I feel like Alabama will have fewer players on preseason lists than in the last few years. I think expectations in general will be a little lower for Alabama this year going into the season. Might be a bit refreshing as a fan (and for the players and coaches) not to be a consensus favorite (or even a non-consensus favorite) to win it all.
With that said, I could see the following guys make a 1st or 2nd team list:
Trey Depriest - LB
Landon Collins - S
Christion Jones - All-Purpose
TJ Yeldon - RB
^^All of these guys made some post-season all-SEC list for 2013 and have a very good chance to be on preseason lists.
Other guys who could make lists:
Amari Cooper - WR
A'Shawn Robinson - DL
OJ Howard - TE (this would be a little more of a hype pick than anything, but people are in love with this size and athleticism)
The absense of OL candidates is troubling, but I just don't see any guys who will make a pre-season 1st or 2nd team list.
