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. 26 Landon Collins
Sophomore safety

Expectations for 2013: Nick Saban didn't want to bring Collins along too quickly and give him too much to do as a rookie last season. He said as much at last year's SEC media days, citing what he believed to be an instance where he stunted Mark Barron's growth as a freshman by having him learn multiple positions. Instead, the head coach of the Crimson Tide took the No. 1 safety in the 2012 class and had him learn the defense slowly.
