Alabama held its annual media day on Saturday morning before Fan Day began later that afternoon.

The media had a chance to interview a handful of Crimson Tide football players, including defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne. The junior enters his third year in the program with a little starting experience but is expected to take on a much bigger role on the defense in 2017.

Ryan Fowler spent a few minutes talking to Payne about that and the mindset of the team entering the new season. Check out that interview in the video above.
