After three years as a starter on LSU's offensive line, Will Clapp has announced that he will forgo his senior season and enter the 2018 NFL Draft.

The New Orleans native went public with his decision Thursday afternoon via Twitter:


Clapp joins underclassmen Arden Key, Kevin Toliver, Toby Weathersby, Donte Jackson, and Derrius Guice who have announced they're leaving early for the NFL draft.

Solid as a Rock player. Got his degree and I expect a good draft position coming. I liked his dad as a player too, back in the 80's. Seems like a good TIGER family. Best of luck to you Will, with so many former Tigers in the league you're bound to be blocking for one of them!

Good for him but very surprised.

Kid started 3 years which is what a team gets from most quality players so "leaving early" isn't quite true. He's graduated so what's wrong with him leaving for his chosen profession? Isn't college to prepare you for your future? Leave these kids alone. Let him and them start healthy in the NFL.

it's a sinking ship (i hope i'm wrong though), can't blame him for leaving early

Best of luck to him but damn, this hurts. When you're breaking in new RB's and a new QB, an experienced OL goes a long way.

No. We knew Key, Guice, Tolliver, and Jackson were gone regardless of who the coach was. Weathersby has injury issues and needs to go pro now. Clapp has started for 3 years and has a lot of good film for the NFL to look at.

LSU has absolutely hemoraged players over the last 7 to 8 years. It had caused depth problems that are difficult to overcome with the scholarship limits.

Best of luck, Will. The right decision, financially for this young man. LSU o-linemen have done very well in the pros, and I expect nothing different from Will! Thanks for being a Tiger!
