Bored again. Thought I'd throw this up here. Plenty of attrition in this class so far and could see more along the grad transfer route. These men will be seniors and redshirt juniors this time next year and I'll be curious how their leadership develops. I'll also throw in whether or not I think they'll matriculate to the NFL after this season.
Mecole Hardman--ATH--Starter--Can't see him going to the NFL this year unless he really comes on in the back half. He is fast, but so is everyone else in the NFL
Isaac Nauta--TE--Starter--Seems to be coming into his own this year. Could see him making the jump to the NFL, but probably wouldn't be taken high unless he balls out the remainder of the year.
Julian Rochester--DL--Starter (?)--Not sure if he's a starter, but he plays a bunch. Most likely returning for his senior season.
Ben Cleveland--OG--Starter--Was coming into his own at the end of last year. Kept his starting job. Down with an injury but should be back in a few weeks. Doubt he jumps for the NFL, especially with the injury.
Michail Carter--DL--Never hear about this guy. I assume he's playing but I never hear his name called.
Charlie Woerner--TE--Plays a bunch. Will be back for senior season. Could be a monster next year. I think he has a bright future in the NFL.
Elijah Holyfield--RB--Starter. Will probably be back for his senior year unless he kills it with the time he has left this year. Can't see him going higher than 2/3rd round...sometimes that's enough for guys to jump. Obviously doesn't need the $ like some, but may want to stop going to class.
Riley Ridley--WR--Starter. I feel as though he's about to break out big time. Might need to come back for that senior year.
Tyler Clark--DL--Starter--Best d-line prospect in this class. Could make the jump the the pros.
Tyler Simmons--WR--Great on special teams. Got great speed. Another guy I have a feeling will eventually break through.
David Marshall--DE--Not a starter but plays plenty of snaps. Currently injured. I think he could be a freak of nature next year but that may just be me.
Tyrique McGee--DB--Swiss army knife. Plays all over. Good, but not good enough to jump early to NFL.
Brian Herrien--RB--Done quite a bit with what's been given to him. Sometimes he looks like he could be the man, other times he seems tentative hitting the hole. Have to think he will be back for senior season.
Solomon Kindley--OG--Starter--Solid but not spectacular. Can't see him jumping but he is a valuable piece on the OL. Seemed like he was in the two deep in 2016 but didn't get on the field. Broke Coach Smart's float.
Marshall Long--P--One would think he is moving on. Camarda blocking him, injury history, and whatnot. Although I thought he would've transferred already, he's still on the team.
Guys already gone: Jacob Eason (has @Eason4Heisman switched to the Huskies board?), Chauncy Manac, Jaleel Laguins, Chad Clay, Chris Barnes, Javon Wims (graduated). None of the transfers outside of Eason have gone to power 5 schools. Not bad production for a class that ranked 4th in the SEC.
