Friday should be an interesting day around Alabama’s program.
As relayed by 247Sports’ Charlie Potter on Thursday, the Crimson Tide will hold a news conference at noon local time Friday for juniors to announce their intentions for the NFL Draft.

On Wednesday night, news broke that junior wide receiver ArDarius Stewart is expected to declare for the NFL Draft. It will be worth following the other developments in Tuscaloosa as well.
Of course, this has been an eventful week for the Crimson Tide. On Monday, Alabama lost to Clemson in a memorable national championship game. The result spoiled Alabama’s perfect season and the Crimson Tide’s attempt to claim a second consecutive national title.
No matter what happens Friday, it’s fair to assume Alabama won’t experience much of a drop-off in talent. The Crimson Tide’s roster will be stacked with strong young skill. Alabama should enter next season as a favorite to contend for a fourth straight SEC title.
