Looking at the roster we only have 10 scholarship DB's....5 CB's and 5 S's. The majority do not have much experience. I know that Saban is the man back there but the depth seems to be getting thin. Is the plan to go after more Junior College help? I know that we like to play with 5-6 DB's at times...I would like to hear what everyone thinks about our experience and personel.
1. Belue (CB) Starter
2. G. Smith (CB) Came on late this year
3. Washington (CB) red shirt
4. Sylve (CB) red shirt
5. Fulton (CB) Back-up/Starter
6. Clinton-Dix (S) Starter
7. Collins (S) Special teams
8. Sunseri (S) Starter/Special teams
9. J. Williams (S) Back-up (injured 2012)
10. Perry (s) Starter/Back-up
Missing Eddie Williams on your list
It's not the will to win, but the will to prepare to win that makes the difference.

We have commitments from CB prospects Maurice Smith and Johnathan Cook, Anthony Averett and ArDarius Stewart could end up at DB, and you left Eddie Williams off the list of current Safeties. Also, we are still pursuing the signature of 5-Star DB Vonn Bell. I don't think we will be in that bad of shape.
Not only that but we have already been heavily targeting Marlon Humphrey, Tony Brown, and Jalon Tabor (the top 3 CB's for 2014). Hopefully we land at least 1 of those guys with an outside shot at 2... Also, the guy who is coming in to coach DB's is an old school NFL guy, so hopefully we can also see some significant improvement in the guys already on campus.
Do you think that the second corner is on the team right now...or will it be a freshman?

I think Geno will end up being the next great DB at Alabama
It will be Geno Smith or John Fulton, no idea which though. Maybe Geno would start in Base, and then slide in to the slot in Nickel.
Really hope we can get Vonn Bell
Just wondering if y'all think the new DB coach will help us any with Tony Conner out of So Panola in Miss. I know someone said he has us as his leader now but most believe that is just for drama. Think maybe he will chose us on Friday? Also didn't he say at one time that he would keep his recruitment open even if he did commit somewhere?
Also don't forget if we do miss out on guys for 14 we still have cryus jones who could play DB. He most likely wont but if worst came to worst
Does anyone know how Sylve and Washington are progressing? I know Sylve has the speed because I remember him running that kickoff back at the Army Allstar game last year.
