Bold predictions for Alabama football’s A Day Game

4. Jaylen Moody will be a bright spot on defense

Alabama football returns all starters from last year’s team except for three. Fans will see many familiar faces, but Jaylen Moody will be a new starter. With Dylan Moses heading to the NFL, Moody will be looking to fill in his shoes.

Moody has experience with the Tide, but he needs to prove himself as a potential starter. This will be a great chance to do just that. With both sides looking to use running backs heavily, Moody will be able to stop the run between the tackles.

Moody might have some incoming competition at inside linebacker. Henry To’o To’o is in the transfer portal, and he might be able to come to Alabama without having to sit out. If that is the case, you would have to think that he would contend for the starting job. This is a great chance for Moody to show coaches and fans what he can do as a starting inside linebacker.

Thanks to his experience, Moody knows Alabama’s system. He simply has to rely on his instincts and make plays across the field. He will do just that on Saturday with the starters, and fans will see just how hard of a hitter he can be.
