    11 Seniors
    Burrow
    Lewis
    Magee
    Traore
    Dillon
    Sullivan
    Lawrence
    Fehoko
    Fulton
    Divinity
    Ferguson

    Very likely

    CEH DECLARED
    Jefferson DECLARED
    Delpit DECLARED
    Chaisson DECLARED

    Somewhat likely
    Moss DECLARED
    Cushenberry DECLARED

    50/50
    Charles DECLARED
    Shelvin STAYING
    Stevens STAYING

    Could happen with a Natty
    Deculus STAYING
    Phillips DECLARED
    Queen DECLARED
    Logan STAYING
    Vincent STAYING
    Farrell STAYING

    The only player I think it's really critical is Cushenberry. He's the glue for our offensive line.

    None of these guys are going to go very high. All could benefit from another year in college as could Cushenberry.

    I would love to see Moss come back but he is ready for prime time and with Gilbert coming in I'm not worried about the tight end position. It would be fun to see what they would do with both of them in some 2 TE sets though.

    I don’t think it would be good for the below to leave early.

    I didn't realize those two were Jrs. Shit we are screwed at LB if they both bounce.

    My guess is they both stay. Both are borderline draftable players. They both stand a great chance to be terrific leaders of our defense next season and improve their draft stock to a 3rd/4th rounder.

    Hopefully Orgeron is making strides at winning hearts and minds. This is another key skill for modern coaches.

    I'd love to see them all come back and so would all fans but it's a business decision each player has to make. Probably the most important decision of their young lives. When weighing the projected draft position money against the gamble of either inproving their position or getting injured and throwing in the needs of their families I couldn't in good conscience advise a player who is ready and who's family who has sacrificed for him and needs his support as of yesterday to return.

    Just hope to keep more of the guys who could seriously improve their stock by coming back. I agree with celebrating the good ones as they climb the ladder.

    Highly agree with this, not because they are that great, but for continuity. We're going to lose Magee and Lewis. With a new, relatively inexperienced QB, we sure don't need to be replacing 4 starters on the o-line as well.
