Disclaimer: This is not an official University of Alabama document. The depth chart is taken from individual practice and game observations, and is color-coded. Seniors are in black, juniors previously on the team are in green, junior college transfers in their junior year are in purple, junior college transfers in their sophomore year are in yellow, sophomores previously on the team are in blue, redshirt freshmen are in cyan, and true freshmen are in red. NOTE: Because Alabama will operate from a three-wide set as often as not, 12 offensive positions are listed.
The only thing stopping the Predictions Dept. from a 10-win first week was the rain, which washed out the Florida-Idaho game. Upsets happen, but it's hard to imagine Florida losing that game no matter the weather or any other circumstance. While Florida and Idaho decide what to do about a replacement game, the rest of the conference moves on to Week 2, which is highlighted by -- if you can call it that -- Missouri going on the road to face a Toledo team that is tougher than the average mid-major.
Alabama's first spring practice is in the books. Given the way the 2018 season ended, there will probably be greater fan scrutiny on 2019 spring practices than in recent years. Here's our look at 10 key positions headed into spring, which could see more shuffling of personnel than expected given the turnover in position assistant jobs and the new perspective first-year assistants might bring to their evaluations.

Prior to the season, fans and pundits alike circled the Alabama-Georgia game as one of the potentially more important and most interesting games of the college football season. Nothing has changed. Well, almost nothing. Alabama dropped its third-week game, 43-37 to Ole Miss, which spoiled the aura of this game a bit as a potential prelude to a final four rematch – or even a rematch in the SEC Championship Game. Instead of both meeting up as undefeated teams, Alabama comes in with a blemish on its record and the knowledge that a second loss on the season here likely ends whatever hopes the Crimson Tide has or playing for a national championship.
Putting nine members of the same team into the same NFL draft class is no small feat – but it's one that Alabama might top in a year's time. Casting an eye towards the 2014 NFL Draft, Alabama fans might see as many as 14 or 15 Alabama players taken. A lot will be determined, obviously, by the junior seasons of some of Alabama's draft-eligible underclassmen. From the senior class alone, Alabama could see 8 players called to the podium.
There must be a reason Alabama head coach Nick Saban likes the word “finish” so much. Perhaps it’s because in each of his five seasons at Alabama, the Crimson Tide has gotten off to honor-roll starts – but hasn’t always finished the season on a similar level.

Drew Lock's breakout season at quarterback has triggered some hardcore dreaming among Missouri fans; In a transitional SEC East, the Gamecocks look like runner-up contenders simply because their fundamentals are better than those of most competitors; It's a new day in Knoxville as Jeremy Pruitt takes over as head coach, and if he's anywhere near the emerging talent many believe him to be, the Vols just got better no matter how many players they lose from last year's squad; Unfortunately for the Commodores, the method of success in Nashville is typically to schedule a competitive team every four years, when a strong defense moves up en masse from the junior class.
