Biggest takeaway from Alabama’s A-Day spring game? Not the QBs
A-Day and spring practice are behind us, but there are still plenty of questions to answer with Alabama football. The players are away from the team to focus on finishing classes, recovering and personal development before summer workouts begin. Here we’ll take a look at a question each day. Check out our archives here.
What’s your biggest takeaway from A-Day?
It has to be the first-team defense, honestly. A lot will be made of the quarterbacks, but the defense will always be the story for Alabama football while Nick Saban is around.
Alabama’s first-team offensive line couldn’t block the first-team defensive line, but luckily for the Crimson Tide, it likely won’t face a front seven that good or better all season.
Alabama lost its entire secondary, potential first-round draft picks at linebacker and defensive line, yet it will have a unit in 2018 that is just as fearsome as past groups.
The front seven features potential stars such as Raekwon Davis, Isaiah Buggs, Mack Wilson, Dylan Moses, Anfernee Jennings, Christian Miller and Terrell Lewis. Up-and-coming players such as Quinnen Williams also will have an opportunity to contribute.
We don’t know exactly what the secondary will look like, but it played well on Saturday.
For anyone thinking Alabama would take a step back on defense, think again. If this unit can stay healthy, look for Alabama to field another elite defense in 2018.
