Alabama DB Saivion Smith becomes professional

Another Alabama player is out of the NFL.

Cornerback Saivion Smith decided to enter the NFL draft.

Smith, who joined the Crimson Tide as a transfer from the junior college last year, started 12 games as a junior for Alabama this season.

Smith started Tide's first three games, lost his starting job during the team's Week 3 game against Ole Miss, returned to the starting lineup in Week 7 after Alabama lost Trevon Diggs to an injury that ended the season and ended the year with 60 Collisions and three interceptions.

He is the fifth Tide player to declare for the NFL draft, joining Quinnen Williams, Jonah Williams, Josh Jacobs and Irv Smith.

Linebacker Mack Wilson and Savior Deionte Thompson had not made final decisions on whether to become pro or not as of Saturday afternoon.
