Re: 5* QB Bryce Young

For some reason his release kind of reminds me of Joe Willie. Once he decides to throw, it's gone.

Y'all are giving me goosebumps.

I have already prepared myself for a qb dropoff after Tua.

So you are telling me there's a chance it doesn't happen???

Tua is a generational QB. Honestly, he and Mahomes are the best that I have ever seen at the position. This guy can be GREAT and still not be Tua. I'll take GREAT any day.

It was a little tongue in cheek. I understand that. Think Tua will go down as Bama's best ever, to date.

I think because of his incredible accuracy and footwork he'll be a good pro too.

Excellent pickup at just the right time.

I'd love to get a Jerry Judy clone with a few more inches of height. I know we'll get our pick of a couple good WR with all the ones going pro this year.

Re: 5* QB Bryce Young

Idk how true it is but there was a rumor on twitter that getting Bryce has increased our odds of some WRs that we previously didn't have much of a shot at?

Seems like we'd be pretty high on the list of some top WRs considering we most likely lose JJ and Ruggs this year and then Smitty and Waddle next year. Plenty of opportunity at the WR position in the coming years..

Re: 5* QB Bryce Young

I am curious if this helps with Gilbert (TE). Also curious if we signed Boutte and Smith, would we hang on to Holden, Baker and Jones-Bell? I am not real familiar with any of these receivers. Are they all a big drop off from Jeudy, Ruggs, Smith and Waddle?

Several current commits are tweeting that things are about to get fun with surprises.

Certainly does not hurt. We definitely need to reload at receiver. Probably losing three to the draft and all leaving early.

Could be losing Smoth this season probably likely in fact.

Kid seems to be the total package. Tua's arm and Jalen's feet. It does make me nervous to see a qb hold the ball like a loaf of bread while running around.

We are getting a really good one in Bryce. He is a talent who other elite offensive weapons will want to play with in T-town. Bama was already making progress with Arik Gilbert and he will be at Bama for the Ole Miss game and so will another elite offensive weapon. Let's see how this plays out.

That and his footwork are major areas of improvement. But he passes every other "eye test." We know it's HS competition, but surround him with our 4 and 5 star talent and he's going to excel in our "new" offense.

Agree on footwork. He seems to often stand still and flat-footed in the pocket. But that’s nitpicking a bit.

I think we would hold onto all of them. If it was up to me and we had to give up one it would be Holden. The other four are similar in talent and close in speed to our big 4 now.
