Alabama Football Players to Watch 2021
Bryce Young – QB
All eyes this season will be on the true-sophomore quarterback Young, filling the void left by Mac Jones who was drafted No. 15 overall in the NFL Draft. Jones won the National Championship with Alabama last year. Young is one of the most touted quarterbacks to go under center for the Crimson Tide, more so than Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, and Jones.
Young was with the team last year, appearing in seven games where he completed 13 passes for 156 yards and a touchdown. A dual-threat quarterback, Young had nine rush attempts last season, totaling -23 yards.
Brian Robinson Jr. – RB
Back for his super-senior season (fifth year), Robinson is now RB1 with Najee Harris in the NFL. The running back hasn’t eclipsed 500 yards in a season yet in his career but got close with 483 last season. He’s got a lot of production to fill from the backfield, but may not see as much use due to Young’s abilities with his legs.
Like quarterbacks, Alabama has turned out a number of professional running backs, and Robinson hopes to be the next. Look for him to really pour it on this year now that he’s in the limelight.
John Metchie – WR
Alabama had two wide receivers get drafted in the first round of the NFL Draft this year, but only one of them had more yards or touchdowns than Metchie, and that was DeVonta Smith. Sure, Jaylen Waddle may have passed him if he hadn’t been injured, but Metchie stepped up in his absence. The true-junior totaled 916 yards on 53 catches, six of which were touchdowns.
This is Metchie’s time to shine as he figures to be a major part of the offense. Looking to be another wide receiver drafted from the Crimson Tide into the NFL, Metchie will have the attention of his quarterback and defenses alike.
Both teams are playing their first game of the season and fans can’t wait to get their first look at their team. While the Crimson Tide are widely expected to win this game, the Hurricanes view this matchup as a chance to make a strong statement to the rest of the nation.
