Dickerson joins Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith as a starter. He was selected in the second round of the NFL Draft after a successful collegiate career with the Crimson Tide.
Dickerson was Alabama’s “Iron Man” on the offensive line, guiding the unit to the Joe Moore Award in 2020. He won the Rimington Trophy (nation’s top center) and shared SEC Jacobs Blocking Trophy honors with Alex Leatherwood.
Dickerson was a Unanimous First-Team All-American and a permanent team captain.
Despite suffering a knee injury in the SEC Championship Game, he assisted Alabama to an undefeated national championship season.
Dickerson has been rehabbing his way to a starting opportunity. Crimson Tide fans are excited to see him in the pros.
