ESPN is reporting (Jan. 5) that several upperclassmen on the LSU football team could be headed to the NFL. While this isn't a surprise to most, it is the first trinkle of news making headlines that Jarvis Landry Odell Beckham, are seriously considering leaving LSU early for the NFL draft.

According to ESPN Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry, both juniors on the LSU football team will forgo their senior year and opt for the 2014 NFL draft.

Beckham won the Paul Hornung Award this year, with a stellar year in averaging 178.1 yards per game. Beckham's parents were both athletes for the Tigers with his mom sprinting for a National Championship, while his dad was a running back on the LSU football team.

According to local news, Jarvis Landry hasn't officially made up his mind yet. In fact, Landry may be planning on staying at LSU for his senior year.

Jeremy Hill, a sophomore, has also been reported as possibly leaving early since Leonard Fournette from St. Augustine, Fl. has committed to LSU at the running back position.

Other Tigers that have already said they are entering the draft are Anthony Johnson, otherwise known as "the freak" and Ego Ferguson.

A press conference is expected to be held this week with an announcement from those players entering the draft.
