Alabama's Eddie Lacy, Dee Milliner and D.J. Fluker enter NFL draft

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. Alabama tailback Eddie Lacy, cornerback Dee Milliner and right tackle D.J. Fluker are entering the NFL draft.

Lacy and Milliner announced their plans to skip their senior seasons Friday at a news conference. Coach Nick Saban says Fluker couldn't be there but made the same decision.

Milliner is considered a potentially early first-round pick. He had two interceptions and 22 pass deflections.

Lacy was MVP of the national championship game after rushing for 140 yards and scoring two touchdowns.

The 6-foot-6, 335-pound Fluker started 35 games for the Tide and was a second-team Associated Press All-American.

Fluker is regarded as likely early round selections.

"Lacy's 157-yard, two-touchdown performance in the 42-14 national title win over Notre Dame didn't hurt his NFL stock," says's Jeremy Fowler. "'s Rob Rang has Lacy as the draft's top running back, No. 43 overall. With the short shelf life of NFL running backs, Lacy is probably wise to declare."
