Alabama Football Offensive Depth Chart – Tight Ends

We asked a month ago and will keep asking – will the Crimson Tide utilize its tight ends more in 2020? As mentioned on the previous page, Carl Tucker and particularly Jahleel Billingsley are hybrids. They do not have to line up shoulder-to-shoulder with a tackle.

Tight ends and occasional H-backs have an important primary job – to block. The Alabama football staff also lines up offensive linemen as tight ends in short-yardage and goalline situations. Given the situational nature of the position, starters are less important than other positions.

Starter A – Miller Forristall

Starter B – Jahleel Billingsley

Rotational – Carl Tucker

Rotational – Cameron Latu

Backup – Major Tennison

Forristall has the edge based on experience. Billingsley’s versatility also gives him an advantage. But playing snaps may be nearly equally shared by Carl Tucker and Cameron Latu.

Alabama Football Offensive Depth Chart – Offensive Line

For the Crimson Tide, it will be about the five-best becoming the best offensive line in college football. There is no first-team competition for Alex Leatherwood, Deonte Brown, Landon Dickerson and Evan Neal. Nick Saban says he considers seven guys as O-Line starters. The interior of the offensive line is loaded with talent. Capable backups are needed at the tackle slots.

Left Tackle Starter – Alex Leatherwood

Left Tackle Backup – Kendall Randolph or TBD

Left Guard Starter – Deonte Brown

Left Guard Backup – Landon Dickerson

Center Starter – Landon Dickerson or Darrian Dalcourt or Chris Owens

Center Backup – Darrian Dalcourt or Chris Owens or Emil Ekiyor

Right Guard Starter – Emil Ekiyor

Right Guard Backup – Pierce Quick

Right Tackle Starter – Evan Neal

Right Tackle Backup –  Chris Owens or TBD

Note: Brown and Ekiyor may line up at either guard position.
