New, 41 comments

Wanna see an offense that would make even NFL defensive coordinators get shaky?

NCAA Football: Louisiana State at Alabama John David Mercer-USA TODAY Sports

Over the past few weeks, we’ve polled all you readers on the players who should make up the “All-Saban Team” of Alabama players since the 2007 season. Things got a bit heated with the quarterbacks and running backs, and the moderator (me) wasn’t always totally open for pure democracy. But hey, so goes things.

If you want to go back and look at the arguments presented for each and every deserving Crimson Tide player, whether because you missed the voting or just like going down memory lane, here’s a link to the compendium.

Without further preamble, here’s your depth chart, as decided by you:

Quarterbacks

1st team-Tua Tagovailoa

2nd team- A.J. McCarron

3rd team- Jalen Hurts

Running backs

1st team- Derrick Henry, Mark Ingram

2nd team- Trent Richardson, Eddie Lacy

Wide Receivers

1st team- Julio Jones, Amari Cooper, Jerry Jeudy

2nd team- Calvin Ridley, DeVonta Smith

Tight Ends

1st team- O.J. Howard

2nd team- Irv Smith, Jr.

Fullback/H-back

1st team- Jalston Fowler

Left Tackle

1st team- Jonah Williams

2nd team- Cyrus Kouandjio

Left Guard

1st team- Chance Warmack

2nd team- Ross Pierschbacher

Center

1st team- Ryan Kelly

2nd team- Bradley Bozeman

Right Guard

1st team- Barrett Jones

2nd team- Mike Johnson

Right Tackle

1st team- Andre Smith

2nd team- D.J. Fluker


So let’s see, that’s 11 NFL first round draft picks and 4 more second round picks, while two of the QBs and two of the receivers haven’t even gone to the pros yet (Tua and Jeudy are 1st round locks). Collectively, they have two Heisman trophies, three Maxwell awards, two Doak Walker awards, two Biletnikoff awards, an Outland award, and two Rimington awards. And you guys even left out another Outland award winner in left tackle Cam Robinson.

Name another team in all of the NCAA that has that kind of hardware spread out across that many positions in only 12 years. And this is just the offense.

Roll Tide!
