Heard about ESPN’s “all-time Alabama” draft? If you haven’t seen it yet, click here.
Like most other stuff of this type, it’s more to generate discussion than as an exercise in being realistic. For example:
* First overall pick, Lee Roy Jordan. No offense to Mr. Jordan, but there’s few better ever than Derrick Thomas, and Cornelius Bennett may not be that far behind him.
* Trent Richardson as the 38th overall pick? Please.
* And I’d pick a guy named Paul Bryant to coach the team, but probably not with the 60th pick as an end.
Like I said, this is good for some off-season discussion and not much else, but it does give you an idea of the incredibly talented players that have played for the Tide.
