LSU Sends More Players to the NFL Through the Draft
The record for LSU players being selected in an NFL Draft is 9, which was set in 2013, and repeated in 2014. But this year, with 6 LSU Tigers off the board through 3 rounds, and 5 more prospects available for the final four rounds, it's likely the record will be tied, if not broken.
The first round saw Leornard Fournette (Jacksonville), Jamal Adams (New York Jets), and Tre'Davious White (Buffalo) all get selected in the top 32 picks. Then in the second round, Seattle selected former Tigers' center Ethan Pocic as the only Tiger in that round.
The third round had LSU linebacker Duke Riley go to the Atlanta Falcons, and former LSU linebacker Kendell Beckwith go to Tampa Bay.
A pair of LSU wide receivers have the highest draft grades of the remaining Tigers, Malachi Dupre and Travin Dural could be taken early in the 4th round. The rest of the Tigers prospects are all defensive lineman, Tashawn Bower, Davon Godchaux, and Lewis Neal will all hope to be selected before the end of the day.
