The 2024 NFL Draft starts on April 25 in Detroit with the 32 first-round picks. In the 88 NFL drafts, teams have chosen 128 prospects who played at Alabama high schools and colleges in the first round, and another 29 who were not first-rounders but were selected in the first 32 picks. AL.com is counting down to the draft by highlighting the players with Alabama football roots who have been chosen in the first 32 picks.

All-star running backs have been the yield three out of the four times that NFL teams have picked a prospect who played at an Alabama high school or college at No. 24 in the draft.

Auburn’s James Brooks in 1981 and Alabama’s Josh Jacobs in 2019 and Najee Harris in 2021 have had three 1,000-yard rushing seasons apiece in their NFL careers.
