Draft 2013

Pick Analysis: The lives of many members of the Alabama football squad were affected by the April 2011 tornado going through Tuscaloosa, but few as personally as Tinker. He and his girlfriend, Ashley, were thrown from the closet inside his house, and she did not survive. Tinker accepted the Disney Spirit Award months later on behalf of the team?s efforts around the community following the disaster, still with a heavy heart.

Tinker walked on to the Alabama program before the 2008 season, passing on scholarship offers from other schools. He played in one game as a redshirt freshman in 2009, and then took over the snapping duties for punts and placements for every game the following three years. Tinker finished his career with 38 career games, and was successful on 133-135 snapping attempts.
