    That factor, plus Dickson/Hubbard/Devall/even Stinson being back for another year and improving as a pass rush should really take care of a lot of the issues we had this year. Including the experience returning in the secondary. It's really exciting.

    Dline will be fine. the only thing to worry about year to year is who is the NT, and I think Ivory has looked solid this year and will only improve with more reps. We stay loaded at DE

    NT is Ivory's to lose. He has been great and came up key on 3rd and 4th down plays with the season on the line with LSU and Georgia, with both ankles gimpy. I'm more worried about the ends than NT.

    Ivory will be fine. I'm really high on what Pettway and Pagan can do with another year under their belts. The front seven in general is going to be a huge strength next season. The safety position won't be far off from the kind of depth at linebacker. The only question is finding 3 good corners. I feel good about two spots but we need Fulton or somebody to step up as the nickel corner.

    I don't think Star is good for Fulton, he's better on the outside. I think all of the guys are going to improve going into next year, including Belue, but overall...the corners need to and IMO will be helped by better pass rush. The ends and OLBs improvement will be key, and I'd say Hubbard is one to watch. He's got all the tools to be a NFL DE, and maybe the best Jack we've had so far. He needs to improve, and I'm sure he will.

    But, I think Belue and Fulton start on the outside, and Geno is the nickel back. His improvement this season should make fans excited about the future. He's got good size, and you can tell CNS had high hopes for him from the beginning, as he got lit up on the sidelines more than a few times for mistakes earlier in the season while receiving reps in blowouts.

    I think the front 7 returns as a top 5 front 7 in the nation as has been the norm with Saban. And the secondary returns better overall than this year. Strength, depth and versatility @ safety....3 solid (not great) corners.

    Yeah, I use nickel corner to state the 5th corner...I say star when talking about the position on the field. Obviously, Geno is a better fit at star because he's already playing there and like you said, Fulton is probably better when having the sideline as an additional defender.

    I think we'll start off shaky on the D-line, not because of talent, but because of the newness. It could make or break the season, kinda like the O-line. It will be very interesting to watch once it gets here, but for now I'll get to watch them on January 7th. A lot of the future will be playing in that game.
