 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  The program that put together the greatest season in college football history may be on the doorstep of making NFL draft history. The numbers LSU is shooting for: six and 14. Six is the record for No. 1 draft picks, set in 2004 by the Miami Hurricanes with the likes of Kellen Winslow, former Saints linebacker Jonathan Vilma and Vince Woolfork. Fourteen is the record for most picks in a modern seven-round draft, also set that year by Ohio State, a number that included the late Will Smith with the 18th pick to New Orleans. LSU's records for the NFL draft are four No. 1 picks and nine picks overall. Four Tigers went in the first round in 2007: quarterback JaMarcus Russell with the No. 1 overall pick to Oakland, safety LaRon Landry at No. 6 to Washington, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe at No. 23 to Kansas City and receiver Craig Davis at No. 30 to San Diego (only one other LSU player was drafted that year).

Nine Tigers were selected in 2013 and 2014, players like Eric Reid, Kevin Minter, Tyrann Mathieu, Odell Beckham Jr., Jarvis Landry and Trai Turner. This year's class could eclipse them all, led by Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow, who stands to join Billy Cannon and Russell as overall No. 1 picks. LSU could have as many as five other players taken in the first round - though that doesn't quite seem likely - and up to 16 players drafted. Again, that may be pushing it, but it is possible. Three Tigers other than Burrow look like first-round locks: edge rusher K'Lavon Chaisson, wide receiver Justin Jefferson and linebacker Patrick Queen. - Baton Rouge Advocate
