Dylan Moses will. of course, lead this unit. That fact alone means the Crimson Tide linebackers will be among the top in the SEC. Who lines up next to Moses inside might change over the spring and summer, but starting out, Josh McMillon is the logical inside partner.

The big, spring question for this unit is who starts opposite Chris Allen at outside linebacker. The candidates are several, including King Mwikuta, Kevin Harris and possibly Christian Harris sliding outside. Three freshmen, Chris Braswell, Drew Sanders and Will Anderson will battle the spring for fall practice reps and playing time this fall. Each of the three have a chance to start next fall. The fourth freshman LB, Quandarrius Robinson should not be overlooked but he is a summer enrollee.

First Unit in Bold

  • Inside Linebacker: Dylan Moses and Josh McMillon; Christian Harris and Shane Lee or Ale Kaho
  • Outside Linebacker: Chris Allen and King Mwukuta or Kevin Harris; Chris Braswell or Drew Sanders or Will Anderson
