A review of our selections of the top Alabama players on offense in Saban Era

Best Alabama players on offense in Saban Era would make a formidable attack unit

Alabama has dominated the college football landscape in the nine years since Nick Saban has been coaching the Crimson Tide, and most would surmise Bama’s success in winning four national championships is primarily because of great defensive teams.

To be sure, Alabama has been outstanding on the defensive side, but the offense has also ranked among the best in the most successful of those seasons.

Our series examining the best Alabama players at each position in the Saban Era includes an extraordinary group on offense. Although we can appreciate differences of opinion regarding these selections, our choices of the top offensive players at each position seems to be reasonable.

Here’s a recap of how we saw it:

WIDE RECEIVERS – Amari Cooper and Julio Jones

TACKLES – Cyrus Kouandjio and D.J. Fluker

GUARDS – Chance Warmack and Mike Johnson

CENTER – Barrett Jones

TIGHT END – O.J. Howard


TAILBACK – Derrick Henry

FULLBACK – Jalston Fowler

PLACEKICKER – Leigh Tiffin

KICKOFF RETURN – Javier Arenas
