ANNOUNCEMENT:Jalen Milroe announced resignation and departure from the squad…

Alabama Crimson Tide football underwent a lot of change heading into the 2024 college football season. A new head coach, a new-look SEC, a refreshed roster and an expanded College Football Playoffs. One thing that Alabama fans can count on to stay the same is stating quarterback Jalen Milroe.

The incumbent quarterback had a rocky start to the 2023 season. After competing in the 2023 offseason with Ty Simpson and Tyler Buchner, Milroe won the starting job and then was abruptly benched in the Week 3 road game against USF. He finished the season strong and is now considered a legitimate Heisman Trophy Candidate.

Though a lot can change over the course of an entire college football season, early projections for the 2025 NFL draft have Milroe being selected in the first round.

For The Win‘s latest mock draft projects Milroe going No. 8 overall to the Seattle Seahawks, Fox Sports has him being selected No. 18 overall to the Cleveland Browns and Touchdown Wire believes the Pittsburgh Steelers draft him at No. 14 overall.

There’s no telling where Milroe, or other draft eligible players will land in the 2025 NFL draft. As for the Alabama quarterback, he can turn a lot of heads and raise some eyebrows if he picks up where he left off at the end of last season and carries this revamped Crimson Tide team without Nick Saban to the College Football Playoffs to compete for a national championship.

Roll Tide Wire will continue to follow Milroe and Alabama football news as the 2024 offseason progresses.

Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe will attend the 28th annual Manning Passing Academy camp from June 27-30, per FOX 8’s Garland Gillen.

Milroe will serve as a counselor alongside nine other SEC quarterbacks: Carson Beck (Georgia), Brady Cook (Missouri), Jaxson Dart (Ole Miss), Grant Nussmeier (LSU), Quinn Ewers and Arch Manning (Texas), Graham Mertz (Florida), Jackson Arnold (Oklahoma) and Blake Shapen (Mississippi State).

The Manning Passing Academy is owned and operated by Archie, Cooper, Peyton and Eli Manning. The football family created this camp due to the concern that even the “most basic fundamental skills of throwing and catching a football were lacking during a youngster’s developmental years (grades 8-12),” the official camp website wrote.

Gillen also reported that this year’s event at Nicholls State, Thibodaux, La., is the largest ever as there are expected to be 1,500 campers from grades 8-12.

“For 27 years, the Manning Passing Academy has been helping players fully realize their potential on and off of the football field,” the official site says. “Whether you’re a QB, RB, WR, or TE, the Manning Passing Academy will help you grasp the fundamentals of your position, and basic offensive and defensive strategies. We’ve gathered some of the most successful and brightest coaches and players from the professional, college, and high school ranks to help all campers learn from the best.”

Milroe is a great candidate for a counselor position, as in his first year as Alabama’s starter this past season, he completed nearly 66 percent of his pass attempts for 2,834 yards, 23 touchdowns and six interceptions. The dual-threat also ran for an additional 531 yards and 12 touchdowns, while leading the Crimson Tide to a spot in the College Football Playoff.

Milroe is aiming for Alabama’s 19th National Championship victory and the first under new head coach
