JC Latham was a contributor to Alabama from the time he first stepped on campus. During his freshman season, he started on Alabama's field goal units and extra points, missing only the SEC Championship against Georgia in 2021.

During his sophomore season, Latham laid claim to the starting right tackle spot along Alabama's offensive line and never let go of it. There was some discussion about him converting to left tackle following Evan Neal's selection in the NFL after 2022, but Latham proved once again he would anchor the right side of Alabama's offensive line in 2023.

Latham's NFL dream has now come true. The Tennessee have selected Alabama offensive tackle JC Latham with the No. 7 overall pick in the 2024 NFL draft.

Latham will likely anchor the right side of the Titans offensive line. The team needs help along the rest of the offensive line, but Latham has the most experience at right tackle. Latham stands as a whopping six-foot-six, 360 pounds according to the Crimson Tide's website, although he told reporters during Alabama's pro day that he's lost close to 20 pounds and is still working towards a lower goal.

Tide 100.9 is keeping a tracker of where Alabama's players are drafted, and where undrafted free agents (UDFA) sign following the NFL draft. You can view that here.
