Just taking a look at last seven NFL drafts. Read some pre-draft fluff from so-called SME's about 2018 draft being outstanding with Darnold and Rosen having high upsides. Also read 2017 QB class was considered weak (L. Zierlein, NFL; Kiper, ESPN).
Not sold on most of NFL teams or media having competent QB evaluation capability ... any thoughts on recent drafts?
I like Ridder's upside and potentially Corral's after Rhule is let go.
To your point Judge Keller® Pickett was 25-39 with 2 TD's vs Tigers in 2021. Good but not mind blowing. But Howell outplayed Pickett in 2019 & 2020 until UNC RB & WR talent left for NFL in 2021. It'll be interesting to see them compete along with TL16 and more over next decade.
Just imagine if we would have had Trevor stay last season & then take his covid season this year. We would have been undefeated going into the playoffs last season & we would win a National Championship this season.
If we would have had Hunter Renfrow stay for 3 covid years we might have won 3 more National Championships.
3rd and Renfrow became a real crutch that the Raiders stole!
