Tyler Booker is pleased with the offensive line’s performance in No. 4 Alabama’s 56-7 season-opening victory vs. Middle Tennessee. However, the sophomore still sees some areas of improvement for the unit to be even stronger going forward.

The 6-foot-5, 335-pound Booker shared his thoughts during his September 4 appearance on The Next Round.

Alabama produced 431 total yards (226 passing, 205 rushing) against the Conference USA opponent. Yet, Booker explained the standard is higher with the Crimson Tide.

“We’ve got a lot of technical things that we need to clean up,” Booker said. “We have a few assignment things that we need to clean up as well.”

Booker is proud of the way the offensive line competed and gave maximum effort in the dominant victory.

“But one thing that we can hang our hat on is that everybody strained, everybody played through the whistle, and everybody really played with that dominating mindset,” Booker said. “As a group we had 21 knock downs…I think all the starters had 3 or more…I had the most, I had 7, so I’ll put that out there.”

Alabama will clash with visiting No. 11 Texas in Week 2 on Sept. 9 (7 p.m. EST/ESPN).
