The 2012 Alabama defense doesn't have a star, or stars. That isn't because there isn't a great player on this unit. It's because they all are good. Nobody seems to stand out above others. Among those good players is outside linebacker Xzavier Dickson. The 6-foot-3, 262-pound sophomore appeared in seven games last season and made three tackles (two solo). He had one tackle for a loss and assisted on a sack.
