Alabama Football: 2014 Spring Practice, A-Day, and Pro Day

TJ Yeldon hopes for a big junior season. - USA TODAY Sports

Ah, Spring. When a young man's fancy lightly turns to thoughts of love baseball spring football.

With no apologies to Alfred, Lord Tennyson, springtime has evolved into the pre-preseason and previews for the coming football season. There will be many interesting position battles to follow including offensive line, quarterback, and cornerback among others. It will also be the first chance to see the early enrollees like Cameron Robinson, Tony Brown, and David Cornwell.

Alabama will hold their first practice on March 15. As has been the pattern, practice will be interrupted by the University of Alabama's spring break March 21-28, resuming the following week.

The annual A-Day Game is the fifteenth and final practice of the spring. It will take place on Saturday, April 19 with kickoff at 1 pm CT. The game will be televised by ESPNU. Replays will likely be available on espn3.com.

Admission will once again be free to the public. Traffic and parking will follow regular game day guidelines. More information will be available on uagameday.com as the date draws nearer.

RBR SPRING COVERAGE

Over the next several weeks, RollBamaRoll will cover practice news and notes as well as breakdowns of every position beginning this week with the defensive line and the offensive line. We will cover returning players, newcomers, position changes, position battles, schemes, and everything else Bama football.

RBR coverage schedule:

  • March 3rd-7th: DL and OL
  • March 10th-14th: DB and LB
  • March 17th-21st: QB, WR, and RB

PRO DAY

Alabama will hold their Pro Day on March 12 at the Hank Crisp Indoor Facility for all graduating Crimson Tide players who want to show their stuff to NFL coaches. This will be a great opportunity for guys who did not get invited to the NFL Combine like Kenny Bell and Tana Patrick to catch a scout's eye.

This event has been televised in recent years and there is a good chance it will be aired again this year.
