On Nick Saban’s watch, seven Alabama wide receivers have been chosen with first-round picks: Julio, Amari, Ridley, Jeudy, Ruggs, Waddle and Devonta Smith. Prior to Saban showing up, who was the only Crimson Tide wide receiver to be selected in the first round in the Super Bowl era? The majority of readers will have never heard of said player, so for that group, they can instead sub in the name of the best-known quarterback who completed passes to this player in college.
Dennis Homan (selected by the Cowboys in 1968). Homan finished his NFL career with 37 catches and 2 TDs. He was a member of the Birmingham Americans team that won the first championship of the World Football League. In the 1966-67 seasons at Alabama, Ken Stabler was the main quarterback.
