Alabama's cornerback duo, Kool-Aid McKinstry and Terrion Arnold has been a formidable force in the team's defense. Their ability to read plays and intercept the ball has been instrumental in Alabama's solid defensive performance. Both players are likely to be high picks in the upcoming NFL draft.

McKinstry's season statistics:

  • Total Tackles: 27
  • Total Interceptions: 3
  • Pass Deflections: 7

Ideal Draft Position: 

McKinstry will be the first CB and defender off the board, the Commander at four, the Giants at five are likely, or the Bears with the seventh. 

Arnold's season statistics:

  • Total Tackles: 61
  • Total Interceptions: 5
  • Pass Deflections: 11

Ideal Draft Position: 

Arnold will go right after Kool-aid, possibly seventh to the Bears, the Raiders at eight, or paired with fellow Crimson Tide alum Asante Samuel Jr. with the Broncos at 16.
