LSU Losing Receivers Jarvis Landry & Odell Beckham To NFL Draft
Jarvis Landry #80 and Odell Beckham Jr. #3
The LSU Tigers will be looking to replace their two leading receivers for the 2014 college football season, as both Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr. have declared for the 2014 NFL Draft.
Landry, a 6-foot-1, 195-pound junior from Convent, Louisiana, was LSU's leading receiver this past season, catching 77 passes for 1,193 yards and ten touchdowns, one year after catching 56 passes for 573 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore.
Beckham, a 6-foot, 187-pound junior out of New Orleans, had a solid season in 2013, catching 59 passes for 1,152 yards and eight touchdowns, after catching a combined 84 passes for 1,188 yards and four touchdowns in his first two seasons.
The losses of Landry and Beckham means that Travin Dural, who caught seven passes for 145 yards and two touchdowns, will be the leading wideout for the Tigers.
So far, four LSU players have entered the draft early, with Landry and Beckham joining defensive tackles Anthony Johnson and Ego Ferguson.
