Back in 2004, six players from Miami (Sean Taylor, Kellen Winslow, Jonathan Vilma, D.J. Williams, Vernon Carey and Vince Wilfork) were selected in the first round of the NFL Draft, the biggest first-round bounty ever provided by a single school.
The 2013 Crimson Tide could catch the Canes.
The best of the bunch is Will backer C.J. Mobley, whose 99 tackles in 2012 were 43 more than anyone else on the Alabama defense. Mobley is as talented in coverage as he is in making tackles. If the Tide unleash him as a pass rusher more than they have in the past, he'll prove to NFL decision-makers that he's the total package.
He may be the best outside backer in the country. Likewise, Alabama has four other players who easily could turn out to be the tops at their respective positions.
