TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) - Alabama's offensive line is starting to take shape this spring.
The Crimson Tide must replace three All-Americans on the line and even have a new position coach in Mario Cristobal.
Center Ryan Kelly is penciled in to replace Barrett Jones. Arie Kouandjio has the inside track to line up at left guard, next to his brother and tackle Cyrus Kouandjio.
Austin Shepherd and junior college transfer Leon Brown are vying to replace D.J. Fluker at right tackle. Fluker and guard Chance Warmack are projected first-round NFL draft picks.
Alabama coach Nick Saban says he likes how the offensive line is progressing.
The Tide's backup linemen drew the nickname ``Touchdown Twos'' from then-line coach Jeff Stoutland last season after the second-teamers led a touchdown drive.
