    I am curious as to why you don't think he would get a high draft grade? Rbs are not at a premium they once were but in my eyes he fits the mold of what they lean towards, shifty, fast, can catch extremely well, punishing blocker down field, special teams ace, return man. In my eyes I don't think he lacks any skill and he seems to excel at EVERYTHING. I don't follow any team as I do ours but it would not surprise me if he is first RB taken in the draft. Late first-2nd round pick.I guess I just don't see how he could improve his stock by staying.
    Again I am not claiming to know anything beyond what I have seen this year.
    I've just never seen him even given a grade nor any talk from NFL draft people about him. I personally have high regard for him, like most Bama fans, but I've never seen any "NFL" type guys comment on him. In relation to another poster, JJ is a completely different style player from Kamara. Kamara has great speed and quickness.

    Coach Bryant was head coach at Maryland so there's that...

    Don't think so at all.....................Taulia and Tyson both will be in Crimson, so let the QB competition begin

    Neither have I. I just feel if he can shine as bright as he has on bama's loaded roster, he has to be on their radar. May be that he has kind of came out of nowhere, that catch he made against Auburn where he looked over inside shoulder and adjusted to his outside shoulder with guys draped all over him is elite for a RB. We will start to see his name shortly. I also ask myself if he can improve his stock and I don't think there is anything he can do in that regard. Another thing that shocked me is that he is listed at 225#!! He just seems smaller than that.

    Based on the season he is having he is definitely on their radar and like you, I have not seen any NFL guys talk about him but JJ combines speed, vision and physicality that they will drool over. I was the poster comparing him to Kamara but I was not talking about style necessarily but in the way you can use him by putting him anywhere on field and using him as a slot receiver (JJ has very good receiving skills) as well as in the backfield. If he does decide to go pro I would be surprised if he did not go in the first three rounds.

    I agree. I see no reason why he couldn't do what Christian McCaffrey's doing in the league.

    Wouldn't Josh be able to do the kind of things Kenyan Drake has done in the NFL? Personally I think that Josh is someone's explosion waiting to happen.
