DJ at 48 is a joke. Good grief.

ESPN's has a bunch of headscratchers, but they go both directions for us. DJ is way too low, Mayes is way too high, Parks is probably a bit too low etc...

I dont normally nitpick, but having watched a bunch of DJ...I dont get that one at all. He is physically ready to go....period. Great size, generational arm strength, good feet, and for anyone that has watched him over the last two years....he has really improved on his progressions and accuracy. He is easily the best QB over the last 2 cycles and probably 2021 as well...ESPN is missing something.

Agreed Mayes and Parks....Parks is probably a 5-star on the other sites as the year goes on.

Not to mention, QB is obviously the most important position in football. If the best QB in the country isn’t ranked in the top 15, then these sites are royally screwing up. I mean, there’s no way that anyone can convince me that a whopping 8 RBs deserve to be ahead of DJ, nor 5 WR, nor 4 ATH, nor 2 TE. The thought of the top ranked TE on ESPN’s list [Darnell Washington #8 overall] being more valuable to a program than the nation’s top QB is ludicrous to me.

ESPN pulled this nonsense, to a lesser degree, in 2014 with Deshaun, actually ranking 6 DB ahead of him when he was the #1 QB, lol. None of those corners came close to matching Deshaun’s impact.

Yes, that is laughable. No way I'm taking 47 other players ahead of DJ if I got to pick.

Well personal motivation for him then. Cant wait until hes slinging it for us. Rankings are just a collective guess anyway. Still useful to gage potential ability but not a gurantee of success or lack thereof. You can just look at our roster for the exceptions both ways over past 5 years and more. If they were that accurate Bama would not have lost to us twice in the last 3 Nattys then.

We have 8 commits in the top 50. Bama has 2... just 2! There are a bunch uncommitted, but is this telling or what?!?!? The tide has definitely turned... pun intended.
