Are You Concerned With Alabama’s Defensive Back Field in Lieu of the Recent Transfers? [Poll]
It's been a pretty hectic off-season for the Crimson Tide, from legal issues that were dropped to players deciding to transfer. Speaking of transfers, another player has decided to leave the Alabama program: Kendall Sheffield. With yet another defensive back gone from the roster, the Tide's depth at that position is becoming increasingly thinner.
This has caused a bit of concern from many of the Tide faithful. Obviously there's talent all over Nick Saban's roster, but Alabama will be forced to play in their Nickel and Dime packages quite a bit this season, just like they have in the past, and that requires quite a bit of depth in the secondary.
With the departure of Maurice Smith, Kendall Sheffield, and Shawn Burgess-Becker this off-season, it comes to no surprise that Nick Saban and defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt have some shifting around to do when figuring out which players will see the field in the secondary this season.
So does this recent attrition concern you about the Tide, or will the Nick Saban math (addition by subtraction) become prevalent and give Alabama a better chance at repeating as national champions?
