Byron Young - DL - Raiders - 4 Tackles

Year one in the NFL was a disappointment for former Alabama Football star Byron Young. Young recorded just four tackles in six games played in 2023. There's been a regime change in Las Vegas with changes at Head Coach and General Manager so Young will need to prove himself to the new regime to stay in Las Vegas

Jordan Battle - Safety - Bengals - 71 tackles, 2 sacks, and 1 INT

Jordan Battle has been one of the most impressive rookies defensively this season and has been a massive piece of the Bengals' defense. According to Pro Football Focus Jordan Battle is the highest-graded rookie run defender with a rating of 81.3. Battle was tasked with an impossible mission replacing an All-Pro in Jessie Bates as a rookie but, he's seemingly been up to task every step of the way. The Alabama Football Alumni has recorded 71 tackles, two sacks, an interception, and five pass deflections really growing into a key piece for this Bengals defense. Jordan Battle will be a key piece in year two as the Bengals look to return to the Super Bowl.

Cameron Latu - Tight End - 49ers

The Alabama Football tight end was selected by the 49ers in the third round in this year's draft. Latu has dealt with a knee injury that has cost him his rookie season as he's spent the year on injured reserve. Cameron Latu will be rooting on his teammates as he's a win away from a Super Bowl ring.
