Alabama football finally has a depth chart. Coach Nick Saban did not release one in the week leading up to Alabama’s 2023 opener, but UA did release a depth chart before the Crimson Tide’s game Saturday against MTSU at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
Competition has existed throughout the roster during fall camp, but the biggest battles have been at quarterback, receiver, linebacker and in the secondary.
Although the depth chart released before the game provides some clarity, Saban has made clear competition will continue throughout the season.
“Nobody is entitled to play just because we put it on a piece of paper and say, ‘This is the way it is today,'” Saban said Monday.
Here is Alabama’s depth chart released to the media before kickoff at Bryant-Denny Stadium.
