The depth and talent of Alabama's defense might have been the best ever during the Nick Saban era a year ago, but that unit will have to be retooled in spots for 2016. 

Three Crimson Tide defenders - linebacker Reggie Raland, defensive lineman A'Shawn Robinson, defensive lineman Jarran Reed - are all projected to go in the first round of the NFL Draft. Most teams would be hard-pressed to find comparable talent to replace that trio, but Nick Saban has stockpiled plenty of four and five-star players that will soon get an opportunity.

We asked our staff to give us their opinion on the defensive player that has the best chance of breaking out next fall. Watch the video above to hear what each of them said.

Alabama will return to the practice field on Monday as spring camp continues in Tuscaloosa.
