Crimson Tide . Najee Harris. 1. player. 829. . Running Back

Reports state Najee is set on declaring for the NFL Draft. This is somewhat of a surprise given that he is not considered a top 5 RB in this class. Najee would do well to return to Alabama for one more season. He would be in the conversation to be the first back off the board in 2021. However, early indications are that he will declare for the 2020 draft. Maybe a few scouting reports or a mediocre draft grade could convince him to stay, but that seems like a longshot.

Chance of return – 20 percent

Draft projection – 3rd-4th round.

. Wide Receiver. Crimson Tide . Jerry Jeudy. 2. player. 829

There is no point in Jerry Jeudy returning. He has done everything possible in his three years with Alabama football. He has a national title, a Biletnikoff Award, and numerous receiving records. He is the consensus No.1 WR in this draft and many experts are calling him the best receiver prospect in years. He will be making millions of dollars next year in the NFL as a probable top-10 pick and potential top-5 pick.

There is no situation in which I could see Jeudy playing his Senior season, but if there is one thing I’ve learned in my years watching sports it’s, never say never. Still, this is as close to a sure thing as you can get.

Chance of return – <1 percent

Draft outlook – Top 10 overall
