There are physical traits of Dre Kirkpatrick’s game would seem to make him a natural replacement for Cedric Griffin, but what does NFL Scouting think of the Alabama cornerback that is set to visit the Vikings? There are aspects that make him a great fit and then there are concerns.

PUSH COMES TO SHOVE
He’s still not 100% following knee surgery, but Trent Richardson still showcased his obscene amount of athletic ability at Alabama’s Pro Day on Thursday. His forty times haven’t been blazing, but he’s certainly not in top form, either. One thing that does appear to be in top form, however, is his blocking (or at least [...]
What do you give the highest paid college football coach in the nation? Well, if you are defending national champion Alabama, you give him a raise.
In the midst of a spring practice that, by all accounts, is going well, Nick Saban received a contract extension with an immediate bump in salary to 5.3 million, an increase of 550,000 over what he would have made in 2012 under his old...
This is, allegedly, AJ McCarron’s Yukon. I don’t know this for certain because, as you can see, he isn’t in the car in this picture. But, I think, given the vanity license plate and the #10s on the taillights, it’s safe to assume that this is indeed the Alabama quarterback’s truck (either that or somebody REALLY loves AJ McCarron). This car is apparently parked...
Alabama Makes Nick Saban Highest Paid Coach
Alabama has rewarded Nick Saban for his second national title in three years with a contract extension that now makes him the highest paid coach in college football. Saban received a 2-year contract extension through 2020 and a $550,000 raise per season which makes his new base salary a whopping $5.3 million. That makes him the highest...

All eyes were on Courtney Upshaw, Mark Barron and Trent Richardson, but Alabama wasn't the only pro day of note for the Packers.
On March 7, Alabama had its Pro Day, and every NFL team had scouts and/or coaches in Tuscaloosa to look at prospective former Crimson Tide players in anticipation of the NFL draft in late April. But because three Bama players were unable to participate on March 7, the Crimson Tide hosted Pro Day II Thursday.
If you like surprises, watch the Alabama baseball team. In some games, the Crimson Tide comes up with great pitching and defense. In some games, Bama comes up with fine hitting. What would be a pleasant surprise would be for the team to put them together on a consistent basis.
It is that wonderful time of year again when we can talk NFL Draft. It is one of my favorite times of year where we get to experience a football holiday. We get blessed with fresh, young players who are filled with talent and optimism. The best part of the Draft has to be the anticipation and mystery of who your favorite team will pick. This year I will end the mystery for Detroit...
Darren Lake, defensive tackle from York-Sumter Central, Ala., signed with the Crimson Tide in February. He is training hard in the off-season preparing for the arrival in Tuscaloosa. Andrew Bone caught up with the UA signee who discussed more of his routine.
