Christmas gifts for Alabama football players

Najee Harris: An honorary plaque

Najee has improved as a total running back all season, but his skills as a receiver are off the charts. Even with the best receiving corps of all time over the past two seasons, Harris has been able to see his role increase. He has wanted to be called “Ryde Out” all season, and he has earned the title.

After three receiving touchdowns against Florida in the SEC Championship game, Najee is officially in the club. This plaque would commemorate that honor.

Mac Jones: A Joker mask

This has nothing to do with the Alabama football season, but it would still be fun. Mac considers himself to be the Joker from Batman, and a mask is a perfect gift in 2020. He might actually have one of these by now, but adding another to the closet wouldn’t be a bad thing.

Jaylen Waddle: A proper NFL quarterback

Jaylen Waddle will be a legend for the Crimson Tide, but he has witnessed some shortcomings over his collegiate career. Between playing behind three all-timers and an ankle injury, his stats are nowhere near where you would expect them to be. However, he still has a bright NFL future ahead of him. I just hope that he is drafted by a team with a strong quarterback. That will give him the best shot at seeing his talents used. Plenty of wide receivers have struggled in weak offenses, so a quality NFL quarterback would help fix that.

Bryce Young: A crystal ball

Bryce Young hasn’t had a great season, but he is still the future in Tuscaloosa. A crystal ball would help him look into the future and get the motivation necessary to keep working at his craft.
