The Alabama Crimson Tide are the No. 1 team in the country, and it’s in large part because they dominate both lines of scrimmage.
Leading the way are OT Jonah Williams and DT Quinnen Williams, both of whom have the potential to be top-five picks in the 2019 NFL Draft.
Because of their strong seasons, they’ve been named two of the three finalists for the Outland Trophy, given annually to the best interior lineman in the country:

DT Christian Wilkins of Clemson is the other finalist, and he’s certainly deserving of the honor as well.
These two teams may meet in the National Championship Game again, and it’s thanks in large part to the play of these three talented linemen.
