Nick Saban has embraced the idea of not having an elite defense; however, the leadership that Alabama returns for the fall may grant him a dynamic group anyway.

After losing offensive experience to the NFL Draft, Saban is going to depend on the Tide’s defense to stifle opponents as its offense grows into form. The defense owned the first scrimmage with a lot of hitting and intensity on the field. According to Jaylen Moody, the senior linebacker told reporters that Alabama’s defense has great chemistry.

On Monday, yours truly of Touchdown Alabama Magazine discussed the defense via In My Own Words.

In the segment, I dove into why it is not a bad thing to see the defense ahead.
