Alabama expected to lose Kouandjio, Clinton-Dix to NFL Draft
Alabama is losing potential first-round talents Cyrus Kouandjio and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix to the NFL draft
"He's gone," the source said of Kouandjio, while putting Clinton-Dix's chances to leave at 99 percent.
Players must declare by Jan. 15.
Kouandjio is considered a first-round talent but did not play well in the Tide's Sugar Bowl loss to Oklahoma. He has also battled injuries at Alabama, which affected his strength early on. But make no mistake, maximizing Kouandjio's potential could pay huge dividends for an NFL team. CBSSports.com draft analyst Rob Rang lists the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Kouandjio as the seventh overall prospect in May's draft.
Clinton-Dix is widely considered the best safety in the draft and was a no-brainer to declare months ago.
Linebacker Adrian Hubbard is also expected to declare. Alabama is waiting to hear from defensive lineman Jeoffery Pagan. The Tide would like to keep him and believe there's a chance.
