Alabama "might be the next expansion team in the NFL"

Last week WKU head coach Willie Taggart made tongue-in-cheek comments that Alabama "might be the next expansion team in the NFL" and could even beat a few pro teams as well. I am sure just like Saban's smackdown of the media's belittling of the Hilltoppers, it was a strategic move to inspire the players.

But it got me thinking. Imagine if Alabama had been able to keep their players from the past several years. What would that team look like?

Unfortunately, the NFL is a quarterback league so there might be some depth issues at QB and WR. Kickers would be an issue too. But check out that DEFENSE!
