Nick Saban: Late Round Picks Who Leave School Early Lose Out 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Sun Apr 7, 2019 12:29 pm

Nick Saban says late round prospects who leave school early lose out on the process.

Seven of Alabama\'s underclassmen declared for this month\'s NFL draft.

\"Now, we have guys that have no draft grades, seventh-round grades, free-agent grades, fifth-round grades that are going out of the draft. And the person that loses in that is the player,\" Saban said after Alabama\'s spring game. \"If you\'re a third-round draft pick, and we had one here last year -- I\'m not going to say any names -- goes and starts for his team, so he\'s making third-round money, which is not that great. He\'d be the first guy taken at his position this year, probably, and make $15-18 million more.

\"So, the agent makes out, the club makes out, and now they\'ve got a guy that\'s going to play for that kind of money for three more years, all right? And everybody out there\'s saying, \'Well, get to your next contract.\' Well, there\'s obviously 50 percent of these guys never getting to a next contract. And that doesn\'t mean all the rest of them got to one, either.\"

That should be obvious.
