Urban Meyer famously compared facing NFL teams to "preparing for Alabama every week."


For fun, I compiled a depth chart of Alabama players drafted in the last 4 years. Guys who theoretically could have been teammates. 




QB: Tua Tagovailoa, Mac Jones

RB: Josh Jacobs, Bo Scarbrough, Damien Harris, Najee Harris

WR: Calvin Ridley, Henry Ruggs, Jerry Jeudy, Jaylen Waddle, DeVonta Smith

TE: Irv Smith

T: Jonah Williams, Jedrick Wills, Alex Leatherwood

G: Ross Piersbacher, Deonte Brown

C: Bradley Bozeman, Landon Dickerson




DL: Da’Shawn Hand, Joshua Frazier, Daron Payne, Isaiah Buggs, Quinnen Williams, Raekwon Davis, Christian Baramore

Edge: Anfernee Jennings, Terrell Lewis

MLB: Rashaan Evans Shaun Dion Hamilton, Christian Miller, Mac Wilson

CB: Anthony Averett, Trevon Diggs, Patrick Surtain II

S: Minkah Fitzpatrick, Ronnie Harrison, Deionte Thomas, Xavier McKinney




LS: Thomas Fletcher

P: J.K. Scott


I understand that when people say "Alabama could beat the Jaguars", it sounds silly. But if you got to put together a combination of Alabama teammates who theoretically could have played together given the four year span, maybe? That offense would play in the NFL. The defense is so-so in the linebacker group, but thats a solid secondary. Looks like maybe a 6-8 win team in the NFL. 


If the Jags, or Jets, had a road game in Tuscaloosa this week, they win because the freshman need that development still, there are guys on that roster not getting drafted. But I'd think Bama could keep it within two or three scores. It wouldn't be a 63-0 thumping. 


It'd be closer than Iowa vs. Maryland :)

Evan Neal

Jameson Williams

Phidarian Mathis

John Metchie

Josh Jobe


My Top 5 ALA prospects for this draft. Next year, though, Will Anderson could go No. 1 overall.
