  • 2019 Roster Rumblings

    Here's a link to the fresh 2019 Bama football roster: https://rolltide.com/roster.aspx?path=football

    It appears that our 32yd punter who everyone thought was a senior last season is back on the roster. Of the three guys who entered the transfer portal, only Kyriq McDonald is not listed. I'm not sure why he decided to leave, as he was sure to play a big role in the two-deep this season. Keaton Anderson is not on the roster. Not really a loss at safety, but he made a lot of special teams tackles. Ben Davis still heads the top of the roster.

    The worst news I saw in this RollBamaRoll article (link below) is that Cornbread's suspension is thought to go into the first four games of the 2019 season as well. The OL is going to struggle with 3 new starters the first four games. Granted, they're easy games, but there will be no time to gel with Cornbread back in before a tough 5th game @TXAM and 6th game vs. 10rc.

      Thanks for the link Hanni. What do we know about the two GS walkons?

        Whether you were a Jalen-lover or hater, is anybody besides me worried about what we have (or don't have) behind our all-world glass quarterback?

          I prefer to think that he just passed out.

            Apparently we are interested in grad transfer TEs.

            Alabama looks to be interested in potentially adding a grad transfer to its roster.

              Here's a breakdown of the Bama roster for 2019 by both position and class: https://alabama.rivals.com/news/alab...gibility-chart. Only 8 seniors (and fewer than that who are impact players) is a little alarming. RS Senior Matt Womack is our lone senior on offense. We're going to need some juniors and sophomores to step up into leadership roles this year. Leadership seemed lacking on the defense last year, and we lost a lot to boot.

              I also heard something about a walk-on punter from Mobile coming in.

              Here's the breakdown by class. The link above has additional info (including player names). The columns are freshman, sophomore, junior, senior, total. i.e. there are 2 freshman QBs, a sophomore, a junior, and 0 seniors for a total of 4.


              Total Numbers
              Quarterbacks 2 1 1 4
              Running backs 3 2 5
              Tight ends 2 1 2 5
              Receivers 3 3 3 9
              Offensive linemen 7 2 5 1 15
              Defensive linemen 8 1 1 2 12
              Inside linebackers 2 3 1 1 7
              Outside linebackers 4 2 2 1 9
              Cornerbacks 4 2 1 2 9
              Safeties 2 2 1 1 6
              Special Teams 1 2 2 5
              Total 38 19 21 8 86

                Yeah, there was zero leadership last year on D. That needs to change in a big way this year. It's time for Dylan Moses to kick it up a couple of notches and be one of those guys. We'll need some underclassmen to put on their big boy britches and step up as well.
