Alabama Football Studs

Jaylen Waddle

An absolute “no brainer,” Waddle is the most dangerous and exciting player in the nation, hands down. His propensity to make plays, whether high pointing the ball over two defenders, or making defenders miss with his uncanny juking ability, is must-watch TV.

When Alabama prepared to receive the opening kickoff, the TV analyst mentioned new Missouri head coach Eli Drinkwitz told him they would not kick to the uber-talented junior.

Offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian has plenty of great players on offense. Making sure Jaylen touches the ball in any capacity is a must.

After his career-high eight catches for 134 yards and two scores, it is safe to say the explosive Houston native is poised for a breakout season.

Najee Harris

Tying his career-high in touchdowns last night with three, Harris showed his determination to become the best back in college football. The running game smoothly flowed whenever he carried the pigskin.

He finished with a professional 106 yards from scrimmage (17 rushes-98 yards). His 98 yards moved him into 14th place all-time on the Alabama career rushing list with 2,475 yards.
