3. Alabama OL Evan Neal
4. Notre Dame S Kyle Hamilton

He’s definitely top 5. He’ll geaux to the combine and test off the charts. That’s what gets these guys drafted in the first round now. He has enough tape to support his athleticism.

If no tacking donte jackson can be a high draft pick, DS will be a NFL superstar. Best of luck to him, just wish we could have seen him more on the field playing at LSU.

You do realize DJ was one of our best tackling dbs in recent history right? 45 tackles his last year. But don't let facts get in the way of your opinion.

If you look at the teams who are projected to have picks in the top 5, it is highly likely that Stingley goes in the top 5. Most of them have needs at CB.

There aren’t very many NFL teams that wouldnt jump at the chance to get a bonafide shutdown CB on a Rookie Contract

I dont see DS going that high. He is injury prone and/or not a team player. Either way, hes not a top 5 caliber pick in my opinion.

This will be unpopular here, and I wish the young man nothing but success, but I couldn’t disagree more. Congrats to his PR Dept!

Lazy analysis by a guy who can’t even stay sober enough to be on air a few hours a week these days.

I hate it that DS will go that high based on essentially one season. In the age of opt outs, it just gives kids an excuse to end their careers early and wait for the draft. Bad for college football.

Maybe that means not compensating college athletes properly is bad for college football. If you’re set to make millions in the nfl, why risk injury in college? So that your coach and school can make millions?

LSU has a long history of DBs busting in the NFL, right?
