  • Well, looks like Jalen is staying and accepting the back up role this year. Really thought he'd voluntarily sit and have 2 years to play but I can't be mad at his decision. It was his to make. I hope it isn't taken as me badmouthing him by me saying "I hope we don't need him in a game", because if the worst case scenario happened I'd be elated to have him step in. I just hope that said scenario doesn't happen. Roll Tide, Jalen.

          • With Womack coming back, it seems like a guard spot would be the priority. Whether that means Womack or Wills moving to Guard I dunno, but that would be the biggest room for improvement, with either Leatherwood or Cotton IMO

              Surprisingly Leatherwood hasn't been as good as hoped this year. Cotton has always been good in runs; less so in pass blocking.

                Well our run blocking is an issue.

                • The ProFootballFocus article that Sabin (Rainer) references in his AL.com article about Leatherwood: https://www.profootballfocus.com/new...ugh-four-weeks

                  I'm surprised we grade out as the second best OL in the SEC:

                  2. Alabama Crimson Tide

                  Left tackle Jonah Williams figures to be an early draft pick when he leaves school for the NFL, and after impressing as a freshman and sophomore, he has taken his game to another level in his junior year. Through four weeks in 2018, Williams is the highest-graded offensive tackle in the nation and has allowed just two hurries from 132 pass-blocking snaps. The unit overall lacks a weak link, and while right guard Alex Leatherwood is the lowest-graded player on the line at 64.5, that still sees him in the middle of the pack in the SEC, ranking at the 16th-graded graded guard out of the 25 to play at least 200 snaps. As a group, they have been key to Alabama’s running game, and it’s no surprise that through every gap where they have run at least three times, they average over five yards per carry.

                  • Also according to their grades, Quinnen Williams and Deointe Thompson have been the two best defensive players in the country this year: https://www.profootballfocus.com/new...-stars-of-2018

                              Good point, though I think he'll be gone after his 3rd year anyway.

                              • I don't think you can play in the postseason under that 4 game rule.
