Odell Beckham And Jarvis Landry Leaving LSU For NFL Draft
Sources are confirming that two of the LSU Football programs stand out players have decided that they will not return for their senior season and instead enter the NFL draft.
Junior wide receivers Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry will give up their collegiate eligibility to enter the NFL draft.
LSU so far have lost four players who will leave the team to enter the NFL Draft. Along with Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry, the Tigers will also lose defensive linemen Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson, both of whom had already announced they would turn pro.
Will Jeremy Hill leave LSU too?
Hill, a draft-eligible sophomore, will have a decision of his own to announce in the near future. After rushing for 216 yards in the Tigers' Outback Bowl win against Iowa, the All-SEC tailback completed the season with 1,401 rushing yards -- the second-best single-season total in LSU history -- and 16 touchdowns.
Kiper listed Hill as the No. 5 non-senior tailback prospect.
We will just have to see. Good news for LSU though is that they received a commitment from the top ranked high school football player in the country over the weekend.
The top-rated player in the country, Leonard Fournette (New Orleans/Saint Augustine), ended months of speculation by committing to LSU in the fourth quarter of Thursday's Under Armour All-America game.
