  01/19/21 - Joshua McMillonrSr/2021, Alabama, 6-2, 240 (DS#29 ILB) + More +

  Alabama's longest-tenured player will not be extending his college career for another year. Crimson Tide linebacker Joshua McMillon, who spent the 2020 season as a sixth-year graduate student, announced Monday evening on Twitter that he would be entering the upcoming NFL draft: McMillon told AL.com's Michael Casagrande in September that he was keeping his options open for a seventh season in 2021 that would have been made possible by the NCAA's blanket eligibility waiver. Fifth-year center Chris Owens last week became the first Alabama senior to take advantage of the extra year of eligibility. The Memphis native redshirted in 2015 and was approved for another redshirt in 2019 after tearing his ACL during preseason camp. He was slated for a starting role before the injury. - Birmingham News

  The NFL Scouting Combine was about the last thing the league did in 2020 that wasn't affected by the coronavirus pandemic. But almost a year later, the NFL has decided the 2021 version of the event will be drastically changed because of the COVID-19 crisis. The top prospects for the NFL Draft won't gather in Indianapolis next month, as they have annually since 1987. But the league doesn't consider the combine canceled. Instead, a memo sent from the league office to the NFL's 32 teams on Monday said, "The 2021 combine will be conducted in a different format. There will be no in-person workouts at the combine. Instead, any workouts will take place on the individual pro days on college campuses." To keep each team from having to send personnel to every college pro day, the NFL said it would "ensure that all clubs have access to video from those workouts." - Birmingham News

  Alabama football offensive lineman Chris Owens is taking advantage of the NCAA's COVID-19 eligibility waiver, returning for a second senior season in 2021. Owens was UA's most valuable backup on the offensive line in 2020, filling in for Evan Neal at right tackle against Arkansas and for both College Football Playoff games at center. Owens also started five games at center in 2019 before an injury forced him out of the lineup, never to return as the starting center. He finished that season playing some as a tight end in specialty packages. - Montgomery Advertiser
