Kouandjio, Clinton-Dix lead Bama players leaving

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- All-America left tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix are leading a contingent of Alabama players leaving early for the NFL.

Those two Crimson Tide stars were joined in announcing their departures Thursday by linebacker Adrian Hubbard and defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan.

Clinton-Dix and Kouandjio are widely projected as first-round picks. Hubbard and Pagan also could be early-round selections.

The 6-foot-6, 310-pound Kouandjio was a first-team Associated Press All-American.

Clinton-Dix had 52 tackles and two interceptions. He missed two games after accepting a short-term loan from an assistant strength and conditioning coach who's no longer employed by the university.

Alabama has had 11 first-round picks in the last four years, more than any other team. Eleven of the 13 players who have left early under Nick Saban were first-rounders.
