Alabama Football Offensive Line: A

The Alabama offensive line is looking to return to a physically dominant style under Rees and offensive line coach Eric Wolford. The Tide got back to recruiting massive offensive linemen in the class of 2023, and some of those recruits could be on the field as soon as this fall.

Junior tackle JC Latham is one of the best in the nation at his position, and figures to spearhead the offensive line. Seniors Seth McLaughlin and Darrian Dalcourt will lead the interior offensive line, but sophomore guard Tyler Booker is likely the best pro prospect of the bunch.

The Crimson Tide is looking to fill one more tackle spot, and the candidates include redshirt freshman Elijah Pritchett and true freshman Kadyn Proctor. Pritchett started at left tackle on A-Day, and did not always look ready for the speed of the Bama edge rushers. Proctor was one of the gems of the 2023 recruiting class, and could be ready to step up if Pritchett falters.

In this case, it would make sense to move Latham over to the blind side and let the freshman play right tackle.
