Top returning players

Alabama saw three key players taken in the first round of the 2019 NFL Draft. Defensive tackle Quinnen Williams went No. 3 to the Jets, offensive tackle Jonah Williams went No. 11 to the Bengals, and running back Josh Jacobs went No. 24 to the Raiders. 

But the Crimson Tide lost another big name to transfer: Jalen Hurts. The quarterback transferred to Oklahoma after the 2018 season for his final year of eligibility.

So who are the top stars returning for Alabama:

Quarterback Tua Tagovailoa had a record-setting year as a sophomore in 2018, throwing for 3,966 yards, 43 touchdowns, and 6 interceptions while finishing second in Heisman voting behind Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray.

Wide receiver Jerry Jeudy returns for his junior year after racking up 1,315 yards and 14 touchdowns receiving last season.

Defensive end LaBryan Ray had 39 tackles and 2 ½ sacks last year and will have big shoes to fill in the absence of Quinnen Williams.

Preseason ranking

We have Alabama sitting at No. 2 in our preseason Top 25. Here's that breakdown:

2. Alabama

Nick Saban hasn’t gone two consecutive years without a national title since the 2013-14 seasons. Whenever there are doubts about the Tide’s dynasty ending, Alabama seemingly returns to the top. But for the first time since that 2009 title, Saban’s bunch has competition as the sport’s dominant program. With QB Tau Tagovailoa, WR Jerry Judy and LB Dylan Moses among the returning stars, another ‘Bama-Clemson showdown might be on the way.
