Junior Jacob Coker and senior Blake Sims are listed as co-starters on Alabama's first official depth chart, according to reports.

Coker transferred from Florida State after battling Jameis Winston for the starting job last preseason and completing 18 passes for 250 yards in relief of the Heisman Trophy winner. Senior Sims completed 18 passes for 167 yards and two touchdowns and added 61 yards on the ground.

Sims or Coker will replace A.J. McCarron, a three-year starter who was selected in the fifth round of the 2014 draft.
