Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe showed improvement in the passing game throughout spring practice, especially in the Crimson Tide’s spring game at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

Mixed reviews from fans hit the internet about his performance, but the junior looks better than where he was in 2023.

His statistics from A-Day state he completed three of nine passes; however, he suffered three to four dropped balls. Milroe connected with Germie Bernard, a transfer wide receiver from Washington, a few times — including a 52-yard play.

He tossed a couple of dimes to Bernard, and the transfer nearly took one for a touchdown. 

Kalen DeBoer, Alabama’s head coach, told reporters after the game that the Tide has to finish plays on the receiving end.

I took Milroe’s outing into context on Wednesday in a video I did for Touchdown Alabama Magazine. The quarterback room is good for the Tide, but Milroe remains as the guy that should start. My breakdown of his A-Day performance is below.
