Get the tight ends more involved in the offense:

Perhaps the most underappreciated aspect of the Alabama Football team has been the production they’ve gotten out of the tight ends. Amari Niblack, CJ Dippre, and Robbie Ouzts have combined for 20 catches for 363 yards and three touchdowns averaging 18 yards per catch. This tight end room may be the most talented tight end group for the Alabama Football team since OJ Howard was with the Crimson Tide. Using the Tight Ends more often in the passing game could help Jalen Milroe as they’ve been extremely reliable for the Alabama offense and could be used as a security outlet. If the Alabama Football team starts lining up in more two and three tight ends it could provide the Alabama offense with interesting looks as it could provide advantages in both the rushing game as well as the passing attack. The speed and run-after-catch ability of Niblack paired with the size of Ouzts and Dippre could provide for matchup nightmares against linebackers and safeties in coverage. The two and three tight ends could provide a surprise for opposing defensive coordinators as the Alabama Football team has rarely put this look on film so opposing teams won’t prepare too much for it.
