Running back Damien Harris, who was seen by some as a second- or third-round pick, chose to return to school.

Ridley caught a pass in each of the 44 games he played at Alabama, a streak that ranked No. 3 in the Football Bowl Subdivision.

"He's the best. He's the best I've seen", Cochran said.

Many couldn't believe their eyes when quarterback Tua Tagovailoa threw 41-yard strike to wide receiver DeVonta Smith for the game-winning touchdown against Georgia.

Harris led the Tide with exactly 1,000 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns this season while ranking third in the conference averaging 7.41 yards per carry. My experience at Alabama has been exceptional, and I have a lifetime of unforgettable memories and friendships that shall endure forever.

National champion Alabama once again must replace a number of key players leaving early for the NFL draft, including All-America safety Minkah Fitzpatrick.

A five-star recruit out of Monarch, Ridley had a stellar three-year collegiate career, in which he totaled 224 receptions, 2,781 yards and 19 touchdowns. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. has him as the No. 1 draft-eligible wideout.

Scarbrough, a former top prospect, will join them in the draft, according to a report by AL.com, which first reported news on Harris and Payne.

Payne had an interception against Clemson and registered six tackles in the come-from-behind win over Georgia that secured the school's fifth national title in nine seasons.

On Wednesday, wide receiver Calvin Ridley became the first Alabama player to officially declare for the draft.

Alabama won the national title Monday night.
