The NFL Draft is a yearly showcase of the massive amount of talent that the Alabama Football program sends to the NFL. The Draft serves as a celebration for the players and a recruiting tool for the coaching staff. The Crimson Tide have ten players headed to the draft while five have a chance of landing in the first round. Fit is important for the success of the players long term and here are the best landing spots for all ten of the potential draftees:

Terrion Arnold - Las Vegas Raiders

The Las Vegas Raiders are going all in on defense signing Christian Wilkins to form a dominant front with Maxx Crosby. The Raiders hired former linebacker Antonio Pierce as the team's head coach further going all-in on defense. One of the team's biggest needs is cornerback making Terrion Arnold a likely pick.

The star cornerback will get to start right away in the NFL getting valuable experience against the opposing team's top cornerbacks. Defensive Coordinator Patrick Graham is known for bringing exotic pressures pairing that with a dominant front will allow for less time in coverage for Arnold. Coaching Terrion will be six-year NFL veteran Ricky Manning who was an assistant with the Jets helping develop cornerbacks Sauce Gardner and DJ Reed.

Kool-Aid McKinstry - Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles will continue to be a Super Bowl contender thanks to great draft classes and supplementing the roster in Free Agency. The Eagles' defense fell apart in the second half of last season due to issues in their secondary as James Bradberry began to show his age. The Eagles could add a great cornerback opposite of Darius Slay.

The Eagles' vicious pass rush will allow for McKinstry to spend less time covering opposing receivers. In the NFC East, the Eagles will face the Commanders and Giants who will have either rookie quarterbacks or quarterbacks who aren't well-regarded. The Division opponents only have two top-caliber receivers in Ceedee Lamb and Terry McLaurin whom Darius Slay will travel with allowing McKinstry a soft landing into the NFL.
