    Really loaded on defense LB and secondary.

    The Alabama Crimson Tide are always one of the most talented teams in all of college football, and for the 2011 season, that will not change a bit. Nick Sabam has put together a perennial powerhouse in Alabama, and even losing as many big name players as they did (four first round picks), they are still primed for a deep run.

    Trent Richardson (Junior), RB, 5’11″ 220
    Keep an eye on Richardson as a potential Heisman trophy candidate. After pairing with Mark Ingram the last two years, Richardson is ready for a full load and could be one of the nation’s most powerful and dominant running backs. In fact, I wouldn’t be shocked to see him finish a fully healthy season with more than 2,000 yards on the ground, and I would put him right behind Andrew Luck as the top Heisman candidate as of right now. This is a guy who is relentless, and not just on the field, but off. Richardson is an absolute beast in the weight room, and consistently puts in the time and effort. He averaged over six yards per carry last year, and really developed as a receiver as well. He is one of the best players in the country, and has the potential to be a top 10 pick in the 2012 draft if he declares. He might be the best RB prospect to come along since Adrian Peterson in the class of 2007.
