From recruiting to talent development to the five national championships, the term excellence can be used to describe the 11 seasons of Alabama football under Nick Saban.

In addition to the championships, 77 former Crimson Tide players have been selected in the NFL Draft since 2008.

Despite the volume of players in the NFL, questions have arisen regarding the success level of Saban’s former stars once they transition from a crimson and white jersey to their NFL destination.

During Tuesday’s second hour monologue, Gary Harris tackled the issues surrounding the success of former Alabama players in professional football.

The veteran WVUA 23 sportscaster touched on some failures involving former Saban stars in the NFL including Trent Richardson and Dee Milliner but also relayed the success stories of Julio Jones and Mark Ingram.

Harris also cited the ongoing careers of individuals from Alabama like Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and C.J. Mosley that continue to shine in the NFL on the defensive side of the ball.

Toward the end of the monologue, he also detailed the number of Alabama players in recent years that have started on NFL rosters from the opening game of their rookie seasons.
