10. Work in Progress
Even respected NFL analysts aren’t convinced by Meyer. Pete Prisco made the point that there’s a big difference between recruiting youngsters to a school and trying to build an NFL roster (via FOX Sports). There were even accusations of favoritism and roster manipulation during all three of his college head coach tenures. But this won’t fly at the professional level.
Arguably, Meyer’s first season may be his easiest because the 2020 season was so bad. All he has to do is win a couple of games and he will have achieved more. But of course, the front office will want to see a real project in motion. And if he achieves success then he’s going to have to learn how to play the draft. There’s so much for him to wrap his head around.
