With news that potential top ten pick — Michigan Wolverines offensive tackle Taylor Lewan — decided to return to school for his senior season, teams looking for help along the offensive line have to enjoy the news that Alabama Crimson Tide’s offensive tackle D.J. Fluker will enter the 2013 NFL Draft, per TideSports.com.
Fluker finished the 2012 campaign as a member of the First-Team All-SEC squad, along with being a member of the national championship team. Fluker was also named a second-team All-American.
The 6-foot-6, 335-pound Fluker was a key part of Alabama’s dominating offensive line this season. He is projected to be selected in the late-first or early-second round in April’s draft.
Alabama is still awaiting word on underclassmen cornerback Dee Milliner and running back Eddie Lacy. The duo is expected to announce their decisions tomorrow. It would be surprising if at least one of the underclassmen did not declare for the 2013 draft.
