Bama’s Eddie Lacy and Dee Milliner will declare for NFL, reports say

We knew it would only be a matter of time before we heard both Eddie Lacy and Dee Milliner would declare for April’s NFL Draft, especially after offensive tackle DJ Fluker declared yesterday.

CBSSports.com is reporting that Lacy and Milliner will forgo their senior seasons in Tuscaloosa and jump to the league.

Lacy and Milliner both had a massive hand in helping Bama win their third national championship in four years Monday night.

Lacy throttled Notre Dame for 20 carries for 140 yards and two total touchdowns. He totaled 204 carries for 1,322 yards and 17 touchdowns in 2012 sharing time with freshman standout TJ Yeldon. Lacy will remind you of Jamal Lewis the way he violently attacks would-be tacklers with his quick feet and physical body.

Milliner asserted himself as the #1 cover-corner in college football from the opening game against Michigan. He was matched up against arguably the best tight end in the country in Notre Dame’s 6-5 Tyler Eifert on Monday, and he more than showed up for the task.

  • Genius move by Notre Dame to come out with a gameplan to throw the ball right at Dee Milliner. That sure worked well.

    • It really was. Not only did Bama punish them and outclass them physically, ND got away from their bread and butter running game, and they never went up-tempo like teams that had success against Saban’s defense. I thought it was a terrible plan overall.

  • Huge losses. TJ Yeldon showed great promise in his rookie season but man am I going to miss Eddie Lacy and that B-button.
    Dee Milliner is a tremendous loss. In my opinion one of the best CB’s going into the draft. He definitely wont be easily replaced.
    I loved that these two had brilliant games that will definitely help them in the draft but I surely hate to see them go. Good luck fellas. Roll Tide.
