The chance of Alabama losing more juniors to the NFL draft sounds unlikely. An Alabama spokesman said Thursday there was nothing new to report on the matter. The deadline for juniors to declare for the NFL draft is Saturday.Izzy Gould: Alabama unlikely to see any more juniors jump to the NFL ED. (by Todd) - Hold the phone on that one, Izzy Gould is reporting that Mark Barron will be holding a press conference tomorrow at 11:30. Personally, I'm scratching my head on this. A) Why hold a press conference if you are staying?, but B) Why leave if you are recovering from surgery and won't be able to participate in the combine or work out for teams before the draft? If he's leaving, then Barron (or someone in his ear...) must think pretty highly of himself to take such a big risk.
