The announcements became official today, during a news conference at the Alabama Football Complex, that three key players to this year's championship team won't be returning for their senior seasons.  Running back Eddie Lacy, defensive back Dee Milliner, and offensive lineman D. J. Fluker will skip their senior seasons and enter the NFL draft.

Lacy, the national championship game MVP, rushed for 1,300 yards and scored 17 touchdowns in 2012-2013.  Milliner totaled 54 tackles, 22 pass deflections, and 2 interceptions.  Fluker graded out at 89% for the season and started in 29 straight games dating back to his freshman year. 

All three are projected to be first round draft picks.
