Final draft scorecard

So the deadline for early entry into the NFL Draft has come and gone. It looks like most of the decisions made by LSU players were the right ones.

DL Ricky Jean-Francois - Gone. Let's face it, school was always going to be a problem for this guy. I don't know if he'll make it in the NFL but it's apparent he wasn't going to make it in school.

RB Charles Scott -- Staying. He was projected as a third-round pick and that's why he's coming back. Scott will likely improve his stock by staying. Running backs, though, are a dime a dozen in the NFL.

OL Ciron Black -- Staying. To me, linemen should just about always stay in school. You get a little bigger, stronger and better prepared for the NFL by staying -- unless you're the top prospect in the draft. Black wasn't. His return should help the LSU line in 2009.

WR Brandon LaFell -- Leaving. A year ago, most LSU fans would have been glad to see LaFell leave after all of the drops. This year, not so much. His departure -- if he doesn't pull his name out of consideration this weekend since he doesn't have an agent -- means signing Rueben Randle takes on an even greater significance.

It's time for Toliver and/or one of the Mitchells to shine, and hopefully the void at WR convnices Randle to sign. Who knows, maybe Shepard will play some WR like Pryor did for OSU in the bowl game. And DeAngelo Benton may finally be eligible to play.
