This team is old school football so I’d replace Tua with Mac.

Can't image trying to cover this WR group. Josh Reed has an argument as well.

re: All-Saban Team
Feel like Surtain needs to be on there. But Dre and Minkah were great too.

Would take Calvin Ridley's college career over Jones's (but that probably has a lot to do with the OCs)

With that line... I'd go with Mac Jones.


And probably irv smith over oj.

re: All-Saban Team
what a lazy article. Now reading who wrote it, this makes sense Just say "All-Saban Team at Alabama." Saying he picked Marcus Spears because he works with him is a big to his LSU players.

How he could pick whoever Ryan Kelly is at Center over Ben Wilkerson is crazy. Also leaving Laron Landry, Stephen Peterman and Andrew Whitworth off this list reinforces how lame it is.

re: All-Saban Team
I think you have to replace one of the offensive tackles with Andrew Whitworth (All-SEC, 4x Pro Bowl, 3x All-Pro), of course. And one of the defensive linemen with Kyle Williams (All-American, 6x Pro Bowl, 1x All-Pro). Laron Landry could deserve mention, but those are strong safeties right there.

Other than that, strong list of great players.

The list really needs to be best players including pro career or just college career.

Jones was good but not great in college compared to some others.

McClain didnt cut it in the pros.

Josh Reed over Julio Jones.
Chad Lavalais over Marcus Spears

Also, this writer is probably going to be called a racist since Ryan Clark didn’t make the list. (Even though Ryan Clark got beat consistently in college)
