Alabama WR Slade Bolden Declares For NFL Draft

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Alabama has lost another one of its starting receivers to the next level. A day after Jameson Williams declared for the NFL Draft, the Crimson Tide saw fellow starting receiver Slade Bolden follow suit Friday afternoon.

"Dear Bama Nation, I want to first off say how blessed and thankful I am to have been a part of a loving and supporting fan base," Bolden posted on social media. "I will miss BDS [Bryant-Denny Stadium] and the fans more than anything.

"I want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing me with this opportunity. I would also like to thank Coach [Holman] Wiggins, Coach [Bill] O'Brien, and most of all Coach [Nick] Saban for believing in me and giving me every opportunity to be successful.

"I'm thankful for my family, my teammates, and all those along the way that supported me and were there when I needed them.

"I played my heart out every game and did everything I could to help this team win. With that being said, I will be declaring for the 2022 NFL Draft to chase my dreams that I've worked so hard to achieve.
