Best of #TideNationDraft selections

By TideNation

TideNation's panel of experts has weighed in and picked their all-time Alabama teams. We also posed the question to the fans @ESPNAlabama with #TideNationDraft.

Here are some of the best picks.

@ESPNAlabama @RecruitingESPN Derrick Thomas would be my first pick. Greatest LB to play college football in my opinion. Beast.

@ESPNAlabama @RecruitingESPN Joe Namath., the best. #TideNationDraft

#tidenationdraft De. Thomas (all-time most explosive, unblockable), and Ju. Jones. (freak of nature, instant points)

We also polled the fans on best picks for offensive and defensive lines.

Continuing our #TideNationDraft talk: If you had to pick a three-man d-line, who would it be and why? What about an all-time o-line?

@AlexS_ESPN O-line Samuels, Hannah, Stevenson, Neighbors, Fluker. D-Line: Copeland, Cody, Bennett (he was more end than LB)

And best RB ...

Would he be your first RB off the board, Tweeps? RT @rolltidemikeg: @AlexS_ESPN Shaun Alexander. No question.
