National Signing Day has come and gone, and Alabama added 20 players to its roster.

After subtracting the departing seniors, the underclassmen that declared early for the 2018 NFL Draft and linebacker Mekhi Brown’s transfer -- and adding the newcomers -- the Crimson Tide currently has 85 scholarship players signed for the 2018-19 season.

For those keeping count at home, that’s the NCAA limit for football scholarships. But much like Brown, there could more departures on the horizon, as coach Nick Saban said he would like to add another defensive lineman and quarterback to his current roster.

Alabama will likely search the junior college and graduate transfer reserves for those positions, but if a move isn’t made, Saban suggested another route the Tide could take on the D-line.

“We were actually hoping to get one more defensive lineman in this class,” Saban said Wednesday. “We feel really good about the two guys that we got. Stephon Wynn is a really good player, a big power guy. (Christian) Barmore is the same kind of guy.

“I think some of the outside ‘backer type guys have become defensive linemen, so the fact that we got some really good guys at outside ‘backer that have really good size and really good size potential may grow into something else in their career here. But that’s something that remains to be seen. But we feel really good about those two guys.

“Again, if we had our druthers we’d have got one more guy at that position, and we’ll continue to maybe look and evaluate and see if there’s somebody out there that would help us.”

Regardless of what happens, Alabama currently has a complete roster as of the morning of Feb. 9. Below is a breakdown of the Crimson Tide’s 85-man roster after National Signing Day.
