Calvin Ridley and Da'Ron Payne entering NFL Draft

Crimson Tide's Ridley declares for NFL Draft

Ridley made his announcement less than 48 hours after the Crimson Tide beat Georgia in the national championship game.

Savage, the executive director of the Reese's Senior Bowl, joined me on "The Opening Kickoff" on WNSP-FM 105.5 on Thursday to discuss Calvin Ridley, Da'Ron Payne and Bo Scarbrough.

Star wideout Calvin Ridley already chose to turn pro official on Wednesday, posting a note to his social media accounts.

Alabama wide receiver Calvin Ridley will forego his senior year and enter the 2018 National Football League draft, he announced on Twitter.

Alabama Running Back Bo Scarbrough, who just finished his junior season with the Crimson Tide, has signed with a sports marketing company and is headed to the National Football League, according to a source.




"I think it was a pretty clear decision with my family and my coaches", he said.

ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. rates Ridley as the draft's top receiver and the 10th-best player overall in his big board.

In three years with the Crimson Tide, Ridley caught 224 passes for 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns, including 63 catches for 967 yards and five touchdowns this season. I would expect based upon what people think of his pass-rushing ability, he's definitely a first-rounder. WalterFootball.com ranks is the No. 1 ranked wide receiver in the 2018 draft class.

Another standout, running back Damien Harris, will forgo the draft and come back for his senior season, according to the website.

The 6-1, 204-pounder from Evans, Ga., did not play this past season after getting in 24 games his first two years with the Bulldogs and recording 12 tackles.
