Two Alabama standout juniors will be leaving Tuscaloosa a year early to pursue careers at the next level.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio and safety Ha Ha Clinton-Dix will declare for the 2014 NFL Draft. Yahoo's Rand Getlin also reported that Clinton-Dix will declare for the draft.

Both players were consensus All-Americans in 2014 are considered potential first round picks.

Despite a poor performance in the Sugar Bowl when Alabama gave up seven sacks, the 6-foot-5, 310-pound Kouandjio is considered one of the best offensive tackle prospects in the draft. Kouandjio played in eight games as a true freshman and started all 14 games at left tackle as a sophomore and all 13 games as a junior.

Despite serving a two-game suspension for receiving a loan from a strength and conditioning coach (which he later repaid), Clinton-Dix was named first team All-SEC and consensus All-American. The 6-foot-1, 208-pound safety registered 52 tackles and two interceptions on the season.
