Adam Grosbard, SMU beat writer for SportsDayDFW.com and The Dallas Morning News, answered your questions about the Mustangs and the American Athletic Conference in a live chat recently. Here are some highlights:
Do you think that Evan Brown and Mason Gentry have a realistic chance of making the 53-man roster for their respective teams?
Grosbard: I think Brown might. There’s been talk out of New York that he has a good chance to be the Giants’ backup center, and if you’re a backup lineman in the NFL it helps to be able to play multiple positions,, which Brown can doing having played guard for two years at SMU prior to moving to center.
Do you envision Courtland Sutton eventually becoming Denver’s No. 1 receiving threat?
Grosbard: It sure looks that way. Demaryius Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders are getting close to the end of their contracts and might leave Denver after this season, which would clear the depth chart in front of Sutton.
Who in your opinion is the best SMU athlete of all time ?
Grosbard: It’s got to be Doak Walker. No disrespect to Eric Dickerson, but Walker was a national icon in his day and played several positions. Walker is SMU’s only Heisman winner, too. Don’t think many people would debate his place at the top of the SMU pecking order.
How has SMU been recovering from the news that Matthew Huhn has to end his playing career?
Grosbard: Huhn didn’t figure to be a starter this season, so it’s not a big blow on the field in 2018. He was one of the more highly-anticipated OL commits under Chad Morris, though, so it’s sad to his career end before he got to play a game in college.
