Prior to the injury, Sunseri had 20 tackles, four pass breakups and two interceptions. His two picks came in the season opener vs. Virginia Tech and against Texas A&M, and both were returned for touchdown.

In 2012, Sunseri finished fourth on the team with 54 tackles, six tackles for a loss, 1.5 sacks, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions.

Sunseri is the fifth Alabama player and fourth Tide defender to announce that he will leave school early.

He joins fellow safety Ha-Ha Clinton-Dix, defensive end Jeoffrey Pagan, linebacker Adrian Hubbard and offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio on the 2014 NFL Draft early entry list.
