They're probably the biggest unknown when it comes to the NFL Draft. Who's really hurt? How might have durability issues? Who can't withstand the physical rigors of playing at the highest level.
It's crunch time for the 2021 NFL Draft, with teams making the final touches to their draft boards. It's the time for disinformation, starting revelations, and a whole lot of speculation.
Former NFL coach Jim Mora Jr. has been helping BamaCentral sort through it all.
Until the draft kicks off April 29 in Cleveland, a Mora video segment will appear every day on BamaCentral+, and also as part of our weekly draft updates and Christopher Walsh's All Things CW notes column.
Yes, it's more Mora (sorry, couldn't resist), but the Sports Illustrated analyst has a wealth of information that he's sharing with the FanNation pro and college sites. We've asked him just about everything, including long snappers, and are happy to share it all with you.
For example, when asked about what NFL coaches expect when selecting a Nick Saban-coached player from Alabama, Mora shot down the idea that Crimson Tide prospects are too beat up from their college careers to be successful in the pros.
"They’re physically tough players and they’re mentally tough. It’s not easy to play at Alabama, where you’re always in the spotlight," Mora said. "It’s not easy to play for a man like Nick Saban, who is so demanding in every single way and not just in football, but football, character and off-the-field things. I think Nick has done a tremendous job of taking care of his players and teaching them about life.
“When you get an Alabama player, he’s ready to go. He’s ready to play.”
