Jimbo on Jacob

NEW YORK -- BamaMag.com was in New York City for Draft weekend, and it was able to speak to many with knowledge about Crimson Tide greats past and present. It also was able to take a closer look at the future, as Jimbo Fisher broke down what Alabama is getting in Jacob Coker both on and off the field.

Radio City Music Hall in Manhattan was abuzz Saturday afternoon with speculation on the future of an Alabama quarterback. A.J. McCarron, the topic of all the conjecture, lasted until the fifth round before he was taken by the Cincinnati Bengals, 164th overall. Tide fans can now turn their attention to the next generation of signal callers attempting to win the starting role. Another St. Paul' s Episcopal High School graduate is a prime candidate to capture the hearts of those cheering for the crimson and white.

'BAMA Magazine/BamaMag.com spoke exclusively with Jimbo Fisher, the 2013 National Championship Head Football Coach of Florida State on Saturday afternoon at the 2014 NFL Draft, about Jacob Coker. The Mobile native is transferring from the Seminole program in Tallahassee to Tuscaloosa and has two years of eligibility remaining. 'BAMA fans wish he performs well enough to be the next subject of adoration in the long line of admired quarterbacks matriculating at The Capstone.
