LSU dominates a best of NFL under 25 years old team

LSU dominates a team chosen by USA Today of the best NFL players under 25 years old.

The SEC has 12 players on the 34-member team (22 players and 12 reserves), and the Tigers have six selections (three offense, three defense) including five starters and a reserve.

Here's a breakdown of the SEC selections:

LSU (6): Starters WR Odell Beckham Jr. (Giants), OG Trai Turner (Panthers), LB Kwon Alexander (Bucs), S Tyrann Mathieu (Cardinals), S Eric Reid (49ers) and reserve OT La'el Collins (Cowboys).

Alabama (2): Starter LB C.J. Mosley (Ravens), reserve S Ha Ha Clinton Dix (Packers)

Re: LSU dominates a best of NFL under 25 years old team

To be honest 25 is just a number it means nothing
How many national championship or superbowl rings they got betweem them?
By my quick count CJ Mosley has 2 more than them

Yeah I agree Lee. Too bad "the Hat" (Les Miles) wasn't able to close the deal with all of that talent in Baton Rouge. I still believe the guy is more lucky than good.

What do I know.

"The Hat" has made a habit of being lucky on the field. When you get lucky on a regular basis, luck probably has less to do with it.

Unfortunately, he is very unlucky in being the second best coach in the SEC. Like Saban or not, you have to admit that he is probably the best coach that college football has ever seen. If not for Saban Miles would probably have a few more rings.

(BTW-if it was all about luck, you would think Miles would luck out and get a QB that was worth a damn ever few years.)

Re: LSU dominates a best of NFL under 25 years old team

1953,

Listen - I like the hat. Looking back, he was a SOLID hire and he's had a great run. There are a ton of good Purple and Gold memories associated with him. Moreover, the quickest way to get to where every Tiger fan wants to geaux is for Les to adapt his football philosophy. But he refuses. It's just that his football philosophy is fundamental flawed and he refuses to change.

I remember Jeff Duncan was once quoted as saying LSU's old-fashioned offense works against the Western Kentuckys of the world... but not against SEC West rivals. I tend to agree.

The way I always looked at it, why would a QB that had thoughts about becoming an NFL QB ever want to go to LSU? Supposedly this year will be different but until we see it happen we always just run the ball. What good QB wants to go to a school that runs the ball 80% of the time?

Re: LSU dominates a best of NFL under 25 years old team

What amazes me is the talent LSU has had at WR, but you've got Miles going with the wishbone "athlete" at quarterback instead of the pocket passer, and yet WRs still sign with the Tigers?!?

Tigers win a National Title with MVP Matt Flynn and still are trying to run an offense with an "athlete"; that just shows that Miles is stubborn to the point of stupidity; the man can recruit, but he's stupid when it comes to the game; reminds me of former Tulane/Texas Head Coach Mack Brown...

With the talent in the fertile recruiting area of the Louisiana/Mississippi delta, LSU should average a national title in Baton Rouge every four years...
