Poll Results and the Traitor's Draft

New, 2 comments

Two weeks ago we wanted to know if you guys were happy about Jim Wells's decision to remain with (return to) the Alabama baseball program or if you just didn't care. Out of 187 votes cast, it looks like you guys just don't care:

This week's poll has to do with the so-called "Traitor's Draft." PB started it, while Orson, SMQ, and plenty of others followed suit. The premise was to pick players from other teams in your conference that you wish played on your team. Simple enough, right? Well, being the gluttons for punishment that we are, we decided to make things a little more complicated and limit ourselves to players that are from Alabama but chose to go out of state to play their college ball. Here's a list of noteworthy Alabama natives playing outside the state. Be sure to vote for one in the poll, and next week we'll tally up who you guys want most, and give our own picks as well.

Chevis Jackson
CB - LSU

Hometown: Mobile, AL
Jackson led the Tigers last season with 14 pass break ups while recording 46 tackles and 2 picks. One of the best corners in the league.
Titus Brown
DE - Mississippi State

Hometown: Tuscaloosa, AL
2nd Team All-SEC last year after recording 7.5 sacks and 7 TFLs.
Reshard Langford
SS - Vanderbilt

Hometown: Tanner, AL
Was an All-SEC Freshman Team selection before spending most of last season battling injuries. Still started all 12 while recording 51 tackles, 3 picks, and 4 PBUs.
Captain Munnerlyn
CB - South Carolina

Hometown: Mobile, AL
Projected starter at CB for the 'Cocks this season. Started five games last season as a true freshman, and recorded 36 stops, five PBUs, and 2 picks. Would also make a good "All-Name Team" selection.
Earl Bennett
WR - Vanderbilt

Hometown: Birmingham, AL
First Team All-SEC the past two years. Needs only 48 more receptions to become the SEC's all time career leader. Caught 82 for 1146 yards and 6 TDs last year.
Chris Nickson
QB - Vanderbilt

Hometown: Brundidge, AL
Led the team in rushing last year, gaining 694 on 146 carries for 9 TDs, but had a 15-13 TD-INT ratio.Word out of spring practice is he's making better decisions, though, and could mature into a quality QB.
