Alabama has a roster filled with talent at the wide receiver position, but does the group have enough consistency?

Crimson Tide fans understand a new quarterback needs to emerge to replace Bryce Young; however, it has to have options that will successfully catch the football and make plays. Dropped passes were a theme for Alabama receivers in the last two seasons.

Young witnessed several dropped balls in his first year starting.

It was disappointing in the 2022 College Football Playoff National Championship Game against Georgia (2021 season) to see passes hit the ground. Young put several balls in perfect spots, but the receivers did not finish. The same issue happened again last season and during the Tide’s annual spring game. Nick Saban saw receivers make some plays, but he also saw dropped balls from the group. Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson could have had better statistics if not for the unfortunate drops by receivers.
