Alabama Football Defensive Line: B+
The Alabama defensive line gets deeper every week, and continues to control the line of scrimmage against its opponents. Senior Justin Eboigbe (five tackles, half sack, pass breakup, QB hurry) was very active once again, and should be shooting up draft boards barring a clean bill of health.
Tim Keenan III added four tackles and a hurry from his nose tackle position, while Jaheim Oatis and Tim Smith notched two tackles apiece.
The Bama D-Line seemingly has new contributors break out in every game, and redshirt junior Jah-Marien Latham emerged against Arkansas. After making some big plays earlier in the season against Mississippi State, Latham might’ve topped that performance on homecoming. He recorded a career-high three tackles and dragged Jefferson down for a solo sack.
Damon Payne rounded out the rotation for a group that has been impressive all year and is rapidly improving.
Alabama Football Linebackers: B+
The Bama linebackers have been all over the field all season, and this was a relatively quiet game only by their own standard. Redshirt sophomore signal caller Deontae Lawson led the group with six tackles. Fellow inside linebacker Trezmen Marshall added to what has been a very good individual season with five tackles and a sack.
Senior outside linebacker Quandarrius Robinson had a big game both defensively and on special teams, delivering six total tackles and a tackle for loss.
Senior Chris Braswell (five tackles) and junior Dallas Turner (three tackles, half sack, two hurries) continued to provide an imposing presence on the edge.
