Alabama junior wide receiver Calvin Ridley is entering the National Football League draft.

Less than 48 hours after Alabama's dramatic win over Georgia in the national championship game, three players for the Crimson Tide announced their intention to enter the NFL Draft.

Ridley's 224 career receptions also ranks second in program history behind Amari Cooper's 228, while his 2,781 career receiving yards ranks third behind DJ Hall (2,923) and Cooper (3,463). This year, the redshirt junior rushed for a relatively modest 596 yards (4.8 YPC) and eight touchdowns.

Keeping the tirade going against the Congress government, Yogi said law and order had completely collapsed here. He accused the state government of stalling development projects to divert the funds to the Congress's coffers.

Ridley's best season came when he had 1,045 yards receiving with 7 touchdowns during the 2015 campaign. At 6-1, 190 pounds, he is viewed by some as the top wide receiver prospect in the draft and a possible first-round pick. Lauderdale, Fla., had a season-high 171 yards receiving in a victory against Mississippi State on November 11. He had 63 catches for 967 yards while no other wide receiver caught more than 14 balls. Many draft experts, including ESPN's Mel Kiper, project Ridley as a first-round selection.

Now the running back, on the heels of Alabama's fifth national title under head coach Nick Saban, is forgoing his senior season with the Crimson Tide.
