Alabama football is positioned for another impressive NFL draft class.

Four former Crimson Tide players were invited to attend the draft in New York. The invitation is typically reserved for prospects that have strong chance at being selected in the first round.

Cornerback Dee Milliner, guard Chance Warmack, tackle D.J. Fluker and running back Eddie Lacy are expected to be at the NFL draft. If each of those players are selected on the first night, it will be the third straight year Alabama has produced four first-round selections.

Defensive tackle Jesse Williams is also considered by some to be a potential first-round pick.

Offensive lineman Barrett Jones, linebacker Nico Johnson and safety Robert Lester are also expected to be selected in this year's draft.

The NFL draft, held annually at Radio City Music Hall in New York, is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. Thursday. ESPN will televise the event.

Dee Milliner, 1st round, 10th pick, Tennessee Titans.

Chance Warmack, 1st round, 12th pick, Miami Dolphins

D.J. Fluker, 1st round, 15th pick, New Orleans Saints
