Alabama was back at practice Thursday. The temperature outside was eighty degrees and there were clear skies. The team worked in shells and shorts. Here are some observations from the limited media viewing period:
— Alabama’s offensive line consisted of Jonah Williams at left tackle, Ross Pierschbacher at left guard, Bradley Bozeman at center, Lester Cotton at right guard and Matt Womack at right tackle.
— Running backs Bo Scarbrough (leg) and B.J. Emmons (foot) were in black, non-contact jerseys. Nick Saban said both players would be involved in individual drills this spring as they come back from injuries.
— Linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton (knee) and defensive back Jared Mayden (hip) were working out with elevation training masks. Mayden was on the bike and Hamilton was on the field.
— Rashaan Evans led the inside linebacker drills followed by Keith Holcombe, Josh McMillon and freshman Dylan Moses.
— Trevon Diggs, who made his biggest impact last season as a receiver, continued to work with the defensive backs.
— New offensive coordinator Brian Daboll was active in the quarterback drills, giving instruction and energetically moving around the field. Daboll was hard to miss, of course. He was decked out in crimson from head to toe.
