The Jacksonville Jaguars selected their third consecutive Southeastern Conference prospect of the week in Alabama safety Ronnie Nelson with the No. 93 overall pick.

The four first round selections for the Crimson Tide were the most for any team in the opening round this year and equals the most for Alabama in the first round during Nick Saban's tenure.

Fitzpatrick was selected at No. 11 by the Miami Dolphins with Payne going to the Washington Redskins two picks later at No. 13.

Once again, Alabama competed with itself in the first round of the National Football League draft. Dee Milliner, Chance Warmack and D.J. Fluker were taken in 2013 while C.J. Mosley and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix went in 2014. Ryan Kelly was taken in 2016.

Regarded as one of the top defensive backs in Alabama history, Fitzpatrick was voted a permanent team captain in his junior season. Harrison was equally deadly in coverage as he finished tied for second on the team with three interceptions while tallying four pass breakups.

Harrison earned All-SEC honors from The Associated Press last season after finishing tied with a team-leading 74 tackles.

Harrison started the last two seasons at safety for the Crimson Tide and was one of the defense's most consistent contributors.
