Who Will Step Up in Alabama’s Secondary for 2018?
Probably the position with the least depth this spring is the Alabama secondary, where five players with starting experience left for the NFL this offseason.
Nick Saban, who coaches the secondary in practice, has even moved DeVonta Smith to defensive back some this spring to give him some reps on the defensive side of the ball. While that's not a permanent move, it does show you just how desperate the team is for bodies at that position. There will be more help coming in this summer, but the guys out there now will have a chance to get a leg up on the competition for the 2018 season.
Martin Houston broke down the competition this week during his show and shared some comments from Saban about the secondary. Check it out below and tell us who you think will be the top defensive back next season for the Tide.
