Alabama has seen its fair share of smoke shows and the 2021 team is no exception. We look back on the season and rank our top 10 hottest players; some we will see next year, and others we will mourn not seeing in Crimson again.

We had the Cali King Bryce lower on the list, but after winning the Heisman Trophy, we figured what is more attractive than that?!? NIL Deals have been rolling in all season for this man to be the face of different brands, and he’s the face of the Alabama Crimson Tide, so it’s only fitting he’s the face of our list.

Will Anderson Jr. terminated opponents and won our hearts all season long. Despite being snubbed from the Heisman, we ensured this handsome linebacker wouldn't be left off our list. And again, I repeat, what's more, attractive than 101 tackles, 17.5 sacks, and is the best defensive player in the nation? I mean, look at him; the man could be a model.

3. Slade Bolden

It would have been pretty Bold(en) if we left Slade off the list. This handsome 5’11 wide receiver may not be appreciated as much as the other receivers, but he deserves all the love for his work ethic, competitive spirit, fuzzy beard and biceps. After the first OT touchdown catch in the Iron Bowl, there is no way we will ever forget him. He will truly be missed next season.

4. Drew Sanders

Sanders stepped into the starting role after Christopher Allen’s injury and became a must-watch talent on the field. Sadly, Sanders suffered an injury against Ole Miss and became limited in playing time. Anytime Sanders steps on the field he becomes a sweet treat for the eyes! Unfortunately, the dirty orange Texas Longhorns jersey will never look as good on Sanders than the Alabama Crimson and White.

No Bama team would be complete without a Hawaiian prince, and neither would this list. So, coming in at number five is the Samoan-Tongan Tennessee transfer. A beautiful man with a beautiful culture, a winning combination. Thanks, Tennessee, for a beautiful and talented man! We can't wait to watch another season of our favorite transfer.

6. Jalen Milroe

The dynasty of attractive Bama QBs will continue even after Young is gone, with Milroe next in line. The heir apparent is a triple threat with the talent to run, pass, and steal our hearts with his good looks.

7. Trey Sanders

Sanders has battled injuries in his first two seasons, including a major car accident last season. Sanders stepped up to the plate after Brian Robinson went down with an injury in the Iron Bowl. Despite limited playing time, it was always a treat when he stepped onto the field. Hopefully, we will see Sanders more on the field next season!

8. Will Reichard

Like his sophomore season, Will Reichard is perfect for our list! Before joining the Tide, Alabama had trouble in the kicking game until last season (14/14). Now, Bama fans can breathe during field goals and extra-point attempts. There would be nothing special about special teams if Will Reichard weren't on it.

9. Phildarian Mathis

Mathis is probably one of the most underappreciated veterans on the Alabama defense. While most watch for his teammate Will Anderson, everybody should turn their heads toward Mathis. His fumble recovery led to Alabama’s game-clinching drive against LS-WHO. After reading our list, please go check out highlights of Mathis and take in all the appreciation for this handsome DL as he heads off to the next level!

10. Major Tennison

While at Bama, Tennison has never been a major player at TE, but our eyeballs have been extremely grateful for all six of his career receptions. Any glimpse of him on the sideline is good, so thanks Major for being our sideline eye candy on the list.

Honorable Mention:
Evan Neal

If there is anyone on the team that I trust to guard my heart, it is undoubtedly Evan Neal. While he didn't make this list, Neal certainly deserves an honorable mention. Neal's leadership played a big part in the Tide's SEC Championship win over Georgia. While it's too early to tell if Neal will be the No. 1 overall pick, I know he will always be No. 1 in my heart!

Nick Saban

You can’t make an Alabama football hottest list without the man that makes it all happen. 70 years old and aging like fine wine, Saban could arguably be number one on this list every year. But to make it fair to all the players and out of respect to the Queen Mrs. Terry, we’ll make him an honorable mention.
