Solid spring game, offense definitely has kinks to work out with the new guys but Barrett, Burrow, and Collier all looked pretty solid. Gibson and T-Mac looked very promising as receivers all things considered and Marcus Baugh may finally have his head on straight. O-Line was on roller skates a bit too frequently for my taste but they're still young, hopefully Stud can prove his worth as a coach. Defense hasn't skipped a beat, secondary was phenomenal and the D line finally seems to be rotating good depth instead of relying on 1-2 dominant players. Still room to go, but a good start.

Curtis Samuel looked solid, but left his hands at home at times. Nobody really looked great as the new Devin Smith, but Elevenwarriors fan favorite Nick Connor was looking like a stud with that throwback neck roll.

Just my opinion, but JT is still our best quarterback. His ability to read defenses and execute a precise "west coast" style paying game with short to intermediate throws is unmatched and fits our bevy of running back and wide receiver talent perfectly. Jones, like what was said above, is a tank with a cannon arm but he was only making single read throws instead of going through his progressions. Plus losing or amazing deep threat in Devin Smith will hurt or ability to run super deep throws like we could this year. They're obviously all amazing athletes and people, and it's really splitting hairs on who's the best, but those are my two cents.

You've got my upvote, this may be a few kids who ultimately decided that they wanted to preserve their health. But it's also highly possible that they were told there simply isn't room anymore. Yes, I wish the kids well, and yes I'm glad we're honoring their scholarship for as long as necessary, but this site would lose it's shit with $EC this and $EC that if Alabama released this exact same report. We should try to look at what's going on objectively.
