Alabama redshirt senior OT Austin Shepherd "hasn't generated a great deal of national attention but he performed quite well taking over for D.J. Fluker at right tackle last season," notes CBS Sports' Rob Rang.
"[Shepherd] possesses a combination of size, power and surprisingly light feet," Rang wrote. "Shepherd carries too much weight around his middle and occasionally struggles with leverage to drive opponents off the ball in the running game but he shuffles well laterally and can anchor against bull rushers in pass protection." Shepherd, 6-foot-5 and 316 pounds, runs a 5.38 second forty. Aug 10 - 1:24 PM

Alabama sophomore Austin Shepherd is expected to open preseason practices as the starting right tackle.

Shepherd took second team snaps behind junior D.J. Fluker last season. Freshmen newcomers Leon Brown and Brandon Hill also have an outside shot at claiming starting positions, and Nick Saban has never been shy about relying on younger prospects if they show the necessary talent.
