BATON ROUGE, La. - The NFL draft combine has begun, and LSU is well represented with 11 former Tigers on the list of invited players. Here's a look at the Tigers who are scheduled to be in attendance and when their position groups will take the field for workouts in Indianapolis.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- The damage wasn't as significant as a year ago, but early entries into the NFL draft will again hit LSU hard this season. The Tigers lost seven players who had eligibility remaining -- five of whom came from the offense, a year after seven of LSU's 11 early entries were defensive players.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- La'El Collins would have been an NFL draft pick this year. He might have even been an early-round pick this year. But unlike seven teammates, Collins announced on Tuesday that he will return for the 2014 season at LSU in order to complete his degree and improve his pro stock.
Greg Studrawa, who served as LSU's offensive coordinator in 2011-12 and was the team's longest-tenured assistant coach, is out as the Tigers' offensive line coach. Studrawa has been a member of Les Miles' coaching staff since 2007, when he first became LSU's offensive line coach.
