It's safe to say that Kendell Beckwith's rehab from a torn ACL in November is a head of schedule...

The former LSU linebacker suffered the injury back on November 19 vs. the Florida Gators but is already back on the field making huge plany for his Tampa Bay Buccaneers team.


The Buccaneers selected Beckwith in the 3rd round of the 2017 NFL draft with pick number 107.

Crazy that the Saints let all these great defensive guys get away when they have the best opportunity of anybody in the league to nab them. Debo, Kwon, Hunter, next up Beckwith and Riley. I'm not listing first round guys like Adams and White because it's a lot more costly to go up a few spots to get those players, but these 2nd, 3rd, and 4th round guys who are going to be stars, and you just let em get away.

Any GM that didn't know he was going to be a monster in the NFL is an absolute moron.

So happy for this tiger. Always kept out of trouble and was a monster on the field. It made me sick when he tore his ACL but happy he pushed through it. Wish him the best of luck. Geaux tigers.

I know Kendall was injured and we have the benefit of watching and knowing what kind of character he has. But shouldn't NFL scouts do the same. If I had one guy to pick to come back from an injury, it would be Beckwith. He's got the mindset and determination it takes to succeed. Much like Honey Badger. He will be a Pro Bowler from day 1! Anzalone will be good also. But I think Beckwith has a higher ceiling!

"a head of schedule" / "huge plany"... Someone needs some proofreading skills

It's the TD way. I don't know why they don't take it more serious considering they're one of the top LSU/local community websites and also around the SEC. Seems like more growth is possible but content has set in. It's why Larry Leo still puts up stories. Lol

Saints love letting the hometown kids get away to their rivals.

Saw one of his TFL plays early in the game. Read, react, and dropped the RB. GREAT play. Gruden said TB has one of the best, if not best, LB corps in the NFL.

Another great player at a position of need from right down the street that the Saints passed on. How many times will NFC rivals nab LSU players before the Saints wake up and follow suit!?

Saints need to take advantage of what LSU has to offer, and I would start like now. The players that will be coming out of there in the coming years will transform the saints defense. No doubt in my mind. Guys like Alexander, Phillips, Taylor, Key, Chassion, Anthony, Delpit, Greedy, White, Thorton, Logan, Lawrence, Alexander, Tolliver, Jackson and others will likely emerge. I would be keeping a close eye on all these guys if I were the Saints. Then you have Chark, Moreau, Dillion, Guice, Williams, Clyde, Stevens, Sullivan, Drake, Gage, and Myles who I would keep an eye out for on offense, then I'm sure others will emerge as well. I know many still have lots to prove but IMO they will all be very good players for the Tigers and possibly the next level. The 2018 WR class in Louisiana are nuts not to be considering the Tigers. Guys like Chase and Jason need to be Tigers. Florida, and Kansas? Really? Come on guys y'all can do better than that. I guess LSU needs to put a good ole fashion stomping on the Gators this year to show them who on the up and who's not. The Gators are falling apart over there and goes to show you what type of leadership they have. One or two maybe even three players getting in trouble is pretty common but (7) at one time really isn't. Come on Chase you can do better than that. I know you want to get out of Louisiana but that's what vacations are for, and then you will likely be in a totally different state for your entire NFL career if you make it. You come to LSU and your chances just went way up. GT

Boo! Quit with that "Saints don't take LSU players" crap

Don't they kind of have to wait their turn like anyone else making draft picks? This whole "why don't the saints draft him" sometimes doesn't make a lot of sense to me unless I'm missing something.

The injury was the only reason he didn't go higher, but I don't blame owners for shying away from him. You never know whether or not a guy is going to bounce back from that.

You are not being objective. We had a need at LB, this much is obvious. But you are saying the Saints did not adequately address the need. Just to remind you we picked Anzalone, who also has injury history. You are not being objective here, while complaining about the Saints having a bias against LSU players.

I never said anything about the Saints and LSU players. I'm just talking about my own observations of owners in general. The Saints got Kamara in the 3rd round, and I couldn't be happier. Attrition won't slow the running game this year, as it has in years past. Personally, if I was a pro athlete, I wouldn't want to live my whole life and spend my whole career in one state. There's more to the world than LA and our 4.5 million citizens. I hope Beckwith does very well.

He was dominant at LSU. If he finished the year healthy, he would have been a 1st or 2nd round pick.

Every LSU fan pretty much expected KB to do this. He was a steal in the third round. This is one Tiger that the Saints could have easily gotten.
Reply50 months
Christ I really wonder what was taught here, seeems player after player goes to the NFL and shines. They go from good players to dominant. It shoulda been the opposite

Really?? So you think Aranda isn't a great teacher of the LB position? Yeah great analysis. Some guys turn it up a notch when that check comes my man. It's the NFL too, the teaching and teammates are professionals. The guy on the side of him does his job well so he simply needs to do his, which allows him to shine. BTW he was a damn good linebacker at LSU as well. People and their bashing of LSU is the single most disgusting thing our fans can ever do. People like you don't deserve to be Tiger fans.
