Four juniors on the Alabama football team announced Thursday that they would be skipping their senior season in favor of the NFL Draft.

News started breaking this afternoon with ESPN’s Adam Schefter tweeting out the first news.

Other Alabama players who are leaving Tuscaloosa early include defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan and linebacker Adrian Hubbard. There are up to 10 Alabama underclassmen who were contemplating putting their names in the NFL draft hat.

The four juniors that are leaving all made their intentions known at a press conference Thursday afternoon. After Nick Saban said a few words about the contributions each player made to the program, they individually took the microphone to announce the decision.

Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Cyrus Kouandjio have both received an first-round draft grade from the NFL.
