The third and final day of the 2023 NFL Draft finished with two former Alabama players selected by NFL teams.

A pair of defenders, linebacker Henry To’o To’o and safety DeMarcco Hellams, were the last two Alabama players selected in the draft, bringing the total of Crimson Tide players selected to 10. The 10 players selected tied for the second most in school history. Over the last six drafts, Alabama has had double-digit players selected in five drafts, with 2021 still holding the program record for having the most with 12 players selected.

With the 167th pick of the draft in round five, Henry To’o To’o finally heard his name called by the Houston Texans. To’o To’o joins his teammate Will Anderson, Jr., who was selected by Houston with the third overall pick, as well as last year's draft picks Christian Harris and John Metchie. Former Alabama star, and now head coach for the Houston Texans, DeMeco Ryans now has a good amount of Crimson Tide flavor to begin his first season as head coach.

In the seventh and final round of the draft, safety DeMarcco Hellams was selected by the Atlanta Falcons with the 224th overall pick, making him the last Alabama player taken this year. Along with Battle and Branch, who were selected in earlier rounds, Hellams makes the third safety from the Crimson Tide to be selected in the 2023 draft.

The 10 total draft picks by Alabama brings their grand total to 123 picks over the last 15 years with Nick Saban as head coach, which is also more selections than any other program over that time frame. Of the 123 selections over the last 15 years, Saban has produced 44 first round picks.
