This is the first in a seven-part series looking ahead to the start of Alabama’s spring football practice, which begins Tuesday, March 20. We begin with a breakdown of the offensive line.

On the final play of last season, the Alabama offensive line consisted of Alex Leatherwood at left tackle, Ross Pierschbacher at left guard, Bradley Bozeman at center, J.C. Hassneauer at right guard and Matt Womack at right tackle. You’ll recall that Leatherwood took over at left tackle in the third quarter when starter Jonah Williams suffered a lower-leg injury. Hassenauer took the place of Lester Cotton, who was injured in the Sugar Bowl win over Clemson. Of those players, only Bozeman and Hassenauer are gone, leaving a lot of talent to fill the five line positions.
