Alabama’s offensive line started to find its identity in the second half versus Mississippi.

JC Latham, a former five-star, is playing well as a second-year starting right tackle.

The junior did not allow a quarterback pressure to Jalen Milroe in 31 pass-block snaps against the Rebels. Latham has missed only three assignments on 259 snaps, while totaling 15 knockdown blocks. The 6-foot-6, 360-pounder has allowed one sack in four games, but he cleared the way for running backs Jase McClellan and Roydell Williams to each have a 100-yard performance.

McClellan had 105 yards rushing versus Ole Miss and Williams posted 129 yards rushing against South Florida. 

Latham could get taken in the top 10 or top 15 of the 2024 NFL Draft if he continues producing.

He will lead the Crimson Tide’s offensive line against Mississippi State’s defense at Davis Wade Stadium.
