Earlier today we ranked all 14 teams based on their offensive line. Now it's time to look at the top tackles, the top guards and the top centers and determine who will stand out above the rest this fall.

How important is offensive line play? Go back and find the last time a team with an average offensive line won the SEC championship. The translation: If you're going to win a title in this league, you better be good and deep up front offensively.
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Alabama isn't in a rush to find its starting quarterback for the 2014 season. That might sound a little crazy when you consider the high expectations the Crimson Tide will undoubtedly face yet again this fall, but it really isn't the biggest concern for a team that was an improbable play away from repeating as SEC West champs and possibly playing in its third straight BCS title game last season.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Like a lot of position battles going on during spring practice in Tuscaloosa, Ala., -- hello, quarterbacks -- the starting five up front for the Crimson Tide likely won't be decided anytime soon.

Granted, spring practice hasn't even started yet, but we here at the SEC blog want to give a little love to the "big uglies" in the offensive line. Go back and look at the last few SEC champions/national champions, and it's no coincidence that those teams were outstanding on the offensive line.
Editor's note: This is Part III in a weeklong series looking at Alabama's top five position groups with room to improve. TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- It wasn't all bad. It's sometimes important to remember that.

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Because he's a signed prospect, Nick Saban will have to address the addition of Jacob Coker during spring practice. He'll have to, at some point, answer questions about the quarterback transferring from Florida State, the strong-armed former backup to a Heisman Trophy winner whom Alabama fans hope will develop into something of an award-winning quarterback himself in Tuscaloosa.

AUBURN, Ala. -- Saturday's epic Iron Bowl on the Plains is what all rivalry games should look like. When No. 1 Alabama (11-0, 7-0 SEC) travels to see fourth-ranked Auburn (10-1, 6-1), it will be the first time these two get together with the SEC Western Division title and a shot at the BCS title game on the line.
