  Terrell Lewis was the eighth of the nine players selected from Alabama in the NFL Draft last month. But the Los Angeles Rams think they might have gotten the best the Crimson Tide had to offer this year when they acquired the outside linebacker with a third-round choice. Rams general manager Les Snead cited Alabama coach Nick Saban and his Crimson Tide staff as the basis for that notion. During a video presentation this month for the team's season-ticket holders, Snead recounted how a scouting report from Alabama's 2018 spring practice stuck with him from among the thousands of words the Rams' scouts wrote about Lewis.

"Amongst all those five-stars and all the draftees they've had over the last few years," Snead said, "there was one sentence where, either (scout) Billy (Johnson) or Ted (Monago) wrote, the staff ranked Alabama players one through 125 or however many they have out there on that practice field, they ranked Terrell one and (quarterback) Tua (Tagovailoa) second. I remember ad nauseum of really trying to figure out this player and work through him, that sentence and that piece of data definitely resonated. A very astute staff that's won a lot of games and has seen a lot of talent put this five-star as their most talented player on the team." Johnson, an area scout for the Rams, said Saban's opinion carried weight proportional to the coach's status in college football. "Alabama's the mecca," Johnson said. "It's the land of the five-stars. You can go out there as a scout and just start drooling. Everybody looks good. You definitely listen if he says something. You're going to write it down and probably put it in a report, that's for sure." - Birmingham News
