Here’s the news.
– The defensive linemen did a drill I have never seen them do before, seemingly simulating slant blitzes. You can see video of that drill below.
– In the outside linebacking corps, it appears that Ryan Anderson is serving as the back-up to Xzavier Dickson while Dillon Lee is staying behind Denzell Devall as he fights for playing time.
- Former Alabama running back Mark Ingram and defensive lineman Damion Square were in Tuscaloosa for practice today. Square is looking to be drafted in the 2013 NFL Draft while Ingram will enter another season with the New Orleans Saints in the fall, his first wearing No. 22, the number he wore with the Crimson Tide.
– As the media was exiting the practice facility, former Alabama running back Bobby Humphrey was entering the practice facility alongside his son Marlon and Marlon’s high school coach at Hoover High School in Hoover, Ala., Josh Niblett. Marlon has been ranked highly as a 2014 defensive back and is considering Alabama.
