Booker was a guy I thought would have had a chance. Worley another.
I don't think Lattimore was on my radar before the season, but Hooker and Brown were based on hype. Barrett didn't have the season he expected. Hubbard didn't ever seem to seriously consider it. Conley was a no brainer. Samuel became that after about one game. Hooker the same. I think I even wrote that in the first 10 things of the year, or maybe second.
I'll probably do a Five for Friday about the next wave of deciders for 2017. I have no idea what the number will look like, but the large number of guys who could have left early did not surprise me. Also remember that this is just the way it is right now. All the more reason not to redshirt anybody but line of scrimmage guys and QBs.
