This time last year, DJ Fluker was preparing for the NFL draft. Taken #11 overall by the San Diego Chargers, the former Alabama offensive lineman went on to make the NFL’s All-Rookie team this past season. According to the player, NIck Saban’s practices in Tuscaloosa were good prep work for the challenges he’s experienced at the professional level:
“Playing at Alabama, practise-wise, is probably a lot harder than playing in the NFL. Being under Coach Saban and the practices he makes each and every day was like an NFL game. That prepared me the most, being in that environment every single day…
Coach made everything organized, just like being in the NFL.”
Gee, you don’t think Alabama will use Fluker’s comments on the recruiting trail, do you?
