Supersized and 25% Bigger, The Bama Offensive Line
They are the unsung heroes. They rarely get recognized for blasting holes through the defensive line or protecting the quarterback by the casual fan, but those in the know understand and appreciate the importance of a stout and powerful offensive line….and today’s offensive line is bigger and stronger than ever.
Looking at the 2021 offensive line and comparing them to the lineman of 1991, 30 years ago, there’s a big difference. How much bigger? How about 67 pounds bigger.
Today's potential starters (led by 6 foot-7 inch, 360 pound 3rd year starter Evan Neal) and comparing them to the starting line for the 1991 team, the average weight difference is astounding. The starting o-lineman on that 1991 team had an average weight of 261 pounds. Today's potential starters weigh an average of 328 pounds.
Overall today’s o-line is on average 43 pounds heavier than the o-linemen on the 1991 team. The average offensive lineman back in 1991 tipped the scales at 267 pounds, while today's crew is at 310 pounds.
With advanced training and better nutrition, today’s athletes are bigger and stronger. This is no knock on those athletes on the 1991 team. They had a darn good team. They finished with an 11-1 record under coach Gene Stallings, ending the season with a 30-25 victory over Colorado in the Blockbuster Bowl and a final ranking of #5 in the nation.
Offensive lineman are big, yet often go unnoticed. This year’s team is focused on repeating as National Champions and if they do achieve that goal, make sure to thank those unsung heroes in the trenches.

Hi Alabama Football fans. We all love a good tailgate: BBQ, hot dogs, hamburgers and maybe a few adult beverages as well. Very few of us have the perfect diet. In fact, 90 percent of us don’t eat enough fruits and vegetables. That’s why I created Planet 3 Vitamin Packs, to help fill the gaps in your nutrition. Each premium vitamin pack has 5 times the amount of vitamin C (300mg) than you’d find in your average multivitamin and twice the amount of vitamin D (2,000IU). They've got a lot of other great nutrients as well.
Our vitamin packs were formulated to make taking vitamins easy. Folks are often confused when they walk down the vitamin aisle, we’ve done the homework for you and created a premium vitamin pack that provides a wide spectrum of nutrients. Inside each vitamin pack you’ll get the following key nutrients: Vitamin B12, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Biotin (for hair skin & nails), Magnesium, Omega-3 Fish Oil (ours is certified sustainable from ocean waters & doesn’t smell or taste “fishy” ), Probiotics, Lutein & Zeaxanthin (key ingredients in many vision support supplements), Elderberry, Zinc and of course our premium vitamin packs contain a multivitamin with 16 essential vitamins & minerals.
