The Alabama Crimson Tide lost some heavy hitters to the 2020 NFL Draft, and there's really no way to sugar coat it. The Tide accounted for four of the first 15 overall picks in last week's draft alone, and all four of them came from the offensive side of the ball.

Of course, this comes with the territory when you've been recruiting and fielding some of the most talented college football teams in the country for more than a decade. But that's not to say we've seen the last of normalized three-receiver sets that have powered an explosive passing attack in Tuscaloosa, though.
