Last year we lost 9 early entrants to the draft: Bosa, Darron Lee, Vonn Bell, Eli Apple and Tyvis Powell on Defense. On offense we lost Zeke, Jalin Marshall, Mike Thomas and Cardale Jones. This year the number continues to painstakingly grow as players take the money and run. 

After last years title Bama lost 2 early entrants to the draft: Derrick Henry and their stud defensive end Ashawn Robinson. Players deciding to return for another year despite being draft-eligible Juniors included defensive end Jonathan Allen, safety Eddie Jackson as well as linebackers Reuben Foster, Ryan Anderson and Tim Williams as well as standout tight end O.J. Howard.

I understand and agree in certain situations players are making business decisions in terms of their best interest financially but Its going to be difficult to compete with five-star returning Seniors while ours are in the NFL.
