    Did everyone forget about Dee Hart, DeAndrew White, and Jalston Fowler?

    These guys were injured so early in the season that they never got to make a big impact. I remember the 2011-2012 season though, and I remember how great the "I" formation was, how good Fowler was when he was put in after Lacy, Hart on special teams rocking the punt return, and White always being a steady, solid receiver.

    The bad news is, these guys will have to fight their way back into a position on the team that saw a national title without their help. In any event, they were all solid players, and I loved watching them.

    Is there anyone else that was injured that's trying to come back this season that may have fallen off the radar due to all the buzz around recruiting? We should always be excited about the incoming prospects, but lets not forget about the guys already on the team, even though the might not have been able to contribute since the early part of the season.

    Jarrick Williams was expected to be in the DB rotation before his ACL injury, and of course, there was Chris Black. I think Black, Fowler, and White will be contributors next year, assuming their recovery goes well. Hart and Williams will be battling a ton of young players at their positions, so I'm not sure how those battles will shake out.

    We have enough talent coming in next year, that players like Fowler, Hart, and Black will have to beat out competition by incoming Freshmen ,to get playing time. (Embarrassment of Riches)
    I expect these guys back on the field... Means experience should give them an edge on some of the new guys.

    Even though we won the BCS Championship, it would have been much easier if we had the services of Fowler. We lost a part of our playbook that fit Jalston, like a glove...
    Our return game might have been more dynamic if we had a healthy Hart.
    Our receiving corp. would have been even better if we had Black on the field ect...

    There's gonna be some interesting battles leading up to our A-Day Game.
    I expect some of these battles will go on into the fall.

    Williams was basically healthy enough to play in the BCSCG, if we'd have needed him. We're going to need help in the DBs, so I think he'll be back in rotation. I also think you can't keep Fowler, Black and White out of the rotation. Remember Mel Kiper's (I think) remark - "Without Deandre White, Alabama doesn't have an answer." Of course, as usual, he was clueless and didn't realize just how deep we were at receiver. (I certainly didn't.) The one who concerns me is Hart. He's had to come back from ACL rehab twice. I've done it once and I just can't imagine having to do it twice. The formal recovery period is usually 7-10 months, but that's not really to 100%. Just ask Upshaw. So, has Hart run out of time? I don't know. I hope not. He was our first choice for PR and was looking damn good at it. Now, he has at least one Jones to fight his way past...

    It hits me that we're basically talking all skill guys here. We badly need some young OL to come through or these skill guys won't be helping us much...

    It's going to be scary how deep we'll be at the skill positions in 2013.

    RB: Yeldon, Fowler, Hart, Drake, Henry, Tenpenny, Tyren Jones

    WR: Cooper, Norwood, Christion Jones, Bell, White, Black, Cyrus Jones, Robert Foster, Shinn

    TE: Vogler, Howard

    Can anyone recall a Bama team that was that deep at the skill positions?

    Not really, but I wish we were a bit more proven at QB...

    This is what concerns me also. Its fun to talk about all of those skill guys but if you dont have the big butts to put a hat on a hat then all the skill in the world wont matter. I just hope we can open up some holes and pass block. We'll see.

    I think you meant Hightower instead of Upshaw didn't you? - but I share the same concern with Hart. Hopefully he can beat the odds and come back to contribute.
