Aug 24, 2013; Arlington, TX, USA; Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick (27) defends against Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant (88) in the first quarter of the game at AT

 

Nick Saban has the Alabama Crimson Tide in the midst of one of the greatest dynasties college football has ever seen, but that doesn’t mean he’s had a wealth of successful NFL Draft picks during his tenure in Tuscaloosa.

Many of his players have gone on to be high draft picks, only to fail to live up to the value of the position in which they were selected at. Current Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, who is unlikely to play Sunday vs the Green Bay Packers.

It’s been a rough season thus far for Kirkpatrick, which was painfully highlighted during the team’s preseason loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Kirkpatrick endured a night to forget against Dallas, as he allowed a touchdown to Dez Bryant, committed two pass interference penalties, missed three tackles while nine receptions were made on his coverage before he left the game as the result of a concussion suffered in the fourth-quarter on special teams.

    It looks good on the Bengals, after asking and getting a kings ransom for Palmer, it’s nice to see one of the picks wasted on a guy who appears to be a bust.
