Mosley, Cyrus, AJ...anyone else?

I've seen Pagan projected high, he'd have to have an excellent year though. Hubbard could also make it if he becomes the sack monster we're all hoping he becomes. Outside shot of HCD and Belue, don't know the feasibility of either though.
Off-hand I'd say Hubbard has the best shot of anyone.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.
IMHO we have 4 again. AJ, Mosely, HCD, Cyrus. We also have two outside shots depending on how their season progresses in Hubbard and Pagan.
Anybody else would be dependent on showing out and having a great season....possibilities include Hubbard, Clinton-Dix, Dickson, Pagan, Stinson....but it's probably more likely that we have fewer first rounders next year than in years past.
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

Our 3 & done's make my head spin. When I hear about HCD going first round I am just blown away. He was a kid competing for PT this year. Next year he may go first round? Name another team that's even possible on.
Cyrus and CJ are pretty much guarantees barring injury. I think AJ, Pagan, Hubbard, Stinson, HCD, and Belue are your top candidates after that depending on the season they have. Call me crazy, but I think Steen gets in the conversation by season's end.
My picks: AJ, CJ, HCD, and Cyrus
"From the rest comes the best"
Better than Cyrus?
In order they will be selected in the first round as of right now, IMO:
Guys that could play their way in are:

AJ is going to have a monster year to be a 1st rounder imo
Eat clean. Train Hard.
McShay said before the NC game that if AJ came back for his Sr year he had a good chance of being a mid-first round pick.
You mean like....
211/314 (.672); 2933 yards; 30 TD / 3 INT; 175.28 QB to lead CFB?
His season next year if not bad is meaningless. He has almost nothing to prove accept accuracy down field and getting to his second or third read faster. His numbers will not need to be a hair better than last year and he is still a first round pick in my view.
Yes, about like that. AJ had a monster year this year. I think he would have to come out and out up about the same numbers. That's just my opinion. The main thing that will keep him out of the 1st Rd is his lack of consistency going down field (like you mentioned). That has got to become automatic
