Recruitment has always been the lifeblood of college football, the best universities and coaches bring in the top talent, because that talent understands that they can get drafted higher coming out of an elite program. It's the ultimate symbiotic relationship in sports, one that truly never fails.

This recent stat shows that relationship on full display in 2020. Alabama currently has a starter at all 22 NFL positions. With NFL-ready players like that, it makes it hard to believe the college football powerhouse will ever fall off.

Nick Saban is of course the straw that stirs the drink. So long as he is running the program and coaching the team, the Crimson Tide will roll.

If you're curious about who made the list that has broken the NCAA internet so to speak, the SEC Network has you covered.

Julio Jones, Derrick Henry, Josh Jacobs, Minkah Fitzpatrick, Marlon Humphrey, Amari Cooper and rookie Tua Tagovailoa are just a few of the top tier NFL stars from this group, but very few of these players can be scoffed at. As the phrase goes, only two things in life are guaranteed, death and taxes. Well we might as well add Alabama players getting drafted to the old adage.
