Bama linebacker busts
Seems Moses is the latest in a long line of linebackers that become busts in the NFL. Find it weird and what’s the opinion on why?

Ragland bust, Rashaan Evans bust, Tim Williams bust, rueben Foster bust, Rolando McClain bust for where he was drafted, I’m sure I’m missing more, but that’s all I can think of.

Maybe GMs finally got smart and that’s why Moses didn’t get drafted?

I think the evidence is clear - Alabama overperforms with substandard talent.

How can an UDFA be a bust?

Maybe 5* LB, injured LA prospects are the busts

I assume you have a theory of your own.

I think it's evident that, outside of a few outliers, Alabama linebackers seem to be better than what they actually are.

Ragland

Starter on 3rd NFL contract

Rashaan Evans

Starter. Final year of contract. About to be paid
quote:

Tim Williams

Can you bust from the 3rd round?
quote:

rueben Foster

Injury bust? Is that possible?
quote:

Rolando McClain

Crazy bust. Dude could play. Let’s not act like ability was ever the issue

You forgot some LBs. Let me help you.
Mosley (highest paid LB in league when he signed his last contract)
Hightower - multiple time SB champion. 3 NFL contracts. Greater than $70m in career earnings
Hamilton & Anderson - way outplayed drafted position.

I’m sure I’m forgetting someone.

Of course, someone else mentioned DT already. All time legend. Beast. HOFer.

How many people do you know that think "dint" is a word?

Also, multiple injuries (some undisclosed) without a diagnostic or pro day will do it to you.

He is a good kid. Very talented, with some bad injury luck.

But, keep shitting on a kid just because he didn't see LSU as his path. You seem solid

McClain was a nut job. So was Reuben Foster. The Tuscaloosa PD must be so far up Sabans arse the Hubble telescope wouldn’t help

re: Bama linebacker busts
That’s some major spinning there buddy.

quote:

Mosley (highest paid LB in league when he signed his last contract)

You forgot to mention who paid him that. The most dysfunctional team in the NFL. Same team that made L. Bell one of the highest paid players at his position. Just b/c stupid teams give out stupid contracts doesn’t make them great.

Ragland was drafted high and is on his 4th team already. Definition of journeyman player lol. Starter? Wasn’t he a healthy scratch for the Super Bowl?

And if Evans was worth anything his 5th year option woukd have been picked up. And from what I’ve read, Titans have been frustrated with him.

And Foster is more than just injury. First round talent waived? Who just waives first rounders? That’s the definition of a bust. Doesn’t matter the reason.

quote:

Anderson - way outplayed drafted position.


Way outplayed his draft position? He was a freaking 2nd round pick that never started and the skins didn’t even try to resign him. He signed with the Giants for the minimum this year.

You just made my point, he’s another bust that I forgot about. Thanks.

I’m typing on a phone and could give 2 shuts about spell checking, in case you ‘din’t’ notice.

I could care less about Moses. When I saw him play before he was injured, he wasn’t impressive at all. Highest he would have been drafted was 3rd round without the injuries. He has no instincts. And he would have been added to the list I named earlier eventually anyway....

Most all of their NFL players suck butt tbh.

Hell, it’s been years since they’ve had a player even play in the Super Bowl

They also signed him on because was among the better ILBs in the league at the time. You can argue the other guys aren’t good but Mosley has had a good career.

You ain't wrong, Willy. It's a testament to the program that it could use such buttsuck players and still achieve at a high level. It's pretty incredible, really.
