Multiple outlets are reporting that Alabama redshirt junior RB Bo Scarbrough will forego his final season of eligibility to enter the 2018 NFL Draft. Ridley (6-foot-1, 190 pounds) may not have the size to be a prototypical No. 1 receiver in an National Football League offense, but everything else about his game suggests that he'll be productive at the next level.

Ridley's 224 career receptions also ranks second in program history behind Amari Cooper's 228, while his 2,781 career receiving yards ranks third behind DJ Hall (2,923) and Cooper (3,463).

Ridley was big in Alabama's 26-23 win over Georgia.

Alabama's annual exodus of underclassmen to the draft began Wednesday with wideout Calvin Ridley, defensive tackle Da'Ron Payne and backup running back Bo Scarbrough all turning pro, but the good news for the defending national champs is that top running back Damien Harris won't be among them.

On Tuesday, Saban said he met with seven potential early entrants to the draft about their decisions.

After this year's 1,000-yard, 11-touchdown season, Harris will reportedly return for one more fall in Tuscaloosa.

Going into the national championship game with Georgia, Harris led the SEC with an average of 8.2 yards per carry.

Scarbrough averaged 5.7 yards per carry over his three years at Alabama.

In those games he caught 15 passes for 82 yards and a touchdown.
