Stanford's losing a whole lot more than just Andrew Luck for next year, with potential top-10 pick Jonathan Martin also leaving.

The Stanford Cardinal are already down the presumed No. 1 pick for next year, as Andrew Luck is set to cash in on a fantastic college career. They'll also lose at least one star offensive linemen, with tackle Jonathan Martin announcing he'll join Luck (and probably guard David DeCastro) in turning pro.

Jonathan A. Martin@MooseMartin55 I have decided to forgo my final year of eligibility and enter the NFL draft. Thank you to everyone who has loved and supported me #NERDs

All three could be selected in the top 10. SBNation.com's latest 2012 NFL mock draft sends Luck No. 1 to the Indianapolis Colts, DeCastro No. 9 to the Miami Dolphins and Martin No. 13 to the Arizona Cardinals, where he'll need to learn to start saying the s.

Martin helped create a Stanford line that allowed only 11 sacks in 13 games, produced the nation's No. 19 rushing offense and allowed Luck to become the heir apparent to Peyton Manning.
