AlabamaA coach Nick Saban has plenty of experience replacing star players who declare early for the NFL Draft, and this offseason will be no different. Defensive lineman Quinnen Williams, running back Josh Jacobs, tight end Irv Smith and offensive linemanA Jonah WilliamsA all declared for the 2019 draft on Friday during a press conference at the school.

Williams burst onto the scene in 2018 as one of the top players in all ofA college football. A relatively unknown piece of the Crimson Tide defensive puzzle heading into the season, Williams racked up 71 tackles, 19.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks and 21 quarterback hurries. He won the Outland Trophy awarded to the nation's top interior lineman, was a unanimous All-American and the centerpiece of the Crimson Tide defensive front. The 6-foot-4, 295-pound redshirt sophomore is listed as the No. 2 overall prospect in the CBS SportsA updated list of draft prospectsA behindA Ohio State'sA Nick Bosa, and went No. 2 overall to the Oakland Raiders in Chris Trapasso'sA latest mock draft.A

The lightly-recruited, 5-foot-10, 204-pound native of Tulsa, Oklahoma, rushed for 640 yards and 11 touchdowns, caught 20 passes for 247 yards and three touchdowns and had 428 kickoff return yards with one score.
