Alabama

 

Player Overview:

If you had to describe Kenyan Drake in one word, it would be “electric”. Drake is a threat every time he touches the ball, whether in the backfield or lined up in the slot. He is Alabama’s most versatile player and will be the ‘x-factor’ for the Tide’s offense after his 2014 season was cut short when he broke his leg in the Ole Miss game.

Drake has said that he is back to 100 percent and ready to roll in 2015. In practice, he works with his running back group and also with the receivers, which could be a huge plus for Lane Kiffin because we all saw what Drake can do when he lines up outside (as seen in the picture above). Look for Kenyan Drake to be one of the main leaders and go-to guys when you watch Alabama play in 2015.
