Alabama linebacker Adrian Hubbard plans to leave the Crimson Tide a year early for the NFL, according to a source.
Hubbard, an imposing 6-foot-5, 252-pound linebacker who recorded 31 tackles and three sacks in 12 games, has notified the team of his intentions. CBS Sports draft analyst Rob Rang projects Hubbard as a top-two-round pick.
Alabama also is expected to lose safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the draft a year early. The draft status of defensive lineman Jeoffrey Pagan and left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio is still uncertain.
