So thank you Draft fans and Patriot fans alike, and mostly thank you to all the fans of my books and website worldwide.

College Football.

Alabama Vs. Louisville.

By TOM

I cannot believe the college season has started already. The hardest part of the season is getting the players to watch on each team. It tends to take me longer to get the prospects right than watch the game. So here is a beginning. A few teams and places to start. I'm going to try and get Michigan-ND up, but it's already late.

This is just not a fair fight. "I think a lot of progress has been made, I think, you know, we have a lot of new faces. Guys have to learn how to play together, which they made improvement in. Communication is something that we’ve improved dramatically," Saban said. "I don’t think that we’ll know exactly how they’re able to perform until they go out there and make the adjustments that they need to make and see if we can make the plays that we need to make, but I’ve been not satisfied with the progress, but certainly pleased with the improvement that we’ve been able to make." The Talent on Alabama is crazy.

They have four or five Edge guys that would be the best edge guys on almost any other team. "They’re obviously a really good team. They have a ton of big, physical athletes. Especially they’re quarterback seems like he’s a really good player," Saban said. "I know obviously I don’t watch a whole lot of film of the offense, but they’re defense looks really good and they have a lot of really good players. Especially on the D-line they have some big, fast physical guys and they’re going to present a problem to us if we don’t take care of our business." Louisville is screwed. 

#33 * Anfernee Jennings, LB (Jr., 6-3, 262)- Super athlete who got hurt to end his season last year. When I was able to focus on him on Tape, I was so much more impressed with him.

#99 * Raekwon Davis, DL (Jr., 6-7, 308)- He is just an impossible physical talent. He is one of the most impressive physical freaks I have ever seen. He is a top three DL in the best DL Draft I have ever seen.

#47 *Christian Miller- LB Jr 6-4, 230- Staying in school and adding weight and strength was a good move for him. He is another edge guy in their impossible depth. He has to show he can stay healthy.

#24 Terrell Lewis- 6-5, 254, EDGE, Alabama- He is super athlete Edge guy who is going to get his shot this season. He is better in coverage than most of the other Edge guys for Alabama. So he likely won't have as many sacks as you'd like, but he will still be very effective.

#30 Mack Wilson- 6-2, 230, OLB, Alabama- They are counting on him to play off the line. He is one of the most well thought of guys most of us have never heard of. I will be watching him closely tonight. 

=======

#73 Jonah Williams, OL (Jr., 6-5, 305)- When he stays low, he can stone the big DE at the line. Nice job shoving the D-end inside, and dancing out wide to knock the blitzing DB off his feet. Nice job getting his hands on the OLB, and powering him back on inside runs. Terrific seal blocker on runs away. Good explosion on short yardage. He can block through the DE, and go and hit the OLB on the 2nd level.

#66 Lester Cotton SR- 6-4, 324,- He is Just Another Guy if you ask me. He should go on Day Three, and if he stays healthy play for a long time in the NFL.

#71 Ross Pierschabacher- OC, 6-4, 303- He is a big fat OG, with a giant bubble butt. He looks better moving backwards than forward.

#34 *Damien Harris- RB, Jr, 5-11, 216- I like how he never seems to run in a straight line, unless he is putting on the jets. I love how he bobs and weaves through a defense, and makes defenders miss just enough for his powerful legs to run through. I like how he never seems to run in a straight line, unless he is putting on the jets.

#9 Jaylen Smith- WR 6-4, 219 RS-Sr-  He can turn the short In, into a long TD. He ran for a 55-Yard TD against BC that got called back for a Hold last year. He has reliable hands, but has trouble staying in the game. Great strong hands that seem to catch everything. Knows how to use his size.

Nice receiver out in the flat. He is big and strong. And he can be slippery in space. Very nice straight-arm to knock the DB down. He is good at catching the odd pass. Jackson gets him the ball in a lot of odd ways, and he always seems ready for it. Great catcher through contact.

Overview: Big, physical wide receiver ... has caught 116 passes for 1,955 yards and 14 touchdowns in his career ... played in 36 career games ... averaging 16.9 yards per reception during his career.

#5 *Seth Dawkins- 6-3, 218, Jr, WR- He is the next young big WR for Louisville. If he has a great season, he could come out as a true Junior. He has the size and talent to make his mark this season. Alabama has lost all three of their starting Corners. With his size, if his QB has some time, he could do some damage.

#72 Lukayus McNeil,- ORG, 6-6, 328, RS SR- Gigantic ORG who is unlikely to come out early as well. He has to match up on Raekwon Davis. This is not going to be a pretty game. He is likely to come out this season if he plays well in this game, and beyond.

Overview: Versatile offensive lineman who can play both tackle and guard positions ... athletic, intense performer who has started 34 career games.

2017: Started all 13 games ... made starts at both tackle and guard ... started 12 games at offensive tackle and made a start at guard versus Virginia ... helped the team average 245.1 yards per game on the ground.

#77 Linwood Foy- OLT, 6-4, 301, RS SR- He is the starting OLT this year for Louisville. Alabama is going to be coming after him. He has to stand up to the speed and strength they can throw at OLs on the edge. He is not likely to come out this season either.

2017: Appeared in five games on the offensive line.

2016: Appeared in four games before suffering a season-ending injury ... made his collegiate debut versus Charlotte ... played in a reserve role on the offensive line.

#79 Kenny Thomas- 6-6, 325, OLG, SR, - A geomantic OLG. The best news for Louisville is that they have a gigantic O-line. Alabama is going to have some trouble powering them backwards.

2015: Appeared in seven games on the offensive line … made collegiate debut versus Auburn, playing six snaps … made four starts at right tackle, earning his first collegiate start versus NC State in a 20-13 win over the Wolfpack.

-------

#94 *G.G. Robinson- 6-4, 298, RS-Jr  - He has good size, but not sure how he stands up to the Alabama O-line inside.

Overview: Took a step forward in his development last season ... big, athletic body who can move and plays well with his hands ... show significant action at defensive tackle in 2017.

2017: Made an appearance in 13 games, with six starts ... finished the year with 28 tackles and 3.0 tackles for loss ... recorded a career-high three tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in the season opener versus Purdue ... made first start versus Clemson ... posted five tackles and a tackle for loss versus Kent State ... recorded a career-best six tackles at NC State ... credited with four tackles at Florida State.
