The players that you had a solid chance on at least that you missed out on.
Here's 12 for Alabama, IMO:
Jay Rome, TE- UGA
Damian Swann, DB- UGA
La'El Collins, OT- LSU
Antonio Richardson, OT- Tennessee
Phillip Lutzenkirchen, TE- Auburn
Jordan Jenkings, OLB/DE- UGA
Luke Joeckel, OT- aTm
Fletcher Cox, DL- Miss St
Keenan Allen, WR- Cal
Barkevious Mingo, OLB/DE- LSU
Cragin Loston, DB- LSU
Stephon Gilmore, DB- SCar
Sammy Watkins is the one that really stings.
Half of your list we were not even in the top 2 for. Our biggest misses we had a chance on were
Reuben Randall LSU
Keenan Allen Cal
Malcolm Mitchell UGA
Juwan James UT
Kiel/Winston Notre Dame/FSU
Eat clean. Train Hard.
Cordarrelle Patterson UT
Xzavier Dickson Bama
Greg Reid FSU (dodged a bullet there)
James Wilder FSU (another one)
Telvin Smith FSU
Mack Brown UF
Avery Young Auburn
Dillon Lee Bama
Adrian Hubbard Bama
Geno Smith Bama
I gotta say I don't remember us recruiting Luke Joeckel.
Bama won 3 of the last 4 BCS NCs. I wouldn't say Bama missed out on anyone. I'd say they missed out on Bama.

Sammy Watkins Clemson
Dee Hart Bama
Jake Fisher Oregon
Kris Frost Auburn
Anthony Zettel Psu
DeAnthony Arnett Tennessee now Mich state
Jordan Diamond Auburn
Danny O'Brien Tennessee
Armani Reeves ohio st
With Keenan Allen we would have never lost a game.
Think about 2011's WRs at bama:
Marquis Maze = 5' 8" 175 lbs.......undrafted
Darius Hanks = 5' 11" 185 lbs.......undrafted
These were our 2 top wide receivers for the year. Keenan Allen is on 2 or 3 higher levels than either of them. Puts into perspective just how dominant Richardson was and forced to be.

10 Major Poll National Titles (CFB record)
35 Bowl Wins (CFB record)
72 Wins over last 6 years (CFB record)
De'Anthony Thomas, Oregon
Arik Armstead (OL), Oregon
Seantrel Henderson, Miami
Manti Te'o, Notre Dame
Jarvis Jones, Georgia (not allowing him to play)
Antonio Richardson, Tennessee (I believe there was genuine interest, but he was probably never leaving TN)
Karlos Williams, Florida State (same as above)
Andrus Peat, Stanford
Kyle Murphy, Stanford
Damion Stafford, Nebraska (half-brother went to USC - never played)
Marcus Roberson, Florida
Stefon Diggs -Maryland (Biggest miss IMO)
James Quick - UL (Just happen)
Trey Depriest Bama (Always a Bama lean)
Shariff Floyd UF (Meyer snatch him away from us)
Some others but these IMO are/were the most significant ones
Add in Josh Garnett too. That one really went down to the wire.
Agreed but is Clowney still too tough for how close we were with him?
