From an ESPN article: Draft's most overrated prospects... Alabama offensive line
Reason overvalued: It is being viewed through crimson-colored glasses
Given the poor state of blocking in the NFL, it isn't a surprise that all of the Alabama Crimson Tide offensive line prospects have something of value to offer teams at the next level.
But this group garners a spot on this list because, as great as the collective talent level was, it really didn't post dominant numbers last year. The 51.7 percent good blocking rate is a quality mark, yet it wasn't even as good as the 52.8 percent GBR posted by the Clemson Tigers' run-blockers. Alabama also allowed 23 sacks last year, tied for fourth in the SEC, and its 6.6 percent rate for sacks allowed tied for 81st nationally.
Those figures all suggest this group should be viewed through a very clear prism rather than one that adds value based on the fact the players were part of the best team in the country last year.
