  Alabama no doubt saw a jump in receiver production from what it lost in the portal, but it has more ground to make up from what was lost to the NFL Draft. Portal departures put together 28 catches for 429 yards and four touchdowns. Compare that to 80 receptions for 1,490 yards and 13 touchdowns for portal additions. The two aren't close. But those combined portal additions are behind Jameson Williams' sole production in yards and touchdowns in 2021. He caught 79 passes for 1,572 yards and 15 touchdowns. Plus, Alabama lost John Metchie III, who led the team with 96 receptions, to the draft. Williams set the bar high, but he also proved a jump can be made in the right circumstance. Williams went from next-to-no production at Ohio State to an All-American season at Alabama. That might be a lot to ask of Georgia transfer Jermaine Burton or Louisville transfer Tyler Harrell to pull off alone, but combined they could make up for that lack of production. Especially when they have a Heisman Trophy winner throwing to them. "Jermaine Burton has probably been the most consistent guy at the position," Saban said after the spring game. "So it's obviously a place where we need to get more consistent, there's no question about it, in my opinion. If we're gonna be able to take advantage of the other strengths that we have on our team." - Birmingham News
