    Re: 2013 QB

    AJ is gone. His stock will never be higher. Him and his family have pretty much already said he is going pro. I would probably say Ely will be the guy next season. I don't see Saban running a two QB system on a regular basis. Not enough continuity in the offense. With the RB's we will have next season we just need to hand it off every play anyway ha

    Until recently, I would have agreed. However, what he's hearing now is that he could drop as low as the 3rd or 4th round, whereas next year, he could be one of the top two QBs taken, if he has a decent season. Also, the Heisman talk is not hurting. OTOH, his dad is really pushing presently, so who knows? At any rate, it's not the lead pipe cinch it was a few weeks ago...

    Selfishly I want him to return. He would be the legend if he won 3 in a row.

    The O-line next year will be fairly inexperienced. They've gotten some good reps this year, but we won't see the same play as we have the last two years. Running the ball might not be as easy as we've seen.

    How has he dropped with his performances this year? If anything, I would expect him to jump up the board rather than drop. Unless the analysts see guys doing better, I don't see how AJ has dropped.

    With all due respect, I think those who believe that Bateman has a realistic shot at starting next year are dreaming. Ely and Sims both have valuable game experience, and have been there long enough to start to earn some trust. Then you have Morris who will have the benefit of a redshirt year and a spring.

    Bateman would have to be an all-world once in a generation talent to supplant all three.

    IDK. I'm just passing along what he's hearing...

    Re: 2013 QB

    I think it is more of the fact that this years class has a lot of good pro prospect qb's in Barkley, Smith, Wilson, and any other that wants to leave early. And there are a lot of teams with qb's that are young and don't want to waste an early pick on a backup. Even New England and Denver have gotten backups in the last 2 years. So I don't see qb being a big need position this year and the class is fairly deep

    I really think it's NC or bust. If Alabama loses, and/or he gets hurt, that will impact his stock. He's not highly rated enough to take the hit. If he leads Alabama to another NC? Well, he'll not only have been a Heisman finalist but he'll have that championship mojo that someone is going to buy into.

    I really think his mind will be made up for him. Either he'll have every reason to leave, or he'll have a lot of reasons to stay.

    Re: 2013 QB

    The one thing I haven't heard anyone talk about is how many quarterbacks there are in this draft class versus the number of NFL teams that actually need a quarterback.

    There are only two teams that seem like a lock to draft a QB in the first round: Arizona and Kansas City
    The other two teams that might are Buffalo and the Jets. If all these guys leave this year some NFL team is going to get a good deal at QB.

    Being a Broncos fan I have to concur on the McDaniels statement. What was Pat Bolen thinking!

    The Pros have seen enough game film of AJ to know that he understands playing Pro style ball,
    and is a good candidate. They may try to devalue the AJ stock to frighten off some of the guys
    with early picks, In hopes of picking him up for a song later in the draft.
    (Think the Upshaw treatment )

    I would love for AJ to return. BUT...
    I think his stock will go up if we can win the big one again...
    Then Blake & Ealy will have an inside shot at starting next year.

    Question If AJ goes pro, who's next behind center?

    what about Alec Morris...don't hear much about him. there's Simms and Elay(spelling).I know we have Cooper Bateman coming in and they are all pocket qb's for maybe the exception of Simms.How about it Crimsonsurfer...runtheoption...anyone?
