Alabama Football: Power Ranking the Crimson Tide Wide Receiver Unit

Kenny Bell will be one of the main weapons counted to make big plays in the Crimson Tide's passing attack this fall.

Perhaps no unit will personify Alabama’s makeover on offense this fall more than its wide receiver group. 

With a new offensive coordinator in Doug Nussmeier, and having to replace the likes of Trent Richardson and Marquis Maze amongst others, the 2012 edition of Alabama’s offense will look different from the unit that dominated LSU in the BCS National Championship Game in New Orleans five months ago. 

Both starting wideouts from last season have moved on—and Nick Saban’s squad returns just two receivers that caught a touchdown pass last season (Kenny Bell and DeAndrew White each recorded two). 

However, despite those underwhelming figures (and a messy offseason for some of the unit’s members), optimism abounds for the future of the Crimson Tide’s receiving targets. 

The roster includes several contributors from last season who will be counted on to raise their level of play this fall and several talented youngsters itching to crack the rotation. 

So which receivers are candidates to break out this fall?

Find out in this breakdown of Alabama’s pass-catching unit.
