Clinton-Dix, Kouandjio leaving Alabama early for NFL Draft

Not since, well,?Barkevious Mingo?has a college prospect been so anticipated by the NFL media as Ha Ha Clinton-Dix. It seems like everyone likes saying his name.

The Alabama safety and his teammate Cyrus Kouandjio are?leaving school a year early?to enter the NFL Draft, according to Alex Scarborough of ESPN.com.

Both could be first-round picks.

Clinton-Dix, a free safety, was likely headed out anyway, after a suspension this year for receiving improper benefits.

But left tackle Kouandjio?s future was more of a question, as he said he was 50-50 on leaving before the Sugar Bowl.

Either way, the pair of them provide us with another wonderful name, and a new entry into our spellcheck dictionary.
