Eligible Players Most Likely to Leave Early [Explanation]:

-Minkah Fitzpatrick (DB #29): 6-1 / 201 lbs. [1st Round Prospect]

-Ronnie Harrison (DB #15): 6-3 / 214 lbs. [2nd to 3rd Round Prospect]

-Da’ron Payne (DL #94): 6-2 / 308 lbs. [Contributed as a freshman, put up good numbers as a sophomore in 2016, and could be looking at a break out year as he will receive extended playing time in his third season.]

-Bo Scarbrough (RB #9): 6-2 / 232 lbs. [Needs to show he can stay healthy.]

-Damien Harris (RB #34): 5-11 / 216 lbs. [Will need to separate his self in crowded backfield.]

-Isaiah Buggs (DL #49): 6-5 / 292 lbs. [May be good enough to go in 3rd or 4th round by 2018, but could potentially play his way into the 1st round by staying another year.]

Total Predicted Prospects: 14
