  Draft Scout by Conference

  There've been a few talented tight ends to come through this Alabama program in the Nick Saban era. Some have been more involved in the passing game than others with first-round pick O.J. Howard representing the high-water mark to this point. Well, Najee Harris offered high praise for the next up-and-coming player at that position. Sophomore Jahleel Billingsley had a career-high three catches for 78 yards in his first start Saturday in the 63-3 win over Kentucky. "I feel like Jahleel could be one of the top players to come through here," Harris said after the game. "What he provides and what he brings to the game with his athleticism and his height and his ability to block, once he gets everything under control, he's going to be something crazy to deal with," Harris said, "especially at the next level."

Harris, known for his aerial work, certainly appreciated Billingsley work on the first offensive play of Alabama's night. Mac Jones hit the tight end for a 34-yard play punctuated by the kind of hurdle that became Harris' trademark. Billingsley got the start with senior Miller Forristall slowed by a sprained ankle and injured shoulder. Saban said he could have played but they didn't want to force it so Billingsley got the call. Listed at 6-foot-3, 230 pounds, he's a little smaller than the block-heavy Forristall (6-5, 244 pounds). Saban is impressed with Billingsley's athleticism as a receiver. "The big thing is consistency in performance with him," Saban said. "Every day he's got to go out there and do things you know a certain way that we can trust them and depend on." - Birmingham News
