Alabama held its 20th and final fall camp practice indoors on an overcast Saturday afternoon. Here are our observations during the media viewing period:

The offensive line continues to come together as the linemen worked on blocking in pairs, in threes and finally as a line as a whole. The starting right guard position continues to be held by Landon Dickerson and Matt Womack. This has been consistent throughout fall camp and may very well continue into the year as coach Nick Saban looks for more position diversity along the line. Jedrick Wills Jr., Chris Owens, Evan Neal and Alex Leatherwood were the rest of the first-team linemen, from right to left.

The team worked on its dime package toward the end of the media viewing period. Dylan Moses was the lone ILB as safety Xavier McKinney was in the “Money” slot which was to Moses’ right. Jared Mayden was at his usual position at safety as he was paired up with Shyhiem Carter who filled in at the vacant position normally held by McKinney. The cornerbacks remained the same as Trevon Diggs and Josh Jobe were outside while Patrick Suratin was in his normal spot in the slot.

Jerome Ford continues to work back to full health after suffering an ankle injury. During indiviual drills with the running backs, Ford stood off to the side while the rest of the unit went. Najee Harris and Brian Robinson led the way followed by Keilan Robinson and Chadarius Townsned.

The defensive linemen and the outside linebackers were paired up and working on their sets in dime. Raekwon Davis and LaBryan Ray were paired together with Anfernee Jennings and Jarez Parks behind them. Terrell Lewis was the only OLB working with the rest of the secondary as it worked on the dime scheme. Redshirt freshman Stephon Wynn Jr. and freshman Justin Eboigbe were absent from practice during the viewing period.
