Chris Allen coming back
Leggo

AL.com - Allen returning to Alabama

quote:

Sources: Alabama All-SEC outside linebacker Christopher Allen is expected to return to school instead of turning pro.

Led the SEC with 13 tackles for a loss this season and was viewed in the NFL scouting world as a potential Day 2 draft pick.

If he gets back to the way he looked in that A day game before he started getting hurt he is going to be a problem.

He pretty much looked like that the 2nd half of the year. He was a damn wrecking ball.

That's about it right?

The only others would be senior decisions from Forristal, Owens and B-Rob.

re: Chris Allen coming back
I 'm really interested to see if Owen stays cause he is a vocal leader on the team even when he doesn't play. It is time for Forristall to get that get that Hale Hentges money . I would love to see what BRobs draft grade would be based on his limited miles. I think the NFL draft committee might like him more than some Bama fans do.

Agree, I've thought BRob would leave and get drafted at a decent spot. Low mileage, good tape.

Jobe is definitely the big one. Replacing Surtain will be hard enough, but replacing him and Jobe will be really tough.

If he went pro I would consider that a bad decision on his part.

I think it’s a Hellams/Battle combo now. Hellams was lights out once he was inserted into the starting lineup

Jobe should definitely return. He didn't exactly have a great NC game to springboard into the draft with.

Feel like Branch is too good to only play in Dime, IMO.

Great news! Now we need Mathis and Jobe back on defense. And Owens and Robinson back on offense. Wouldn’t mind Forrestal too.

I am still not convinced that declaring isn't the best path if he gets a second round grade. I am happy to be wrong but it is possible he has already hit his ceiling. He could end of like Shaun Wade, hurting his position if he takes on the primary corner role and has a bad year. I think if he truly dedicates himself he can improve I'm a few areas but I don't know if he can improve his draft position to many spots from this year to next year. I don't get the impression he is a 1st round talent with another year under his belt. Hope he proves me wrong.

ETA: Forget everything I said, he coming back
