Jeter and Smith may be able to work on the OL

These guys all have a shot. I wouldn't be surprised if 5-6 of them end up on a roster

Neal will make the Dallas roster. Dural is a vertical threat and NO is probably looking for someone in case Ginn goes down. I think one of the TE may have a shot. The rest are in uphill fight.

I wish him the best, but I don't recall Dural being very fast and really fell off after his injury. Hard to tell tho with the offense we ran.

So we have the potential to still have the most players on NFL rosters even though other schools hit double digit drafts? Nice.

If, hypothetically, every single one of our UDFA's end up making rosters and getting paid, who gives a frick if they got drafted or not? And how is that a negative reflection on LSU? You're acting like people are going to care about some imaginary draft pick number in 10 years when there are some first rounders from this class working at Popeyes and UDFA's making millions

Dural I believe is a better overall receiver than Dupre. More physical, hope he hits it big with the Saints. I like Boutte in Cleveland, wish all these Tigers well.

I have a feeling Boutte, Jeter and Neal could stick somewhere. Dural too if he can return to his old form.

Can't believe the Saints actually signed Dural. Much like Dupre in Green Bay, he will have an elite qb throwing him the ball. Also, with Cooks gone, we need another deep threat. Dural isn't super speedy, but he has a knack for getting open downfield. I hope he makes it. Good luck to all of the Tigers!

I don't know if he ever got back to full health or not, but if he can, this could be a great UDFA signing.

Dural was regarded as a burner but lost a step after the hamstring injury.

Neal has a chance in Dallas with their DE needs

Was thinking the exact same. Drake Nevis even got a chance in Dallas several years ago, didn't make much of his chance, but we need all the help we can get on the DL.

i think 2 or 3 of these guys have a real shot to make a roster

Is it still the Oakland Raiders? When do they become the Las Vegas raiders?

I haven't followed it closely but I got this from Wikipedia [quote]The team is scheduled to begin play as the Las Vegas Raiders for the 2020 National Football League (NFL) season (although a move to Las Vegas could happen as soon as 2019 with Sam Boyd Stadium), playing home games at the Las Vegas Stadium.[/qoute] LINK

Smith is going to be a good pro.

I agree. I'll say that he has the best chance out of this group of UFA.
