Every wide receiver in college football is declaring for the NFL draft.
At least it seems like it, as LSU juniors Odell Beckham and Jarvis Landry are set to become the latest wide outs to renounce their final season of eligibility and head to the NFL, according to a report from Yahoo Sports on Sunday.
Beckham had a breakout season, catching 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns, while Landry caught 77 balls for 1,193 yards and 10 scores.
They probably should’ve looked at the draft field before they declared. Besides the normal group of senior receivers heading to the NFL, there is a huge pool of early entries that includes Sammie Watkins of Clemson, Marquise Lee of USC, Mike Evans of Texas A&M, Devante Adams of Fresno State, Brandin Cooks of Oregon State, Allen Robinson of Penn State and Paul Richardson of Colorado.
Still, both Beckham and Landry are projected by most NFL draftniks to be selected on the draft’s first day. That makes four LSU players who have entered the draft early, with defensive tackles Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson being the others.
