Alabama 2022 Spring Football Preview: Safe and steady, the safety group looks to be a strength for the Tide

While Alabama typically deals with pretty heavy roster attrition at pretty much every position group every single year due to the constant stream of early NFL departures (Roll Tide), Nick Saban hit the jackpot going into 2022 with every single starter at the three safety spots, plus a former starter, all returning for their junior and senior seasons.

This group, along with the pass rush, is expected to be the strength of the time and provide a lot of steadying veteran leadership and experience to guide the Alabama defense to great things this season.

And, yes, I am including the Star, or slot corner, in the safety group.
