As we hit the midpoint of the 2020 SEC season, Touchdown Alabama Magazine will be releasing a series of grade reports of every position group and key coaches on the staff. In these articles, we will dive into the contributions each unit has made to the team thus far and provide a sufficient grade based on its performance to this point in the year.
In breaking down the next part of mid-season grades, we look at Alabama’s wide receivers and tight ends.

Wide Receiver: A+
Tight End: B
Overall Grade: A
It is hard to find a group of wide receivers that have been more productive than Alabama’s wideout corps this season. With two of undoubtedly the best wide receivers in college football, Alabama’s offense has tore defenses apart. Unfortunately, an injury to Jaylen Waddle has left a hole within this group.
Despite losing some major explosiveness with the loss of Waddle, Alabama’s offense still has an opportunity to continue using its multiple weapons at wide receiver to shred defenses for the remainder of the season.
