    Well, they are probably worried about the wrong guy. It would likely be Lia.

    way too early way too optimistic.

    I am not even sure Tua is going to be drafted in 1st round. Lot more progress to be accomplished and injuries can completely change a player.

    Of course, injuries can derail any career, but multiple people in this thread keep saying this same thing, and honestly, it's just fans trying to be (falsely) modest. Seriously, I just watched Daniel Jones - whom I'd never even heard of prior to the Combine - get drafted at #6. If his skillset is what it takes to get drafted in the Top 10 as a QB, then it will take an absolute act of God to keep Tua out of the Top 3, if not #1 overall.

    Let's get real: Tua is the most developed pure passer that has played college football in at least the last decade, and as long as he's remotely healthy, a half dozen NFL teams will be willing to pay a king's ransom to get him. And Trevor Lawrence will be a year behind him in exactly the same boat.

    I think its fair to question how early in the 1st Tua will go (barring injury) but I agree with you that people who think Tua isn't going round one are off. If he produces similarly to last year he's going round 1. When in round one and will any QBs go ahead of him are more valid questions.

    But, i've been wrong before.

    Of course not. And I don't think I implied that it would?

    For Tua to be top 5 picks, He has to continue to do what he does best with showing improvement in his reading coverages on the field, making the progressions from left to right, and knowing when to check down to RB or TE. I think his biggest test are in November/ December.

    Tua’s biggest issue is he seems fragile. He was hurt early and often last year. If he goes through the season uninjured he may be Bama’s first number one draft pick. If he gets hurt as often as last year, I look for second round. The arm and head are solid.

    Bama has had a #1 NFL draft pick. He was a QB too.

    Yes it happened, but I doubt anyone celebrated it to include Harry Gilmer.

    But if you are seriously counting Gilmer then you yourself are off by 1.

    They just don't want to get beaten by the back-up QB again. I cannot imagine what Tidefans would be like if the situation was reversed.
    Architects do it with models.

    Not in the modern era though. Which is mostly what matter when discussing NFL history/records at this point.

    There is a reason no one pays attention to AFL or NFL championships before the merger. The Super Bowl is all that matters.
