NFL.com's College Football 24/7 thinks that the Alabama Crimson Tide have the best defensive 'triplets' in the SEC for 2014. Here is what they had to say:
quote:

SEC Alabama
DL A'Shawn Robinson, LB Trey DePriest, SS Landon Collins

Had Robinson not been utterly dominant as a true freshman last year, the nod might have gone elsewhere. But consider this: the 320-pound defensive tackle is the first true freshman under Saban at Alabama to lead the team in sacks (5.5), and he did it from a tackle position, not at end. Collins is the best pro prospect in the league among defensive backs, and is primed for a huge junior season after leading the team in both interceptions and pass breakups last year. He also ranked behind only first-round pick C.J. Mosley in tackles with 70. As for DePriest, he might not be the spectacular playmaker that some UA fans have come to expect from the middle linebacker position, but he is a steady performer who will effectively handle pre-snap calls and checks for the entire front seven.

DePriest might have missed it, but Collins didn't.
