Jemea and Sweeting, TJ, Orwin, Izaan or Sims (it'll be late, but one of these 2). If Uzzi is cleared, he could also be a mid round guy (bc of the knees).

There is not much you can do to retain juniors who are first or second round material from leaving early, except recruit players who don't have any shot at all in the NFL.

Other juniors bailing out early is a different matter.

If we have a team with no seniors because all our juniors are getting drafted in the first or second round then I think we could do okay.

I can see Sweeting, Barnes (with a good year), Uzzi (if cleared), Cross getting drafted. They all probably stand a pretty darn good chance.

Others that could get drafted: Attaouchu, Orwin, Young, Jamea Thomas. Could see a team taking a chance on Orwin in a later round, but more likely free agent. Pretty sure Attaouchu is as good as gone unless he has a terrible year. Thomas may be a bit too short to play. All in all, we may be cursing our level of talent next year when we're missing all these guys.

what? you guys are crazy. TJ Barnes would have to have a year like Terrance Cody to get drafted and that ain't going to happen. He won't even be a full time player, is fat, too slow and gets blown off the ball by NCAA lineman. Please I swear what are some of you watching?

Sims. No Way, not after next year and maybe not at all.

The only guys with any NFL potential, are Sweeting, Smith and maybe Cross; and I wouldn't be surprised is Smith goes undrafted because he is a tweener and his position is impossible to translate easily. Cross would need a big year and sweeting has a mid to late round chance. Oh I forgot Uzzi, he has a shot. But gaurds typically go later in the drafts, so I put him in the 4th/5th round too. Our system is punishing for OL projections.

Wait, huh?

Hill went early. CPJ's first big draft year is next year, isn't it?

Even if you had put your semicolon in the right place, your query suggests that the qb_depth_chart object is highly denormalized, or this would return multiple records.

So, if it is a given that recruiting cannot improve, then the only way to improve would be through improved coaching?

What about Attouchu? Maybe not going early but has decent draft potential, only thing is he may be a bit shorter than most NFL 3-4 OLB, but I could also be remembering wrong.
