He wasn't underrated and it's been a few years but one guy I wonder about sometimes is Akiem Hicks. His recruitment blew up and he ended up in Canada, but from the way he looks in the NFL he would have been a big time player at LSU. Always need another great D-Lineman you know. ...

The only way for this to happen is to negotiate a sign and trade type arrangement with the Browns.

Basically the Saints would have to negotiate a deal ...

Coaching only gets you so far, imo. Same with nature, honestly. If you look at NFL players they all have the genetic potential to develop the kind of bodies the NFL requires. Of all the guys with this DNA, of the ones who actually play in HS, excel, work out, and get enough exposure to get into foot...

The best athletes can go three and out. If you want LSU to have the best athletes, then expect more three and outs. It should be a point of pride that we get more guys to the NFL quicker than other teams, and as a result there are more opportunities for talented young players to get on the field an...

I see a lot of the "Drew Brees lacks arm strength" meme here and I honestly think everyone repeating that is, well, repeating it. If you watch Brees throwing in games he doesn't have elite NFL arm strength but he has a strong arm and can make long passes and get the ball into tight coverage. Anthon...

He really does. He is never going to play QB in the NFL. He showed great poise in the drive to beat Arkansas, but you could see the ball floating a bit, he just doesn't have the arm to really drive it in there. I like him, I'm glad he made the play...
