The Alabama Crimson Tide have become something of an NFL factory. And this year is no different. With top-tier prospects like Tua Tagovailoa, Jerry Jeudy and Jedrick Wills Jr., there should be plenty of Crimson Tide players picked in the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft.

So with that in mind, let's project potential landing spots for some of Alabama's top prospects.

3. Jedrick Wills Jr., Offensive Tackle – Arizona Cardinals (No. 8 Pick)

Entering the offseason, the Arizona Cardinals' upstart offense had two glaring holes: wide receiver and offensive line. After trading for DeAndre Hopkins, it's safe to say they've addressed the former. Even after re-signing D.J. Humphries, the latter still could use some work, though. That makes Alabama's top offensive tackle, Jedrick Wills Jr., a natural fit for the Cardinals with the No. 8 overall selection.

2. Jerry Jeudy, Wide Receiver – Las Vegas Raiders (No. 12 Pick, or No. 19 Pick)

Jerry Jeudy is considered by most analysts to be the top wide receiver in the 2020 NFL Draft. That's no small feat, as this is widely believed to be the best WR class in quite some time. That could have a slightly negative impact on these wideouts' draft stocks, though, as teams could decide to wait and fill the position later. As a result, it wouldn't be a shock to see Jeudy fall out of the top 10, but it'd be hard to imagine the Las Vegas Raiders passing on him at No. 12. Tight end Darren Waller was the team's leading receiver, and no WR broke 700 receiving yards last season. Adding Jeudy could quickly give Vegas a dangerous skill-position group.

1. Tua Tagovailoa, Quarterback – Miami Dolphins (No. 5 Pick)

No surprise here. The Miami Dolphins have been linked to Tua Tagovailoa all year long, and they're well positioned to snag him. Armed with three first-round picks, including the No. 5 overall selection, the Dolphins can hope he falls to them or make a move to trade up.
