins snag one of the best wide receivers in the country in Jaylen Waddle. Tua to Jaylen would be heard around the world for years to come if all works out. Waddle really shows his speed, quick reaction, and a burst of agility at receiver, as well as a return specialist. This is a great pick.

20.) Indianapolis Colts- Jay Tufele, DT, USC

With the Colts at the helm of Phillip Rivers on offense, someone needs to take over on the defense. Tufele comes in and grounds the defense at 307 pounds, which automatically helps them and their run defense, where the Colts were ranked No. 18 last season.

21.) Minnesota Vikings- Richard LeCounte, S, Georgia

The Vikings through people for a whirl by drafting wide receiver Justin Jefferson, so who knows what the Vikings will do next year. It cannot hurt having a ball hawk like LeCounte in your secondary.

22.) Dallas Cowboys- Dylan Moses, LB, Alabama

The Cowboys got an absolute steal with CeeDee Lamb at No.17 so I will continue the lucky trend for the Cowboys. Once again, another team needs to focus on compiling the same type of weaponry on defense. The All-American type, Crimson Tide linebacker is a steal at No. 22, where he will succeed for years to come.

23.) Philadephia Eagles- Travis Etienne, RB, Clemson

Things were definitely interesting for the Eagles in the 2020 NFL Draft, as they shocked the world, by drafting Oklahoma quarterback Jalen Hurts in the 2nd round although they just signed Carson Wentz to a $100 million dollar contract. How cool would it be to see a package with Jalen Hurts, Travis Etienne, and Deshaun Jackson?

24.) Seattle Seahawks- Trey Smith, OG, Tennessee

Wow at the number of players who have been injured on the offensive line for the Seahawks. Nothing helps much more than a day 1 ready guard who should be good to play for at least 10 or so years.

We have seen the five Crimson Tide players selected so far, and there are still several picks to go. Is it possible we could see a record for the Tide?
