Justin Houston became the second Georgia player to declare early for the NFL draft when he announced Saturday that he was turning pro.

Houston, an All-SEC outside linebacker, joins former Georgia star receiver A.J. Green, who announced last week that he was skipping his senior season to enter the draft.

Houston was second in the SEC this season with 10 sacks and collected 17.5 sacks over the past two seasons. With Houston's early exit, that means the Bulldogs are losing four linebackers off this season's team. Darryl Gamble and Akeem Dent were seniors, and Marcus Dowtin is transferring to another school.

Here's an updated list of the SEC underclassmen entering the NFL draft:
