From working the draft as Miami Dolphins head coach to preparing many young potential stars for the NFL, Alabama’s Nick Saban knows a thing or two about the league’s draft process.
So he scratches his head at analysts who are many times way off on a particular player… in other words, they have no idea what they’re talking about.
When asked about one his players, left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio, Saban sounded off on the so-called experts:
“I think a lot of expectations are created with these guys,” Saban said, via AL.com. “I hate it that Mel Kiper and all these guys say this is the No. 1 guy at his position. They don’t even have an idea.”
“And most of the teams haven’t even evaluated them yet when they’re underclassmen,” Saban added . “But what it does create is this expectation that this guy is the best left tackle that ever played the game. So every time he gets beat, well, he isn’t playing very well. But the fact of the matter is, is he still plays pretty well.”
