Many wonder year after year how does a team like Alabama continues to find success despite losing players to the NFL and assistant coaches as well to other teams.

ESPN college football analysis Paul Finebaum gave this answer when asked how does the Crimson Tide do it. He said it’s all about how Nick Saban runs his program.

Saban lost several players from last year’s national championship team to the NFL including quarterback Mac Jones, Heisman winner DeVonta Smith, and running back Najee Harris.

All first-round draft choices. But he was able to replace them with 5-star quarterback Bryce Young, backup running back Brian Robinson Jr., and Ohio State transfer Jameson Williams. All three were first-team All-SEC players this season.
