Six From Alabama Go Unselected in NFL Draft
After all seven rounds of the 2022 draft, six Alabama players, including Chris Allen, Slade Bolden, Josh Jobe, Chris Owens, LaBryan Ray and Daniel Wright, remained unselected to play in the NFL. They will immediately become undrafted free agents (UDFA) and be free to sign with any team.
Chris Allen - Linebacker
Allen missed most of his senior season due to a foot injury in Alabama's season-opening victory against Miami in 2021. He appeared in 34 games while in Tuscaloosa and accumulated 7.5 sacks along with 19.5 tackles resulting in a loss.
After going unselected, Allen signed with the Denver Broncos as a UDFA.
Slade Bolden - Receiver
The Louisiana native saw time in 41 games with the Crimson Tide and threw a touchdown pass in the 2020 national championship victory. Bolden totaled four touchdowns, 68 receptions and 712 receiving yards during his four seasons with the Tide.
Several hours after the draft ended, Bolden announced his UDFA signing with the Baltimore Ravens.
Josh Jobe - Defensive back
Jobe stuck around at Alabama for an additional year in 2021 and recorded two interceptions as a senior. He was kept from participating in the College Football Playoff after a season-ending injury in the SEC Championship game victory over Georgia.
After appearing in 51 games with Alabama, he signed as a UDFA with the Philadelphia Eagles.
Chris Owens - Offensive line
The sixth-year senior out of Texas appeared in 53 games with the Crimson Tide and was a part of the offensive line winning the 2020 Joe Moore award. Owens filled in multiple spots throughout the line and made 20 starts during his college career.
He was picked up by the Pittsburgh Steelers as a UDFA immediately after going unselected.
LaBryan Ray - Defensive line
The 6-foot-5 Alabama native accumulated six sacks, two pass deflections and a forced fumble during his 44-game tenure in Tuscaloosa. Ray was picked up by the New England Patriots as a free agent following the draft.
Daniel Wright - Defensive back
Wright appeared in 59 games throughout his five years with the Crimson Tide and was a standout on special teams. He tallied a touchdown return with the special teams in 2020 and record 115 total tackles in his career.
