ArDarius Stewart Talks Alabama Fall Practice, Wide Receiving Depth
The Alabama offense has evolved in 10 years under head coach Nick Saban, but the passing game has taken on a bigger role since Lane Kiffin arrived two years ago.
As the 2016 season approaches, the Crimson Tide could roll out its best passing attack yet with the weapons it has on the outside. The team's top three pass-catchers return and a number of younger players will provide a lot of depth at wide receiver.
Junior ArDarius Stewart, who caught 63 passes in 2015, welcomes increased talent at the position.
"My job is just to do the best I can when I'm in the game," Stewart said. "We do have a lot of depth, and we're just try to get those guys rolling because that's what we need in games. The more you, the easier it will be."
The production of the passing game will rely on the quarterback, which is still unknown after a week of practice, but Stewart said he only has one thing to worry about.
"The job of the receiver is just to catch the ball. How it comes, it's not up to me who throws it. I'm just there to catch it."
Alabama returns to the practice field for the second practice of the day on Thursday night. The first scrimmage will be held on Saturday afternoon, and it's closed to the public.
