Do overs in football are completely nonexistent, but I'm guessing if there is one player that could use one, it would be Alabama's Cyrus Kouandjio.
Coming into the season, Kouandjio was considered a guaranteed first-round pick, ranking as high as the top-10 on some experts' big boards. However, that sentiment seems to have changed ever since the Crimson Tide kicked off their season against Virginia Tech on Aug. 31.
In that game, Kouandjio played well, for the most part, but he did further expose some weaknesses that scouts had previously been concerned with—not the least of which involved an inability to redirect and close off the inside lane when asked to change directions.
For a while now, scouts had known that Kouandjio had not been the most fleet of foot and somewhat struggled in space, but this season seems to have brought a whole new light to these chief concerns.
For instance, in Bama's last game against Ole Miss, Kouandjio again struggled with balance and footwork throughout the game. Overall, he looked sloppy and inconsistent and brought clout to the phrase "heavy-legged waist-bender," made famous by NFL Network Analyst Mike Mayock.
Because of these concerns, it's becoming more and more apparent that Kouandjio's future is probably no longer at left tackle but rather inside or at the right tackle position, where he is much better suited.
Whatever the case may be, it goes without saying that Kouandjio's stocked has slipped, no matter what Nick Saban may think.
He's clearly fallen behind players like Jake Matthews, Taylor Lewan and Antonio Richardson in terms of draft prospects, and he may very well need to change positions in order to recover some of his falling draft stock.
