    Yes, he is coming back. He wants to finish his degree and play one more year with his brother, Corey.

    I think Georgia is a little high on their list. I think their defense will have to be completely re-built.

    As for us, we should be a much improved team overall. I've been impressed with our backup OL, so I don't see much of a drop off there. With Cooper and Black plus the other WR's we have they should be a force and even if our only RB coming in was Henry we should be unstoppable running the ball.

    Defensively we don't lose much and all the talent on that side of the ball should be more experienced.

    Our biggest downside could be leadership again, but this time on both sides of the ball. We'll just have to see who develops as a leader.

    he may not, but he definitly should come back...
    i think he could improve his draft status significantly by staying for his senior year.

    He's a great source on this matter because he's close to our program AND the NFL franchises through the Senior Bowl. If he thinks he's coming back then he probably has a great idea of McCarron's draft grade if he asked for information. I think McCarron is a 3rd round grade right now and Saban usually gets back everyone who doesn't have a 1st round draft grade to come back. Kareem Jackson was an exception...he had a 2nd round grade but he got into the 1st round.

    I think it is hearsay. The real evidence is that McCarron looks like a 3rd round grade if he requests information from the draft board. Saban gets back almost everyone who grades out below first round.

    A real bonus would be if we could get just one of: Milliner, DJ, Mosley, and Lacy back. I think there's a really good chance that they all leave. Saban has alluded to Fluker leaving early, I think there's no chance in hell Milliner comes back, and he shouldn't have to, because he could be a top 10 pick. I think Lacy will leave, but we should be more than fine with Yeldon, and Fowler and Hart coming back healthy, in addition to Altee and Henry coming in. Kenyon Drake, imo, will be substantially better with a year under his belt, too. CJ will probably be picked in the mid-late 20's, and Saban definitely gives a player of his, that is a projected first round pick, the green light to go, but another poster said on another thread that apparently, CJ is/was leaning towards staying.

    Mosley has some things he could improve on in college...he's still just about a solid low 1st round pick already though. I think he could enhance his career by showing some growth as a base defense LB but the things he does well are already top-tier.
