Well part of reason Mertz struggled las year was the OL was badIf Mertz was having an enormous career at Wisconsin, some of the best QBs in the nation would be looking at it as an option. Since he isn't, and he was considered a top recruit, they're going to be hesitant on pulling the trigger. Like Fla said. Perception.
That said, we have no idea what happens next with Mertz, but we will find out in a few months. If things don't go well, we might end up seeing the Deacon Hill era at QB sooner than we thought might happen.
I'm not going to predict anything on Hill, because I haven't seen him perform. They say he has a huge arm, and can zip the ball. Also, big, strong, and can shed tacklers.
