Henry To'oTo'o - MLB - Texans - 61 tackles and a forced fumble

The linebacker was drafted by Houston teaming up with Alabama Football teammates Will Anderson Jr. and Christian Harris. To'oto'o recorded 61 tackles and a forced fumble on the season for the Texans. He's slowly becoming a key piece of the Texans team but, like Anderson injuries slowed his rookie season. The 2024 season will provide and opportunity for To'oTo'o and Harris to become the starting duo at linebacker with both impressing down the stretch of the 2023 season.

DeMarcco Hellams - Safety - Falcons - 40 tackles

Hellams despite being a late draft selection has blossomed into a great defender for the Falcons like he did for the Alabama Football team. Hellams saw his snap count grow down the stretch and recorded 40 tackles on the season. Playing alongside All-Pro safety Jessie Bates will be crucial for helping Hellams develop as his career is just getting started. New Falcons head coach Raheem Morris is known for his impressive defenses providing Hellams an opportunity to take a massive step in year two.

Alabama Football: Who's next?

The Alabama Football team will add plenty of potential stars again in this year's upcoming draft class. Right Tackle JC Latham has the potential to become a top-ten pick in this year's draft becoming another star tackle to come out of Alabama. Edge Rushers Dallas Turner and Chris Braswell will likely both become first-round picks with the potential to record double-digit sacks in year one in the NFL. Cornerbacks Terrion Arnold and Kool-Aid McKinstry will look to provide instant impacts as Patrick Surtain II did in his rookie season. There will also be players selected on day two of the draft in Will Reichard, Jermain Burton, and Jase McClellan who will look to provide impacts from day one in the NFL.
