Now back to the topic... LSU produces the most NFL talent in the SEC. Good for us and it looks like with addition of Cam Cameron and LSU ambassadors in the NFL, the trend looks to continue for the foreseeable future. Hopefully we can start out recruiting them and start winning some more championships. I excited to see how the new playoff system works.
We just did with Fournette. Yet another NFL grade talent which will go to the NFL.

If memory serves me right, are there not more former LSU RBs than former Bama RBs in the NFL?

We'll I know in the 2013 pro-bowl it's Alabama 1, LSU 0

That goes for all underclassmen. I think the numbers were something like 96 underclassmen declaring for the draft and 38 not getting drafted.They would have been better off staying in school and finishing their coursework, getting their degrees.
