    Exactly why. Probably should have had a caption under the picture to explain or prevent any confusion.

    This is the headline.
    “Ross Pierschbacher gives his best guess at Alabama's OL next season”
    So, it was clear that the article wasn’t about Pierschbacher but the OL for next season.
    Anyway, my $0.02. RTR

    Who is the smallest successful NFL QB ever? Doug Flutie? Well Kyler Murray is no Doug Flutie. He better hope he doesn't get sacked. Ever.

    Going to the Raiders would set the franchise back even further. That would mean you gave up Mack or Cooper for Kyler, right? Or is this their pick?

    Bingo! Too much of a risk...he's Doug Flutie 2.0. Great college player...too small for NFL career of any length. But some idiot GM will draft him in the 1st round and proclaim him the second coming of Patrick Mahomes.

    Rules are far different now. Defensive lineman get flagged for sacking the QB and falling on them. Seriously, there's a rule that a player cannot fall with his full body weight on a QB. If there's anytime a QB like Kyler Murray could succeed in the NFL it's now..

    I hope more teams pick these QBs that seemingly look good in college. This would help some of our Bama guys so they go to better teams.

    While I hate to admit it, you're 100% correct...

    That's probably true. But I still wouldn't touch him in the 1st round

    Considering no player is a first round lock it's probably worth the risk for some teams. Half the players picked in the first round are busts so it's not a bad idea to try and hit on a franchise QB. I'd rather roll the dice on Murray than Haskins or Daniel Jones from Duke. Not a strong QB class..

    Maybe but that doesn't mean they all have an equal chance of succeeding. I'd take Haskins over Murray any day. I have no desire to draft Daniel Jones in the 1st either and would tempted to bet on Murray's upside over Jones if I had to pick one.


    That said, I'm sure some team will take Murray in the 1st and there may be a few teams that it wouldn't be the worst pick for. Not sure what those teams would be though off the top of my head.

    I will fully admit that I am biased in this case by the fact that Redskins fans seem to want him and his fit here would be terrible. I don't think Murray will succeed in the NFL but I KNOW he won't succeed if the Redskins draft him.

    All that said, if I'm a GM I'm not drafting him in the 1st. Way too big of a risk IMO unless you are a QB away. Then you may be able to take on that risk.
