Alabama’s Richardson and Kirkpatrick declare for NFL Draft

Win a national championship.  Go pro.

Sounds about right.

Alabama running back Trent Richardson and cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick both said they’re turning pro at a press conference on the Alabama campus today. Alabama coach Nick Saban said he’s “100 percent supportive of both of these young men.”

Projected to be Top 10 picks, Richardson is thought to be the most talented running back in the draft, while Kirkpatrick the same at cornerback.

“To leave a legacy like we have, me and Dre have left here, to have two national championships in three years, I think that’s pretty big,” Richardson said.


Here are the Top 10 Picks in the 2012 NFL Draft:

  1. Indianapolis Colts
  2. St. Louis Rams
  3. Minnesota Vikings
  4. Cleveland Browns
  5. Tampa Bay Bucs
  6. Washington Redskins
  7. Jacksonville Jaguars
  8. Carolina Panthers
  9. Miami Dolphins
