Kirkpatrick announced last week that he would leave Alabama and declare for the 2012 NFL draft. While the Thorpe Award finalist is believed to be one of the top coverage corners in the country, it is also believed that this arrest may hurt his draft status. Kirkpatrick won two national championships with Alabama in his three years at the school.
