Outside Linebacker Dallas Turner

On the leadup to the NFL Draft:

"The process has been good. It's something you've got to enjoy because you only go through it once. You really get to expand, get out of your comfort zone, meet new people, see a lot of new faces, and go to a lot of new places. Just the overall experience, it's everything you've wanted to be a part of since you were five or six years old. This is all just a dream come true, really."

Defensive Back Kool-Aid McKinstry

On what Alabama's Pro Day means to him:

"It means a lot. Just being here my first two years of college, seeing so many people come here just to watch the guys, for me to finally be one of those guys, it means a lot to me. This whole day and the process has been very special."

Offensive Lineman JC Latham

On being back and what Alabama means to him:

"The standard here at Alabama will always be the standard no matter what. Sometimes moving on to a different situation is best, but not always, and this place (Alabama) will always be what it is because of the standard. I've been keeping it casual with the guys as they head into spring practice, whether that be sliding up on their Instagram story and wishing them luck or if I just run into them at the facility, giving them some encouragement while I've been here training. I appreciate this place so much and I want them to do so, as well."
