Alabama's ten most impactful players for the 2023 season
We have finally made it college football fans. The 2023 season is now upon us, as games are set to get underway on Saturday, Aug. 26.
In just one week, Nick Saban will lead the Alabama football team onto the field inside Bryant-Denny Stadium to take on the Middle Tennessee State Blue Raiders.
There are many question marks for the Tide entering the 2023 season and it has fans and analysts alike more curious about Alabama than usual.
If Coach Saban and Alabama want to achieve the success that is expected, the Crimson Tide will need several players to step up and impact the games week in and week out.
Here is a list of the ten players I believe will be the most impactful for Alabama this fall! 10. Malachi Moore | DB You could make the case that senior defensive back Malachi Moor
Moore is expected to play all over the backend of the Alabama defense, mostly at star and safety. If Moore can stay healthy, he could be an All-SEC type performer.
9. Amari Niblack | TE Amari Niblack has a chance to be a red zone weapon for Alabama in 2023.

8. Caleb Downs | DB There may not be a freshman in the SEC with more hype entering 2023 than Caleb Downs. Downs has basically been a starter since the moment he stepped on campus i
7. Ja'Corey Brooks | WR I could have gone with any of the seven or eight wide receivers that could potentially play with the first team, but I decided to go with the guy who has be
6. Deontae Lawson | ILB Talent and ability are not the question relative to Deontae Lawson, it is a matter of staying healthy.
5. Kool-Aid McKinstry | CB I almost feel bad for not having Kool-Aid a little higher on the list but the fact is I don’t expect many teams to test his side of the field in 2023.
4. Jaheim Oatis | DL The defensive line has been a little disappointing for the Tide over the past couple of seasons, but there is certainly potential for substantial improvements
3. Dallas Turner | OLB With the departure of Will Anderson to the NFL, all eyes will now be on junior outside linebacker Dallas Turner.
2. JC Latham | OT JC Latham is one of the best offensive tackles in the country and that alone is enough to make him one of Alabama’s most impactful players this season.
1. The Quarterback I am sure everyone is shocked by this selection. The quarterback is the most important position on the team and will greatly impact the results of the season fo
