The University of Miami originally set the record in 2004.
The night began with three Crimson Tide players selected in the top 10: receiver Jaylen Waddle (Miami Dolphins, No. 6), cornerback Patrick Surtain II (Denver Broncos, No. 9) and receiver DeVonta Smith (Philadelphia Eagles, No. 10).
Quarterback Mac Jones went at No. 15 to the New England Patriots, and then the Las Vegas Raiders surprised much of the draft world by selecting offensive tackle Alex Leatherwood at No. 17. ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr. had Leatherwood ranked as this year's No. 62 overall draft prospect.
Since 2008, Alabama has had 39 first-round picks, by far the most of any school.
