    Alabama safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will enter the 2014 NFL draft, according to multiple sources.

    A junior, Clinton-Dix finished with 50 tackles and two interceptions in his final season in Tuscaloosa. Alabama finished the season 11-2, losing to Oklahoma 45-31 in the Sugar Bowl.

    Multiple analysts project Dix to be drafted in the top two rounds of the draft and he is widely considered one of the best free safeties available, along with Louisville's Calvin Pryor.

    A source also confirmed a CBS Sports report that Crimson Tide linebacker Adrian Hubbard will also declare for the draft. Hubbard is widely projected as one of the top outside linebackers in the upcoming draft and many analysts expect him to be chosen in the first two rounds.
