    The first non QB taken in the draft will be Fitzpatrick.. and Payne won’t be far behind.
    That’s my prediction.

    I can see that.. Hell Barkley may go 1 or 2 overall
    But there are LOTS of RB that have a chance to be really good in the league that you can get later in first round or 2nd
    There arent many if any Fitzpatrick’s out there.

    I love Fitzpatrick. Wish the saints could land him, but no shot

    Will the 25 limit affect them eventually?

    It will change their strategy some and it won't give them the leeway that they used to have. They'll still be National Championship caliber though. They just won't be able to screw over as many players.

    Not be able to maintain 85 on s/s with many leaving early

    Also, if they miss on some (yes, they have misses), they can't just bury them in the depth chart. They'll eventually have to pay for those misses. Those misses will eventually have to play. Or a lot of freshmens will be seeing playing time. And they'll play with walk-ons. The 25 hard cap on signing each year WILL have an effect on their strategy. Previous strategy was bury the misses in the depth chart and process them. Then replace on the roster in next signing class by signing 30 or 35 4 and 5 stars, greyshirting, blueshirting.

    This was initially what I was getting at. I think the hard 25 will hurt. Numbers say if you max out every year you get 100 players. You can only keep 85. If you on average lose 5 per year early to the draft (which Bama routinely does) that?s max of 75-80 kids on roster by year 4. Then regular attrition drops you to around 65-70 if you lose 1-2 kids per year.

    Does a Bama roster with 70 kids hurt them? Over the last 4 years Bama averaged signing only 1 kid per year over 25 (signed 29 last year). Might free up a couple kids per year. Could be the difference between us getting a Lashley or not.
