2014 NFL Draft: Alabama LB Adrian Hubbard reportedly to turn pro
Alabama LB Adrian Hubbard will be the first Crimson Tide underclassman to declare for the 2014 NFL Draft, according to CBSSports.com's Jeremy Fowler.
Hubbard, 6-feet-5 and 252 pounds, had 31 tackles and three sacks in 12 games this season. He is rated as the No. 2 junior outside linebacker in the country by NFLDraftScout.com, and projected to be a late-first or early-second round pick.
Hubbard is a "lanky pass rusher" who boasts a good combination of length, athleticism and versatility, according to NFLDraftScout.com Senior Analyst Rob Rang, who compares the redshirt junior's skill-set to that of Dolphins 2013 first round pick Dion Jordan.
Hubbard also provides scheme versatility with his experience lining up as a defensive end as well as at outside linebacker in head coach Nick Saban's defense.
Fellow Crimson Tide underclassmen defensive lineman Jeoffrey Pagan and left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio have yet to state their intentions. Underclassmen have until Jan. 15 to officially declare for May's draft.
