2014 NFL Draft: LSU receivers Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham Jr declare for draft


LSU junior wide receivers Odell Beckham Jr.and Jarvis Landry are forgoing their senior years and are entering the 2014 NFL draft, according to Rand Getlin of Yahoo Sports and later confirmed by Bleacher Report’s NFL lead analyst Matt Miller.

The duo were the first in LSU history to post 1,000 yard seasons in the same year, becoming only the third pair of SEC wide receivers to accomplish the rare feat in the league’s storied history.

Landry finished the season with a team-high 77 receptions for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Beckham finished with 59 receptions for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns while also establishing a new single-season record for all-purpose yards in program history while winning the Paul Hornung Award given to the nation’s most versatile player.

Each receiver has a chance to be drafted in the first round depending on their workouts at February’s NFL combine and at LSU’s pro day in the spring.

I’d imagine there is a little friendly competition or wager in the works to see who is drafted first.
