How many more players will Alabama lose between now and 2017?

Our Crimson Tide has lost 7 players since the wrap up of spring practice in April. The ease of transferring has allowed players who can't earn early playing time to quit and play for less powerful programs. This poses a serious problem for us because we can only start 22 players during the season. The rest will have to come off the bench. For this is not ideal, as we recruit so many 4 and 5 star head strong athletes, that coming off the bench is not an option. 

Let's break it down by position starting with quaterbacks. You can only have one. After the second game of the season Jalen Hurts will be the starter. Now you have three upperclassmen, Cooper Bateman, David Cornwell and Blake Barnett, that want be happy. I see two of these guys leaving the program seeking better opportunities before season's end.

We will break down the rest of roster for possible transfers in a later post, so stay tuned. 
How many players do you see leaving? please comment below.
