The Alabama Crimson Tide had seven players selected during this past week’s 2015 NFL Draft and the athletic department created some of the coolest graphics of any college highlighting their selections.
Below are four of the images generated by Director of Football Creative Matt Lange using the theme “success is a work of art.”

ASHBURN, Va. (AP) The offensive line was an area of concern for the Washington Redskins when they finished last in the NFC East last year for the sixth time in seven seasons. So they took Alabama guard Arie Kouandjio in the fourth round of the NFL draft on Saturday after using the fifth overall pick on Thursday to select Iowa tackle Brandon Scherff.
The 6-foot-5, 310-pound Kouandjio...

Draft Matt Miller reports that Florida State G Tre‘ Jackson and Alabama G Arie Kouandjio both have failed “multiple” team physicals due to chronic knee problems. Evaluators around the league are mixed when it comes to Georgia RB Todd Gurley being a Top 10 pick, according to Miller. Four separate teams tell Miller that they expect Nebraska DE/OLB Randy ...
The Seattle Seahawks have a problem, and it rhymes with shmoffensive shmline.
But, if you have seen them play over the last couple of years you already knew that (two Super Bow appearances aside.) The problem is that the shmoffensive shmline is about to get that much worse, thanks to Max Unger’s trade to the Saints and James Carptenter’s signing with the Jets. Without Unger...
Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center.
While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

Some of the players thrived in their opportunity to improve their draft stock while others wasted their chance...
After the dust settled from the final day of padded practices, I joined NBC draft analyst Josh Norris for a 2015 Senior Bowl scouting film session of the one-on-one drills from the past week. We looked at every one of the offensive line and defensive line battles, and also broke down a handful of the wide receiver and defensive back one-on-one’s.
Here’s a breakdown of prospects...

For the first time in many years, the Alabama football team doesn’t have many “big name” players on the offensive line for the 2014 season. With the loss of key players Cyrus Kouandjio, Anthony Steen, and Kellen Williams from the offensive line, Alabama has to put together a national...
