Prep: One of four offensive linemen signed by the Tide in 2004, Caldwell graded 85 percent blocking efficiency as a junior at Lee-Montgomery and only gave up
one sack the entire year. He is known for his exceptional quickness and foot speed which makes him an excellent pass-blocker. He was a first-team All-State selection his senior year and was ranked the No. 10 player in Alabama by SuperPrep magazine.

Personal: Son of Mack and Priscilla Caldwell. He has an older brother, Arsenio and a twin brother, Anthony.
