    Who are the most likely players to replace those we are losing on the OL?

    I thought Cyrus' brother Aries for LG. Ryan for C. I'm not familiar with those who can replace Fluker. What do you think?

    i believe we have a JUCO lineman coming in that has the potential to replace Fluker.

    LG - Alphonse Taylor
    C - Ryan Kelly
    RT - Leon Brown

    We have a few players; it depends on how they develop this offseason. Candidates would be:

    LG: Arie K., Luatua, Taylor
    C: Ryan Kelly (I think he's clearly the leader but other ppl may emerge in the spring)
    RT: Leon Brown, Austin Shepherd, Arie K (maybe Brandon Greene)

    My guess is Arie K, Kelly, and Shepherd start. Brown is really the unknown; he could come in and start right away like Carpenter or he could provide depth as a #2.

    Would Tunsil have a shot at starting if he came to Bama?

    OL is the toughest position for a true freshman to come in and start in college football. You often have a true man vs boys situation.
    I think the biggest loss is going to be Barrett Jones and his team leadership. Those kinds of men don't come along every day.

    Yeah, but I don't know much about Tunsil or the guys currently on the roster. I figured there was an outside chance depending on what the depth at OL is like.

    Agree, but if Arie Kouandjou is healthy, hes going to be in the running for a spot as well...

    gonna be a good battle going into the srpring...

    I just hope they gel as a group early.

    I dont think so, not as a true freshman....unless our current players are absolute busts...
    its the absolute hardest position to contribute as a freshman.

    Also, one big reason they went after the JUCO Leon Brown...as a safety net against our current roster not having a solid RT.

    I want the Kouandjio brothers starting beside one another... Kelly is going to be a stud. Leon Brown is the xfactor...if he steps in ready at RT, we'll be good

    LT: Cyrus Kouandjio
    LG: Arie Kouandjio
    C: Ryan Kelly
    RG: Anthony Steen
    RT: Leon Brown / Austin Shepherd

    I could be wrong but I think Brandon Hill, the prep OT, is going to end up at nose tackle before it's all said and done. Therefore, Shepherd is still the likely RT of the future.

    Perhaps but I have a gut feeling that Alphonse Taylor = Chance Warmack 2.0.
