Green Bay Packers rumored to want Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick

Green Bay Packers rumored to want Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick

In three seasons under legendary head coach Nick Saban, the defensive back totaled 171 tackles, 16.5 tackles for loss, five sacks, nine interceptions and 24 passes defended.

Alabama has now had 26 players selected in the first round of the last 10 NFL Drafts.

Four picks after Baker came off the board, defensive lineman Sam Hubbard became the second Buckeyes star to be chosen by his hometown team this season, as the Cincinnati native was selected by the Bengals at No. 77.

- Grier said this after the selection of Penn State's Gesicki followed that of Alabama's Minkah Fitzpatrick, but it also applied to Baker from Ohio State.

Baker was a two-year starter at Ohio State, as he played a majority of his snaps as a weakside linebacker in their 4-3 scheme. The Old Bridge, N.J. native was college football's 2017 Bednarik and Thorpe award victor, the second recipient of each award in Crimson Tide history.

Deutsche Bank to scale back investment bank as profits slump
Deutsche Bank fell as much as 4.2 percent before paring losses and trading 0.5 percent lower at 1:11 Frankfurt. Deutsche Bank Aktiengesellschaft (NYSE:DB) has declined 18.76% since April 25, 2017 and is downtrending.

Evans was taken at No. 22 by the Tennessee Titans.

In taking Oklahoma Heisman Trophy victor Baker Mayfield with the No. 1 overall pick, the Cleveland Browns either hit it big or made a spectacular reach - there's really no in-between.

Ridley joins former Alabama receiver Julio Jones in Atlanta, becoming the third Tide receiver to be taken in the first round since Jones went to the Falcons at No. 6 overall in 2011.

For Alabama, expect safety Ronnie Harrison to be drafted on Day 2, and perhaps cornerback Anthony Averett and defensive end Da'Shawn Hand (maybe even punter JK Scott). Payne ended up starting 31 games in the middle of Alabama's defensive line over his three-year collegiate career. He also caught his first career touchdown pass in the Sugar Bowl. Among those are leadership qualities he demonstrated at Penn State.

Gesicki finished his career at Penn State with 129 receptions, 1,481 receiving yards, and 15 touchdowns. In fact, the last time that they did so was back in the 2009 NFL Draft when they made an aggressive move to get Clay Matthews.
