During the summer, TideNation will analyze each of the scholarship players on the Alabama roster -- excluding the Tide's 2013 recruiting class -- in our Crimson Countdown series. Starting with No. 1 Dee Hart, we will go through the roster numerically, finishing with No. 99 Brandon Ivory.

No. 45 Jalston Fowler
Redshirt junior running back

Expectations for 2013: It's hard to know just what to expect of Fowler, who missed most of last season recovering from a major knee injury and was not available to participate fully in spring practice. All indications are that he'll be ready to go by fall camp, but his absence from A-Day was nonetheless notable. If healthy, Fowler provides an added dimension to the Alabama backfield as the biggest back on the roster at a whopping 250 pounds. His athleticism, though, is what makes him a dangerous weapon for offensive coordinator Doug Nussmeier.
