Four former LSU football players were named to the Professional Football Writers of America (PFWA) All-Rookie Team on Wednesday.

They were wide receiver Justin Jefferson (Vikings), center Lloyd Cushenberry (Broncos), offensive guard Damien Lewis (Seahawks), and linebacker Patrick Queen (Ravens). Per LSUSports.net:
quote:

Jefferson, who was the 22nd overall pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, set the league's rookie receiving record with 1,400 yards on 88 receptions. He scored seven touchdowns for the 7-9 Vikings. Jefferson had seven 100-yard receiving games with his career-best of 175 yards coming in his first start in week 3 against the Titans.

Cushenberry, a third round pick, started all 16 games at center for the Broncos and didn't miss an offensive play the entire season. Damien Lewis started all 16 regular season games for the Seahawks as well as Seattle's wild card game playoff loss to the Rams. Lewis started 15 games at right guard and then filled in for an injured and former Tiger Ethan Pocic at center for two games during the year.

Queen, one of four first round draft picks for the Tigers in 2020, recorded 66 tackles, had one interception and recovered two fumbles for the Ravens as a rookie. He started all 16 regular season games as well as Baltimore's second round playoff game against Buffalo. Queen returned a fumble 53 yards for a touchdown in a win over the Bengals in early October.

Burrow and Clyde would have made the list if not for injuries. This shows you that to beat Alabama you need a NFL roster. And we definitely had one in 2019. You ain't getting close if you don't.

I can’t be the only one that thinks “NFLSU” does more harm than good.

There were actually 5 first round draft picks from LSU not 4.

What happened to Queen late in the year? He seemed to get less playing time and a lot of folks in Baltimore were complaining about his play.

Heard he had a shite ton of missed tackles (one of the worst LBs in the league at it). He'll get that sorted out in due time.

I was wondering the same thing bc I wanted to see if LSU added to the list of reasons they were the greatest team ever. I pulled up the list and it didn’t have their college listed.
