The LSU Tigers didn’t have many participants in the Senior Bowl last weekend in Mobile Alabama, but that doesn’t mean that Brian Kelly’s team won’t dominate draft day when late April rolls around. 

Jordan Jefferson and Charles Turner III were the Tigers' two representatives at the Senior Bowl. The weeklong event was the first piece of the ongoing job interview that will lead NFL hopefuls to Indianapolis for the NFL combine in March and ultimately to Detroit for the 2024 NFL Draft. 

The other former LSU players who have declared for the draft decided to wait to showcase their abilities in Indy because three of the five are locks to go in the first round. So, off the heels of the Senior Bowl, we’ll check in with Jefferson and Turner’s draft stock and try to find a home for Jayden Daniels, Malik Nabers, Brian Thomas Jr. Mekhi Wingo, and Maason Smith.

Right now, there are rumors that the Washington Commanders with their new owner, and entirely new regime, are looking to trade up to the No. 1 pick for Caleb Williams. They even hired Kliff Kingsbury, who was an assistant at USC last season. 

However, if Chicago is unwilling to move off the No. 1 pick, then Washington might be more likely to go with Jayden Daniels over Drake Maye. Maye has been No. 2 to Williams since the 2022 season, but after Daniels's Heisman campaign, he could leapfrog the UNC quarterback. 

Kingsbury, Washington’s new offensive coordinator ran a successful offense for Kyler Murray, so the dual-threat ability of Daniels will be enticing.
