Five LSU juniors reportedly leaning toward early draft entry



LSU underclassmen Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr., Ego Ferguson, Anthony Johnson and La'El Collins are all leaning toward declaring themselves eligible for the 2014 NFL Draft, according to a Yahoo Sports report.

Where wide receivers Landry and Beckham are concerned, that's nothing new. But it is the first indication that the NFL is more than just a serious consideration for defensive tackles Johnson and Ferguson, and Collins, a left tackle who might merit a first-round evaluation, according to NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks.

Underclassmen tracker
NFL.com's College Football 24/7 is tracking reports of the intentions of college football underclassmen in anticipation for the 2014 NFL Draft. More ...
Citing league sources, the report indicated Landry and Beckham would merit first-round picks. Both had more than 1,000 receiving yards in what was a resurgent season for the LSU offense and senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger, an NFL prospect himself.

BTW HERE IS THE REST OF THE STORY
All five have met with potential agents.

Conspicuously absent from the report is running back Jeremy Hill, a third-year sophomore who is also considering early NFL draft entry. Hill, on probation with legal troubles, has met most of his probation terms and is among the most talented running backs in the nation.

If LSU were to lose five underclassmen, that would mark 15 exiting the Tigers program early over the last two years, a mass exodus by any standard

I really hope we have guys make wiser decisions than the really, really poor ones made last year.

This is not surprising in the least. Not saying it's a good or wise decision, not surprising though

I think they need to tell these kids how many players they give first round evaluations to. Because i suspect it is way more than 32.

Haven't you been reading the Rant? Jeremy Hill is definitely going and since he is the best player in the history of the draft they will hold a special draft just for him.

Who is the source and where is the info coming from? I hope that they all return to play for LSU. Go Glenn Dorsey, great LSU senior.

None of those names are surprising at all. However, Ego and Freak really should come back because they both had rather disappointing years. IMHO, they've actually hurt their own draft stock this past season.

Looks like somebody trying to cast aspersions on LSU's program.

Is the author a gump?

I'm not putting down Freak but even if he could fool a team to draft him in decent round, I think he would get cut. He's an average sec DT at best at this point.

Freak had a disappointing year, Ego definitely did not.

I don't post here often so I don't know the lay of the land on this board, but I'll be glad when Ego and "The Freak" are gone. Neither played up to the legacy of their position. Ego will probably still have a solid pro career, and maybe the Freak too, but I was disappointed in them so bad.

And I fully expected Landry and Odell to leave all along.

What? They can't meet with agents at all or that's a violation.
