Alabama defensive lineman Da’Ron Payne is one big, bad, young man. The 6-2, 315 pound lineman is a physical nightmare for opposing offensive lineman. Ole Miss learned that two weeks ago when Payne came through with a fumble returned for a touchdown.
His impact for Alabama against Kentucky might not have been as apparent on the scoreboard, but man did he make the Kentucky offensive line pay with some physical play.
The Sophomore Payne is another of example of Alabama reloading, not rebuilding. Payne should be a handful for opposing offensive lines all year.
