Nick Saban has long-since eschewed the practice of publicly disclosing depth charts, for a variety of reasons, but nevertheless coaching staffs must have a general roster breakdown in place in order to divvy up practice reps and to determine who will take the field when the front-line players go down. Call them organizational groupings or whatever you wish, but either way with spring practice now in the rear view mirror we'll take our best shot at a post-spring depth chart as we head into the summer workouts and the offseason strength and conditioning program.

Instead of merely ranking players at positions, however, what we try to do below is come up with a working overview of the personnel moves that would actually be made in the face of attrition. Barrett Jones, for example, is listed as a back-up at three different positions (and frankly could see the field at any of the five offensive line spots, if necessary). By using this methodology, we're hoping to get a better view of the personnel changes as they would play on out on the field, as opposed to merely rating players overall at a single position.

Also, please note the depth chart listed below only includes players currently on campus, meaning that the 2012 signees who will arrive this summer have not been added. Clearly some of those players will crack the depth chart later this fall, but in the interest of attempting to attain an accurate snapshot of where the roster stands right now, they have been omitted for the time being.
