Nick Saban and the Alabama Crimson Tide will go into the 2018 season with some brand new coaches in their staff, but one returning staff member maybe one of the most important.

Strength coach Scott Cochran is the most vocal leader in the program not named Nick Saban and the recent video showing his halftime speech during the national championship is another reason why that theory can hold true.

Former All-American lineman for Alabama Mike Johnson joins The Game with Ryan Fowler to discuss Cochran's importance to Alabama.

He also discusses can Jonah Williams fill the void for Bradley Bozeman in the offensive line, and how does lineman get their grade at how they are performing during spring practice.

For more of Johnson's analysis on Alabama and SEC football make sure you watch the video above the article. Don't miss The Game with Ryan Fowler weekday afternoons from 2-6 p.m. for the latest surrounding the Alabama Crimson Tide.
