I don't know why Daniel Wright would leave? Does he think he's gonna get passed over, so might as well? Does Ben Davis stay to get another degree? Maybe a BIT more playing time? Sanders is already passing him, right? Why does Labryan Ray leave? Frustration? Surely not to get paid. All of these should come back, AS SHOULD JOBE, if they want to improve their draft status. Jobe might be a 2nd rounder if he leaves, but still a bit raw. P Mathis will play his way to a good draft spot by coming back. I also wish Dylan would stay, but I agree he will probably go. Hate to see Barmore go, but he and Surtain are the only losses on D that really hurt me.
Who stays and who goes in the TE position group will be interesting. What if Arik Gilbert lands in Tuscaloosa? Supposedly Bama’s very much in the hunt. Having Gilbert and Billingsley on the field at the same time would definitely stress defenses. Talk about matchup nightmares.
I don't know man. He did some impressive shit this year... That versatility is pretty rare, plus he's tall as shit.
I think he’s projected 6th round at best. Most 6th rounders don’t make the cut. Just depends on what he wants. He can make the same money or more if he stays another year and get more experience with Saban if he’s thinking a coaching route... or maybe he’s fine with using his degree and getting a job. I really don’t know... but it would not be shocking if he stayed.
Which is why I said I would not be shocked if he stays. His NFL payout is going to be the same be it this year or next... however there are advantages to learning coaching systems if he stays... if he’s interested in that route. I have no idea if he is...
