TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- More than 300 players will be in Indianapolis for the NFL combine this week at Lucas Oil Stadium, and Alabama will be well represented.
The Crimson Tide has nine former players who'll be in attendance with many of whom could go in the first round of this year's NFL draft.
According to CBSSports.com, Alabama could have as many as three players taken in the first round (Reggie Ragland, A'Shawn Robinson and Jarran Reed) with an outside chance at four (Ryan Kelly).
Here is a look at each of the players from Alabama who are scheduled to be at the combine:
CBSSports.com lists Robinson as the Tide's highest-rated propsect, giving him a top-10 grade. He ranks as the best defensive tackle prospect in this class.
Robinson started all 15 games as a junior in 2015, finishing with 46 tackles, 7.5 tackles for loss and 3.5 sacks to earn First Team All-SEC honors.
During his three years in Tuscaloosa, Robinson played every position along the defensive line and played them well, even taking on double teams from opponents.
Listed at 6-foot-3, 312
pounds, the Fort Worth, Texas native has the power and speed to start for a long time in the NFL.
Ragland was the bell cow of the Tide's vaunted 2015 defense. He led the Tide with 102 total tackles on his way to winning SEC Defensive Player of the Year.
According to CBSSports.com, Ragland is the best player at his position and considered to be a top-20 overall prospect in this year's draft class.
Ragland was an every down linebacker in college, often shifting to a pass rushing role in third-down situations. The one question about Ragland as he heads toward the next level is how he'll hold up in pass coverage against tight ends and running backs. He possesses the lateral quickness and foot speed to be a star in the NFL.
Like Robinson and Ragland, Reed is a projected first round pick, according to CBSSports.com. He's listed as the No. 21 overall prospect and the fourth-best defensive tackle.
The North Carolina native was a two-year starter at Alabama after transferring in from East Mississippi Community College.
Reed started 28 of the 29 games during his time with the Tide, finishing his career with 112 tackles including 11 tackles for loss and two sacks.
Reed has the ability to play in both a 3-4 defensive front as a nose guard or a defensive end, or in a 4-3 front as a defensive tackle.
Kelly is widely regarded as the best center prospect in this class. A three-year starter at Alabama, Kelly led the Tide's offense for much of his career while also helping put other young or inexperienced linemen in the right position.
Kelly started 35 career games, culminating with a national championship victory. He took home the Rimington Award (nation's best center) this past season.
CBSSports.com has Kelly projected to go in the first or second round of the draft.
Since 2011, four Alabama running backs have been drafted in the first two rounds and Henry could be the fifth, following Mark Ingram, Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy and T.J. Yeldon.
According to CBSSports.com, Henry is the second-best running back prospect in this class behind Ohio State's Ezekiel Elliott. Henry is considered to be one of the best 50 prospects in this class, and received a second-round grade.
Henry's production at the college level speaks for itself (2,219 rushing yards and 28 touchdowns). What he'll have to show at the next level is quicker feet and also avoid getting taken down in the backfield when there isn't always a hole there. There haven't been a ton of running backs with Henry's size (6-foot-2, 242 pounds) who have consistently thrived in the NFL. But if there's anyone who could buck the trend, it's the Heisman Trophy winner from Yulee, Fla.
Drake is one of Alabama's more intriguing prospects as he has the ability to play running back, wide receiver and return kicks.
Drake received a heavy workload during his Senior Bowl workouts, taking reps at running back, receiver and as a return man with scouts on hand raving about his playmaking ability.
On paper, combine workouts seem like something Drake would thrive at, but it'll be interesting to see how Drake tests with the bright lights on.
CBSSports.com lists Drake as the eighth-best running back and has him projected to go in the third or fourth round of the draft.
Injuries slowed Drake's production over his final two seasons at Alabama, but he showcased his elite speed with a 95-yard kick return touchdown to help the Tide win the national championship.
One area he'll have to improve in is pass protection.
This past season, Jones was the Tide's shutdown cornerback on the outside. He also had a breakout campaign as a punt returner, returning four for touchdowns.
Early in his Alabama career, Jones played some receiver so he is a multi-talented athlete.
At the Senior Bowl, Jones showed he was physical enough to play press-man coverage on the outside. He'll have to prove he can guard receivers out of the slot while also showcasing his return abilities at the next level.
CBSSports.com lists Jones as the 16th-best prospect at his position, and gives him a fourth round draft projection.
CBSSports.com lists Jackson as the 33rd best offensive tackle. Listed at 6-foot-6, 315 pounds, Jackson has all of the physical tools to play at the next level, but he'll have to prove he can hold up in pass protection. Jackson struggled at times blocking on the edge, including the national championship game against Clemson. He also battled injuries throughout his time with the Tide, so he'll have to show he can stay healthy to earn a roster spot.
Pettway was one of about nine or 10 defensive lineman that Alabama regularly rotated last season. He finished the year with 18 tackles, including 5.0 tackles for loss and a pair of sacks. In 2014, he posted 23 tackles with 3.0 tackles for loss and two sacks.
CBSSports.com rates Pettway as the 19th-best defensive tackle, and has him projected to go in the fifth or sixth round.
With some strong workouts, Pettway could show he's more than just a product of Alabama's loaded system.
