Nick Saban's teams at Alabama always make headlines, and a handful of players are the talk of the town in the national football scene. There are also plenty of guys that quietly play their part in helping bring home hardware.
They are the type of players that make big impacts throughout the season but get stuck in the shadow the bigger names.
Alabama lost quite a few starters to graduation and the NFL this past season (as usual), so all of the following players will get a lot of opportunities to make even bigger names for themselves.
These players are all guys that I see in the NFL someday soon, but they were rarely talked about between all the "Richardson this, Hightower that."
These are the players that will begin the season being underrated from a national standpoint, but will finish the season as either All-Americans, All-SEC or high NFL draft picks.
