TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Now that spring practice has ended, TideNation takes a look at Alabama's projected offensive depth chart. An asterisk denotes a player who enrolled early:

Starter: AJ McCarron (RS Sr.) Backup: Alec Morris (RS Fr.) or Blake Sims (RS Jr.)

There's no doubt that McCarron's the starter. The question is, who will be his backup, and ultimately the one to take over in case of an extended absence? They might not be one in the same, as Sims is likely only a short-term solution running the read-option. Morris, the strong-armed Texan who redshirted last season, is the best passer of the group and could fight to become the starter should McCarron go down for more than a week or so.
