Alabama's Sims Continuing to Work with QBs, not RBs
News: Though head coach Nick Saban recently hinted Blake Sims might serve as a possible addition to the Crimson Tide's running back corps, Al.com reports the third-year sophomore has worked only with quarterbacks during practice this week.
Analysis: Given season-ending injuries to both Dee Hart and Jalston Fowler, there was reason to believe the athletic Blake Sims might be tapped to provide some much needed depth at tailback. Saban, however, appears to have elected to use converted H-back Brent Calloway to fill the gaps in Alabama's backfield instead.
News: While Blake Sims has been working out at quarterback and running back, the Crimson Tide do have one established role for him as the team's Wildcat quarterback.
Analysis: With A.J. McCarron and Phillip Sims battling for the starting quarterback job, the Wildcat formation is a good way to get the athletic (Blake) Sims on the field.
News: Alabama's Blake Sims has been working out at both quarterback and running back lately with Nick Saban to use him as either a change-of-pace quarterback or to build depth at tailback.
Analysis: Sims is a dynamic athlete who would be best served lining up behind the quarterback.
News: With Demetrius Goode and Corey Grant transferring and Demetrius Hart and Eddie Lacey out with injuries, the Crimson Tide may look to incoming freshman Brent Calloway to help at tailback. Other options are Jalston Fowler and quarterback Blake Sims.
Analysis: Trent Richardson will certainly carry the load but they will need someone to spell him. Fowler is a big back who could be a nice complement but it looks like Calloway's the best bet.
