With Landon Dickerson playing “extremely well” at center in recent practices, the lone opening on Alabama’s offensive line has been at right guard, and the top candidate to fill that vacancy is redshirt sophomore Emil Ekiyor, who head coach Nick Saban views as a starter.

“Emil has played really, really well,” Saban said after Wednesday’s practice. “He’s had a really good camp. He’s lost weight. He’s in really good shape. He’s got very good power. He’s very smart as a player. He can play multiple positions, center and guard. We look at him as a starter and he can start multiple positions for us, and he’ll get a lot of playing time for sure.
