Alabama Crimson Tide offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland is heading north to join the Philadelphia Eagles, and now the search begins for a replacement. This could actually be the best time for it, with the Tide replacing Chance Warmack, D.J. Fluker and Barrett Jones and breaking in new talent like 2013 signees Leon Brown and Grant Hill. The new players will be adjusting to Nick Saban’s system already, so learning the blocking scheme of a new coach will be part of that. Names will begin to float in the coming days, from both the college ranks and the NFL. Alabama has the resources, talent level and the facilities to compete with any program – college or pro – in the country for coaching talent, so Nick Saban will be able to pick from among the best.
It didn't seem like much of a secret that Alabama wasn't thrilled with its backup quarterback situation. Watching AJ McCarron take the field up three touchdowns late in the game against Notre Dame signified as much. Why even risk the junior quarterback who could lead you to three straight national championships?

Bama kept the Stoutland stuff mostly quiet through NSD and signed the No. 1 class. Grantham's interviews were well known, Georgia stumbled.

The NFL draft is right around the corner, and as we say goodbye to national signing day, we're turning our attention back to players who just left the SEC. Following the 2012 season, the SEC was gutted by a tremendous amount of players looking to make futures for themselves in the NFL. And when you take a look at mock drafts, you can tell that the conference is losing a lot of very good talent in 2013.
