Alabama's Ridley, Payne, Scarbrough to enter NFL Draft

Alabama's Ridley, Payne, Scarbrough to enter NFL Draft

Ridley finishes his Crimson Tide career among the program's all-time receiving leaders, including ranking second in touchdown receptions (19) following his game-tying score in Monday's championship game, breaking a tie with Muscle Shoals' Dennis Homan.

He reached the end zone 8 times over the 2017 season. He even scored a rushing touchdown.

Former Lafayette offensive lineman Jedrick Wills, a freshman at Alabama, also played for the Crimson Tide this season. In his three-year career, he caught a pass in all 44 games he appeared in. He was named defensive MVP of the Sugar Bowl and the College Football Playoff National Championship.




In 2016, the Birmingham, Al. native finished with 36 tackles, 3.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, a fumble recovery and a defensive touchdown. He rushed for 113 TDs and more than 6,700 yards while at Madison Southern, and was named the Paul Hornung Award victor for the 2014 season.

Ridley's best season came when he had 1,045 yards receiving with 7 touchdowns during the 2015 campaign.

A history of injuries limited Scarbrough from playing full high school seasons, and his latest big injury occurred in last year's national title loss to Clemson.
