Crimson Countdown: Cyrus Kouandjio 

July, 16, 2013
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. 71 Cyrus Kouandjio
Junior offensive lineman

Expectations for 2013: Kouandjio isn't just expected to be a starter or All-SEC performer, he's expected to be among the best left tackles in the country this season. He's already been named to the Outland Award watch list and Mel Kiper Jr. lists him as the fourth best draft prospect overall, but Kouandjio still has to prove it on the football field as a junior. He'll have every opportunity to do that, too, as he faces some of the best competition in the country with the likes of Virginia Tech, Texas A&M and LSU on the schedule.

The Unknown Of Cardale Jones
Austin Ward and Brian Bennett wrap up Sunday at the Allstate Sugar Bowl, where Cardale Jones was the topic for both teams, particularly the fact that so much of his play is still unknown from his lack of game time.
