Feelin' the draft

The Sporting News' War Room Scouts rolled out a first-round mock draft in this week's issue.

To no one's surprise, LSU is well represented in the first round. The War Room has three Tigers - quarterback JaMarcus Russell, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe and safety LaRon Landry - has first-round picks.

The War Room has Russell going No. 1 overall to the Oakland Raiders. Bowe going to the Tennessee Titans at No. 19 and Landry going to the Dallas Cowboys at 22.

The only SEC team with as many projected first rounders is Florida with three.

People can talk about coaching all they want, but if you don't have players it's hard to win. There were years in the bad ol' day s of Curley Hallman when LSU wouldn't have a first-round pick. To have three potential first-rounders usually translates into wins and losses.
