In one of the biggest events of the year in the NFL, the 2017 draft, the LSU Tigers have to offer 17 amazing athletes to 32 NFL teams.
And Thursday night, the three biggest prospects found their place in the pros. This will help to LSU preserve and further their official title of having more active players in the NFL than any other college.
The first Tiger to be selected was running back Leonard Fournette, who found a home with the Jacksonville Jaguars. According to the Jags, they drafted him ‘to put the ball in the end zone’. I think all LSU fans are confident he can fulfill this request, just like the 40 times he did on his career in Baton Rouge.
If you’re already looking at the possibility of putting Fournette to the test in Fantasy Football this year, here’s the inside scoop.
If you keep up with my Twitter or read my articles at all, you know I really wanted safety Jamal Adams to find a place in Dick LeBeau’s Tennessee Titans defense. Instead, Adams is now a member of the New York Jets, following in his father George Adams’ footsteps by being drafted in the first round.

Finally, the biggest wild card in regards to destination — cornerback Tre’Davious White was selected by the Buffalo Bills. I don’t think too many people really saw this coming. Neither did White, it seems. But then he’s used to some uncertainty.

His signing bonus: $5,509,279.#LSU
Three LSU Tigers down, fourteen more to go. Names like Davon Godchaux, Lewis Neal and Ethan Pocic among others still remain up for grabs.
