The NFL Draft opens up Thursday night as the First Round of the Draft opens up with day two following on Friday, and the Draft concluding on Saturday. Nick Saban will put the final touches on an incredible NFL Draft resume with 123 players drafted while at Alabama with 44 going in the first round. Thursday Night will see Nick Saban add a few more first-round picks to his resume while a few other players will add to his 123 players drafted. Here is where we see the Alabama NFL Draft entrees ending up.

Dallas Turner - Atlanta Falcons - 8th Overall

The off-season for the Atlanta Falcons was focused on upgrading the offense as the team signed Kirk Cousins and acquired Rondale Moore. The team however needs a severe upgrade to its pass rush group after recording just 42 sacks with its two top pass rushers leaving this off-season in free agency.

Here the Atlanta Falcons get one of the top pass rushers in the draft class landing Dallas Turner who's coming off of a ten-sack season. Turner possesses rare explosiveness at the edge position while using his speed to generate power. Turner will need to improve his secondary moves at the NFL level but, he'll instantly give the Falcons' defense a high-caliber rusher.

Terrion Arnold - Las Vegas Raiders - 13th Overall

The Las Vegas Raiders are embracing a change in mentality by hiring the defensive-minded coach Antonio Pierce. The team furthered its defensive push by landing Christian Wilkins to bolster a dominant front seven. The area where the Raiders defense needs to improve is in the secondary as the team has no clear top cornerback.

Terrion Arnold flew up the draft boards in 2023 with a dominant season after a disappointing 2022 campaign. What excites NFL Scouts about Arnold the most is his prototypical frame while showing tons of potential to develop. Arnold has shown the ability to be a solid cornerback in man-coverage from day one in the NFL while he continues to improve in zone.

JC Latham - New Orleans Saints - 14th Overall

The New Orleans Saints fell just short of the NFL playoffs losing out to the Buccaneers on a tiebreaker. The Saints will certainly need to draft an offensive tackle as right tackle Ryan Ramczyk's future is uncertain as he deals with knee cartilage defects.

Here the Saints land one of the top tackles in the draft and one with experience playing on the right side in JC Latham. Latham immediately gives the Saints a mauler in the run game opening up holes for Alvin Kamara and Jamaal Williams. The Saints also get an incredible pass protector in Latham who's footwork and power standout for a college prospect.
