Greg McElroy admits there will be overreaction either way, but the ESPN analyst has offered a preview of Saturday’s Alabama spring game from a quarterback perspective as it relates to Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson.

“We’re going to draw some ridiculous comparisons to yesteryear, and ‘Oh, it’s not as good as Bryce Young, or I don’t know if he’s quite Mac Jones, or I don’t know if he has that Tua (Tagovailoa) instinct feel.’ Fine,” McElroy said.

McElroy recalled similar rumblings from years ago, starting at the beginning of the Nick Saban era in 2009 and 2011, about QB competitions at Alabama.

“I’ve heard pretty much every time there’s been a competition at the position that there’s problems at the quarterback spot,” McElroy said. ‘We’re just not sure.’ That’s par for the course. We’re probably not going to find out in the spring game. Both quarterbacks, both Jalen Milroe and Ty Simpson can go out and throw 3 picks each and it doesn’t mean they can’t play on Saturdays in the fall. Don’t freak out if they look bad and don’t give them the Heisman if they look great.”

He’s heard all the buzz, including this week from Paul Finebaum, over some 7 times, but the QB position at Alabama has largely been in good shape, he said.
