Last week LSU announced that its Pro Day would be held on March 31 at the Indoor Practice Facility. We knew then when, now we know who will be showing out for professional scouts.

Eight former Tigers received invitations to the Combine: fullback Tory Carter, wide receiver Ja’Marr Chase, linebacker Jabril Cox, wide receiver Terrace Marshall Jr., wide receiver Racey McMath, defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin, safety Jacoby Stevens and cornerback Kary Vincent Jr.

As a reminder there’s no actual combine in Indianapolis this year due to the pandemic, instead Pro Days across schools’ campuses will serve that purpose.

“It’s a tremendous honor to be invited to the NFL Combine and I’m proud of each of these guys for putting themselves in position to take the next step of their football career,” Ed Orgeron said. “It’s disappointing that this group won’t be able to have the full NFL Combine experience, but I know they are training hard and will put on a great performance at our Pro Day later this month.”

Of the Tigers entering the draft, Ja’Marr Chase surely hears his name called first. By all accounts Chase is a lock to be a top-10 pick at worst and is neck and neck with Devonta Smith to be the first wide receiver taken. Marshall and Cox should also hear their names called early, perhaps in the first round though more likely in the second round.

LSU’s Pro Day will be covered by ESPN, the SEC Network and of course the NFL Network.
