Alabama will have the most players on the field during week one of the NFL season.

According to Field Yates, there are 53 former Crimson Tide players on the roster for week of the NFL season, which starts this Thursday. That’s enough to make Alabama the most represented college in the league. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Ohio State is second at 50 and LSU is third at 46. No other team in America has more than 35.

Not only does Alabama have the most former players on NFL rosters for week one, but the Crimson Tide also have three starting quarterbacks.

Mac Jones is starting for the Patriots, Jalen Hurts starts for the Eagles and Tua Tagovailoa starts for the Dolphins.

It’s just an absurd pipeline coming out of Tuscaloosa to the NFL.

The one thing you can never say about Nick Saban is that he doesn’t know how to recruit and develop NFL talent.

There’s literally no coach in America who does it better. He recruits the best high school players in the country and then sends them to the NFL in overwhelming force.

Whether you cheer for the Crimson Tide or not, you have to admit it’s incredibly impressive.
