Seven starters from Alabama's 2020 offense were taken in the NFL draft, but according to senior running back Brian Robinson Jr., this just gives this year's offense something to prove.
"This offense just wants to prove that we have more players that can step up and make the impact on this team," Robinson said. "With those guys leaving and went to the draft, most of us guys on offense just see it as motivation.
"Just playing beside those guys and just seeing how those guys went about working every day, and we just want to make that transition and have guys that can step up and can play those same type of roles."
One of those primary roles that will need to be filled is the running back position which Robinson plays. Last season's leading rusher, Najee Harris, was one of the seven lost to the draft. Robinson was the second-leading rusher with 483 yards and six touchdowns in 2020.
