Cyrus was our starting LT and is the prototype LT so he will be playing at LT next year and for many years in the NFL. Now the RT postion will be up for grabs w/ Brown and Shepard.This is for next years team.
Bama 2013 Offense.
Here is what I am seeing for next year.
What I feel good about. I think our OLINE will be fine. Even if I am wrong about 1 or 2 guys, there are guys on the roster thats been thru offseason workouts and spring ball. They will gel and be ready for Va Tech and then a week off to improve before the showdown with Jonny football.
Receivers are experienced and talented. They have some great depth.
Running backs should I say any more, wow unbelievable on what has gone on here since 2008.
HB and TE. This is what bothers me. Yes I saw where Volger was more involved and Jones played a little but this could be a problem. We need that flex person at HB with the traditional big TE.

WRX A Cooper, White
WRZ K Norwood, Bell

TE B Vogler, M Ficane
TE/H Fowler, O Howard : Who can fill Smelleys shoes at this position. We missed him in at least 3 games this past season. There are options here. Who knew Kelly Johnson would start, I sure did not.
Bama 2013 Defense
The strength of this D will be the back 4 plus the Star. At safety there is depth and talent.
For linebacker, having CJ return is simply awesome. Plus there are some young guys that will make some noise.
Dlineman are very young. Ivory came on this season and should be the guy next season unless one of the young guys steps up. D Lake, Ball or Paige at NG.

I did not go over special teams. But if someone wants to look at that I am sure no one would complain.
The good news is the guys on the roster and EEs will have 30 + plus practices before Va Tech. . Mix that with offseason workouts and Va Tech better fasten their chin straps a little tighter. Then offseason for Coach to go over the no huddle, Jonny Football, cant wait people!!!!
April is just around the corner to see who is where and the Spring game should be awesome!!
Roll Tide and enjoy the ride
