LSU's Five Year NFL Draft Track Record

LSU had a record number of underclassmen declare for the NFL Draft this year Ė 10 in all, and at least three of them are projected to be first-round picks in Sam Montgomery, Barkevious Mingo and Kevin Minter.

Over the last five years, LSU has had 30 players drafted, and none of them are better than Patrick Peterson.

2012 (5)

Morris Claiborne, Cowboys (1st round)
Michael Brockers, Rams (1st round)
Reuben Randle, Giants (2nd round)
Brandon Taylor, Chargers (3rd round)
Ron Brooks, Bills (4th round)

2011 (6)

Patrick Peterson, Cardinals (1st round)
Kelvin Sheppard, Bills (3rd round)
Stevan Ridley Patriots, RB (3rd round)
Drake Nevis, Colts (3rd round)
Joseph Barksdale, Raiders (3rd round)
Lazarius Levingston, Seahawks (7th round)

2010 (6)

Chad Jones, Giants (3rd round)
Brandon LaFell, Panthers (3rd round)
Perry Riley, Redskins (4th round)
Al Woods, Saints (4th round)
Trindon Holliday, Texans (6th round)
Charles Scott, Eagles (6th round)

2009 (6)

Tyson Jackson, Chiefs (1st round)
Quinn Johnson, Packers (5th round)
Herman Johnson, Cardinals (5th round)
Curtis Taylor, 49ers (7th round)
Demetrius Byrd, Chargers (7th round)
Ricky John-Francois, 49ers (7th round)

2008 (7)

Glenn Dorsey, Chiefs (1st round)
Chevis Jackson, Falcons (3rd round)
Jacob Hester, Chargers (3rd round)
Early Doucet, Cardinals (3rd round)
Craig Steltz, Bears (4th round)
Matt Flynn, Packers (7th round)
Keith Zinger, Falcons (7th round)

Best Pro: One of the most electrifying SEC players to ever suit up was former corner Patrick Peterson. Formally known as Patrick Johnson, unlike many other five-star players exiting high school, Peterson lived up to all the hype and more. Not only is he a sick cover corner, but heís also one the best punt returners in the league. Heís combined for 111 tackles and nine INTs in two seasons in the league, along with returning 95 punts for 1,125 yards and four touchdowns. Peterson could be the best overall player to come out of LSU, ever.

Most Disappointing Pro: As a former canít-miss defensive tackle out of college and former first-round pick, Glenn Dorsey certainly hasnít lived up to the hype. In five seasons, Dorsey has totaled 159 tackles with just four sacks. Dorsey only played in four games in Ď12, making just seven tackles, and was placed on injury reserve to finish the season. Dorsey certainly hasnít turned out to be a fraction of the player we all thought he would be exiting LSU.


NFL Draft rewind: LSU

Re: LSU's Five Year NFL Draft Track Record

No wonder they won all those championships with Les Miles.

All kidding aside, the fact that they don't know the obvious circumstances surrounding Dorsey's mediocre career is disappointing.

Hint: He's not a 3-4 DT or a 3-4 DE.

Not since we're moving to a 3-4.

I think he's purely a 4-3 DT.

If we stayed in a 4-3, he'd have been a perfect replacement for Ellis.

Re: LSU's Five Year NFL Draft Track Record

Dorsey never was the same again after that chop block. I think it's two fold, injuries and scheme.

Bronko Nagurski Trophy
Outland Trophy
Lott Trophy
Lombardi Award

Only player to have won all four awards. NFL nothing.
