Being an UDFA gives the player the option to pick and choose which team he wants to go to as long as they're willing to bring him in so that's a bonus.  But I think with most players, they grow up dreaming about hearing their names called during the NFL draft so I could imagine most players, although happy to get a chance one way or another would rather hear their name called no matter what round.

I don't know they're pretty loaded.

Fournette of course.

Former tOSU targers: Jamal Adams should be one of, if not the top S drafted. (1st rd) T Ethan Pocic will be a top 3-4 T drafted which will put him in the 1st. 

CB Tre'Davious White continues the tradition of good LSU CBs.  Was projected to be a 2nd rounder in this years draft if he didn't decide to return --> now is projected by many to be a 1st rounder in the '17 draft.

DE/OLB - Lewis Neal is a beast and will be 1st rounder.  See White above, he decided to come back and was projected to be to be on of the top 5-6 DEs taken, which would've put him in the 2nd round range so with another dominant year next season he'll be a lock for 1st round.

WR Malachi Dupre, was rated as one of the best WRs coming out of HS and has a decently productive couple of years at LSU given their QB situation.  Right now he's projected by Walter Camp to be a 1st rounder and go to my Cowboys... I won't say no to an LSU WR in the pros.  I feel like he needs to get stronger but he has all the talent to be a 1st rounder.

And the last player Walter Camp had going 1st round was DT Davon Godchaux.  I don't really know much about him. But 6'4 close to 300 pounds... had a pretty good Soph. season with 6 sacks and 9 TFL.  If he builds on that, I can see him being one of the top DTs taken with that production and his size.  LSU always has good DL players so NFL teams won't hesitate going after them early.

So who knows, I can certainly see it.. but it's still a long ways from next years draft, who knows what the draft order will be and what teams needs will be.  But, LSU is going to be loaded regardless.

Charlie over at Walter Camp has 7 LSU Tigers in his 1st round mock too, just different orders.  I don't like his because he has the Cowboys selecting QB Brad Kaaya... no thanks.  For you browns fans, both mocks had them with the 1st pick -- The original mock has them taking QB Watson #1.  Charlie see's them taking DE Myles Garrett

Speaking of a team full of young talent (this past year) LSU.  Walter Camps way too early '17 Mock Draft has 7 Tigers going in the 1st round which would of course be a record.  If they get good production from Harris at the QB position they'll be scary good next year.

Trying to find a UDFA tracker out there that's not just focused on a certain team.  Anyone have a link for all signings?

Melvin Gordon like, "Shit, now I gotta go against him every day?!"

They were the two players that I think everyone felt like should've came back.  Tyvis especially.  I had a feeling he wouldn't get drafted and was confused when I saw some mock drafts having him go 4th roundish.  Jalin, I thought (before the combine) would be no later than a 5th rounder but after seeing his 40 time.. I didn't realize he was that slow.  I think if he would've been a 4.4 guy he would have definitely been picked up.  Felt like he could've been a poor man's Wes Welker type in NE's offense, not as good hands but more versatile catching and running out of the back field even in the return game.   All in all, I thought they both should've came back but at least now they can do their research on depth charts and what not and pick the best option for them.

I'm hoping my Cowboys bring in North as a FA.  Got good size and speed to him.  6'2 223 with 4.4 speed.

Comment 30 Apr 2016

To be fair, their team is really young.. full of young talent and will be all over the draft boards over the next few years. 

They only had 2 players that were even considered to get drafted this year :

WR Marquez North and OLB Curt Maggit and both were projected 6th to undrafted.

Comment 30 Apr 2016

Well I'm not surprised about Jalin and Powell.  They were the only two I was questioning why they left early -- although I though Jalin would get drafted in the 5-6th round range.  Tyvis I was thinking late 7 to undrafted.  Hopefully someone will snag them here in the last few picks.  At least they'll get their pick of teams to sign as a FA.

Comment 30 Apr 2016

Has Jeremy Cash even been drafted yet?!  Wouldn't mind my Boys snagging him up here in the 6th with one of our 4 picks.  Perhaps former Buckeye David Perkins, too.

That kid is an idiot, he always talks about Meyers players having trouble off the field and wonder how they'd do under Kirk and his "team 1st concept & discipline."  Umm, pretty sure Iowa has lead the B1G in arrests over the last 5+ years.
