I had the same question. No doubt Sanders in high school showed enough potential to sign with Bama and reports before the injury were positive. I absolutely believe he will contribute but Najee coming back, he will be the man. He has shown he can do it over three years and especially this year.
Bro, you said that he will "rise to the top" even ahead of Najee and was a "special player" based on what people on message boards said about how he looked... in practice? Come on man. I dont know anyone that doesn't think Sanders has loads of potential but making assertions like that without ever actually seeing him play is pretty far-fetched IMO.
There's too many good backs.
I am pretty sure we are just going to find out he isn't going to the draft when he doesn't announce anything by next Monday night. Najee seems more and more to be one who doesn't announce things he doesn't need to announce. Staying is not something he has to say publicly, only to the coaches, just not say he is going by the deadline and he stays.
