Tight Ends: B

Heading into the game, Alabama football knew that it needed more from the tight ends to thrive in Atlanta. With the offensive line struggling and the depth at running back depleted, other position groups need to step up on offense.

Latu and Billingsley are a great tandem, but they haven’t had a significant impact in the same game. The same can be said after this game. The tight ends only combined for three catches. However, they did better as blockers, which was just as valuable for the Crimson Tide.
