Alabama Football sent three more players to the NFL on day two of the 2024 Draft.

Cornerback Kool-Aid McKinstry (no. 41 overall to the New Orleans Saints) and edge rusher Chris Braswell (no. 57 overall to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers) went off the board in the second round, followed by wide receiver Jermaine Burton (no. 80 overall to the Cincinnati Bengals) in the third.

After offensive tackle JC Latham, edge rusher Dallas Turner, and cornerback Terrion Arnold became first-round picks on Thursday night, Friday’s selections brought the Crimson Tide total to six draftees. 

How many Alabama Football players will be selected on the third and final day of the 2024 NFL Draft?

Defensive lineman Justin Eboigbe should expect to get his name called on Saturday. ESPN lists Eboigbe as the 65th-best available player and the fifth-best available defensive tackle. Eboigbe was extremely disruptive in his final year in Tuscaloosa, racking up 64 tackles, 11.5 tackles for loss, and 7.0 sacks from the interior defensive line. His production should’ve made him a much higher pick, but Eboigbe has an injury history and was likely docked significantly for medical concerns. 

Kicker Will Reichard, college football’s all-time leading scorer, should also be drafted on Saturday. He was incredibly consistent over his five-year career at Alabama and is considered the 2nd-best available kicker on ESPN’s draft board. 

According to our pre-draft projections, Eboigbe and Reichard would be the last two Crimson Tide standouts to come off the board in this year’s draft. However, steady running back Jase McClellan and veteran safety Jaylen Key also received invites to the NFL Draft Combine and could be selected. Linebacker Trezmen Marshall and interior offensive lineman Darrian Dalcourt are also draft hopefuls heading into day three. 

All of these players had promising moments at Alabama and will provide some value to an NFL franchise. Look for some of those who go undrafted to quickly sign free agent deals with NFL teams.
