Because I got no clue...how do we look for 2013?
Could be a couple of different combinations, A lot depending on if D.J. Fluker goes pro. Here is one:
LT- Cyrus K.
LG- Got a hunch that Steen could make the move to left guard next year.
C- Ryan Kelly and he should be very good.
RG- Arie K.
RT- Fluker, if he stays, but if not it will be a battle between Shepherd and Leon Brown. Could add Tunsil in the mix if he signs with Alabama.

This leads me to another question...if Fluker does stay, could Leon make the move to RG? Or is he simply a OT
All kinda depends on Big Fluke and his draft prospects. I believe he could go late first early second. Saban may try and presuade him to stay another year if he's not higher than that. But I wil give you a list on my thoughts.
LT - C Kouandjio/ L Tunsil
LG - A Taylor/ C Lindsay; I really think if Taylor developes as projected he starts
C - R Kelley/ K Williams; Kelley seems to get more of the work with second unit even though he's younger
RG - A Steen
RT - L Brown/ L Tunsil;
If Fluker stays this mixes up up alot of things. I see us getting Tunsil and treating him swimilar to CK his freshman year.

Please forgive my ignorance, but is Leon Brown a transfer or walkon? I don't remember his recruitment.
Current Juco committ
My mom and Paul "Bear" Bryant's mom had something in common....They didn't raise anything but a winner!
On Alabama: CeCe Jefferson - "It was a bunch of beautiful women..." Reggie Ragland - "oh the females of course..."
That's tough to say, I see him as a true tackle, but have never really given thought to him playing guard. Anything is possible and Alabama fans know that Coach Saban wants his best five on the line and is not afraid to move guys around to make that happen.
Another question - Fluker is often times projected as a Guard in the NFL... could we see him move inside, if he stayed, and put Brown on the outside??
Either way - our drop-off in OLine next year will be similar to the 2008-2009 change - which was NOT MAJOR.
It will still be a very strong unit... and, thus, making us just as likely to compete for a NC again
The price of victory is high, but so are the rewards.
Agree with this
Also I am not sure Taylor is quick enough from what I have read. Absolutely massive though
Could Brandon Greene move to right tackle or are they wanting him to say at left tackle for after Cyrus leaves? A lot depends on tunsil I am sure
Taylor still has a ways to go learning how to play OLine. Upside is outrageous, but he still a bit to learn about playing guard.
Seems like he got in a game or two early In the season, correct? Hope I am wrong
No he has not played.
Just what I have been told by a daily "observer", Brandon Greene is growing physically and making strides on scout team. Stoutland likes him alot.
