Alabama Trio of Underclassmen Declare for 2017 NFL Draft
Three Alabama underclassmen will join a deep group of seniors that will depart Tuscaloosa for the 2017 NFL Draft.
The team held a press conference on Friday to officially announce that redshirt sophomore defensive back Marlon Humphrey, junior offensive tackle Cam Robinson, and redshirt junior wide receiver ArDarius Stewart would forego their remaining eligibility to turn professional.
Before each player took the podium to discuss their future, head coach Nick Saban spoke about these players and what they've meant to the program.
"Each one of these individuals have done an outstanding job of doing the right things when it comes to developing a career off the field by making progress toward a degree and putting themselves in position to graduate within the next year as well as the great job that they've done helping themselves develop a career on the field with the contribution they've made, the development that they've had, the improvement and hard work that they've done," Saban said.
Each of the three players spoke for a couple minutes to discuss their experience at Alabama and the reason they decided to turn pro. You can watch the full press conference in the video above.
