    Re: 2013 QB

    AJ's the best pro prospect we've had at QB in a long time. He's stated he's going & if he wins 2 NC's in a row and is a Heisman finalist, his stock will never be higher.

    As of right now, it looks like Ely's the true "backup" QB. I say this because for whatever reason, we actually allow him to throw passes when he comes into the game. Sims has played 50+ snaps in his two years on campus and he's never thrown a pass. Both have come in for mop-up duty, but the coaches never seem to trust Sims to throw a pass. TIFWIW.
    Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me twice? Congratulations, you'd probably make a pretty good con-man.

    Looking for this to change Saturday night. On topic, I think AJ goes Pro. Oline almost has to take a step or two back next year. If you are gonna take lumps, might as well get paid. He will have nothing left to prove.

    Maybe he has thrown a pass. I looked up his stats several places, including ESPN, and this is what I found. Thanks for the find.

    Click on the Stats tab on his profile. You'll see his passing stats.

    I honestly don't remember the passes, though. haha

    He actually has a decent arm. Now, is he capable of a full SEC season? IDK

    I agree. I would love to see AJ stay for selfish reasons, but looking at it from his standpoint, he has nothing left to prove if he continues to do what he's doing and also wins another NC.

    Re: 2013 QB

    AJ is frail because he's suffered a few minor bumps and bruises after being nailed about 14 times this year? Please. He played half of last season with a shoulder injury that required significant surgery, and played great. I love ya Sip, but comparing AJ to Brodie in that respect is laughable, IMO. I also think everyone should go ahead and accept the fact that AJ is gone after this year. He has pretty much done everything short of formally announcing that he has entered the draft.

    If AJ is a projected 1st round pick, then he just needs to go. As for any other player we have. I think Ely and Simms will do just fine next year.

I've mentioned this in another thread but AJ is one of those guys who will surprise the draft "experts" by being drafted a round or two higher than they will expect. NFL Coaches and Scouts will almost certainly have AJ much higher on their "big board" than your typical draft analyst. If AJ just does what he's done so far this year for the rest of it then he'll likely be a mid-second to early-third round pick with an outside shot at a late first round pick.

    Granted, there are a few things that could cause him to stay another year such as (heaven forbid) an injury or a performance slump or something like that. Coach Saban and the NFL advisers that will talk to AJ may feel that he can greatly benefit from another year and encourage him to stay. If so, it's possible that he listens. On the other hand, there are some family pressures for him to turn pro as quickly as possible and he may listen to that no matter what.

    We won't know whether or not AJ will be back next year until sometime in the spring, at the earliest. Right now he is leaning towards declaring and that is what we should expect. If he does decide, for whatever reason, to come back for another year then it should be considered a pleasant surprise.
    I think there is a team up in the NE called the Patriots that might take a chance on him. Brady still has a few years left and that one would be a great person to learn under.

    1. I want him to stay for his SR season, but I suspect he's gone.

    2. I think it will Ely, but it wouldn't surprise if Cooper Batemen comes in early, gets acclimated quickly and sneaks into the QB competition. Not saying it would happen, but it wouldn't surprise.
