Fitzpatrick leads four Alabama players taken in NFL Draft's opening round

Fitzpatrick leads four Alabama players taken in NFL Draft's opening round

With the 236th pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Cowboys found a young running back for depth behind Ezekiel Elliott.

Sharing time with other backs in the crowded Crimson Tide backfield, Scarbrough would end with 1,512 rushing yards and 20 touchdowns during his time with Alabama.

With four players taken Thursday, the Tide has 26 first-round picks since 2008, joining Miami (1995-2008) as the only program with at least one first-rounder in 10 straight years.

Fitzpatrick was quickly followed by fellow Alabama defender Da'Ron Payne, who was taken two picks later at No. 13 overall by the Washington Redskins, reuniting with former Tide defensive lineman Jonathan Allen in the nation's capital.

The four first-round selections are the most for any team in this year's opening round. The Tennessee Titans selected Evans at No. 22, while the Atlanta Falcons drafted Ridley at No. 26.

Pompeo starts Mideast tour with call for new Iran sanctions
The NATO meeting focused on preparations for July's NATO heads of state and government summit, according to the State Department. Pompeo, in a statement relayed by the State Department, said he was "delighted" to serve as America's top diplomat.

Having played all over the Crimson Tide secondary the past three seasons, including at safety after a late-season injury forced a midseason move in 2016, Fitzpatrick's versatility could be seen as a benefit for the Dolphins. Indeed, Alabama may set a record this year if all five of its defensive backs get drafted. Amari Cooper was selected in 2015.

Payne was regarded as one of the top defensive line prospects following the 2017 season. He also had seven quarterback hurries to tie for second at the school and was second on he team with six sacks. He was tabbed to the All-SEC first team by the Associated Press while garnering second-team recognition from the conference coaches. He finished fourth on the team in tackles with 60 in 2017 while recording eight tackles for loss and contributing one-and-a-half sacks.

He also reeled in 21 receptions for 131 yards.

The Fort Lauderdale, Florida, native was named first-team All-SEC by the coaches.

Scarbrough is coming off a season in which he rushed for 596 yards on 124 carries with eight touchdowns for the Crimson Tide.
