Four Alabama players are skipping their final seasons to enter the NFL draft, including All-America left tackle Jonah Williams and Outland Trophy-winning defensive lineman Quinnen Williams. They helped lead the Crimson Tide to a Southeastern Conference title before losing 44-16 to Clemson in the national championship game. Alabama has other standout players who haven’t announced their plans yet. Smith wasn’t present at the announcement because he’s attending the wedding of fellow tight end Hale Hentges this weekend. His father, Irv Smith Sr., is a former NFL tight end who was a first-round pick by the New Orleans Saints in 1993.
