Scouts can roll into Alabama to check out the sterling Crimson Tide draft class on March 23.

With the NFL Scouting Combine shuttered this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, prospects entered in the 2021 NFL Draft expect heightened scrutiny at pro day workouts held on their college campuses.Presumptive No. 1 pick Trevor Lawrence moved up his own workout this month at the suggestion of new Jacksonville Jaguars head coach Urban Meyer. The Clemson quarterback underwent left shoulder surgery and the early pro day cleared his schedule for recovery.

Clemson's pro day will be held on March 11.

The national champion Crimson Tide could challenge the draft record of six first-round picks that was set by Miami (Fla.) in 2004. Alabama's list of prized prospects includes wide receive DeVonta Smith, running back Najee Harris, cornerback Asante Samuel Jr., wide receiver Jaylen Waddle, offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood, linebacker Dylan Moses and defensive lineman LaBryan Ray.

Smith won the Heisman Trophy and scorched Ohio State in the first half of the CFP national championship game before exiting in the third quarter with a hand injury.

He attended the Senior Bowl in Mobile, Ala., but did not make himself available for workouts or official measurements.

Smith is widely viewed as an expected top-10 pick.

Quarterback Mac Jones is another draft-eligible option from Alabama and some pundits have the him projected to be selected in the first round.

Jones will be competing for attention with the likes of North Dakota State's Trey Lance (whose pro day is scheduled for March 12), BYU's Zach Wilson (March 26) and Ohio State's Justin Fields (March 30).
