If you haven't purchased or at least flipped through a Phil Steele College Football Preview magazine over the years, are you really a fan? That hard-to-miss full color gridiron bible is available everywhere periodicals are sold from now through September and is jam-packed with roster information and predictions on the upcoming season.

For the novice in need of reference points about any team, Steele's preview is a must-read.

Arguably one of his most interesting features each season is his ranking of each of the top position units in college football. Steele ranks them nationally with a short breakdown of each unit that makes the top 15 in its specific area.

Those areas are quarterback, running back, receiver, offensive line, defensive line, linebacker, defensive back and special teams. He also projects rushing and passing totals for each team's offense and defense based on their talent and schedule as well as projected points scored and points surrendered.

Last season, he accurately predicted a national championship for Alabama and likes the Crimson Tide's chances once again.

Below, BamaOnLine examines where Steele has Alabama ranked at each position and we share our take on whether or not we agree.
