It's basically what we've been telling you, but here's what SI.com is reporting:
Following the 2013 BCS National Championship between the No. 1 ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish and No. 2 ranked Alabama Crimson Tide, at least two key underclassmen from the Alabama offense will be making the jump to the NFL.
Multiple sources within the draft community have confirmed to SI.com draft expert Tony Pauline that Alabama running back Eddie Lacy and offensive tackle DJ Fluker will forgo their final year of eligibility and declare for the 2013 NFL Draft.
Both players should receive first-round consideration.
As the draft approaches, look for the discussion to pick up regarding both of these Alabama prospects. Lacy, in particular, will be valued by teams that like big, physical rushers. A team like the Pittsburgh Steelers immediately comes to mind, with Rashard Mendenhall likely being shown the door this offseason.
Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.

The Steelers would be a great fit for ole "Circle Button"...
Saban usually doesn't approve early going pro announcement from underclassmen until after bowl game may come as a way of telling Tunsil and Kamara we have openings for playing time next year
ding ding ding...with limited spots i think Saban knows who is leaving and who is staying, and is for sure using this on recruiting trail.
