LSU has a list of guys set to leave this season and join the NFL ranks. This could easily be the best draft class that has ever come out of LSU. There is a group of talented seniors who are set to leave and another group of underclassmen set to take the next step. All underclassmen have not declared yet but here is a short list of the seniors and underclassmen.


Underclassmen Declared:

RB Spencer Ware

Punter Brad Wing

DB Tharold Simon

LB Kevin Minter

S Eric Reid


Expected to Declare:

DE Barkevious Mingo

DE Sam Montgomery

DT Bennie Logan


Seniors Leaving:

WR Russell Sheppard

PK Drew Alleman

Center PJ Lonergan

OG Josh Dworaczyk

OT Alex Hurst

DT Josh Downs

DE Lavar Edwards


The most LSU players drafted in one NFL draft is 8 but this was also back when the NFL draft was longer than 7 rounds. LSU has had several classes in the last 10 years have 7 players drafted. With the list given above I cannot imagine a scenario that at least 8 of these guys get drafted and more sign undrafted free agent contracts with others teams.

Some mock draft projections baring some of these guys declare which I fully expect them to, have as many as 4 LSU players being taken in the first round. Those players would be Barkevious Mingo, Sam Montgomery, Eric Reid, and Kevin Minter.
