On the NFL Draft

I know a lot of LSU fans don't ever want to read about Nick Saban again. And that is certainly understandable.

But there is one statistic that I found that is downright impressive.

Tyson Jackson became the ninth player recruited and signed by Nick Saban while at LSU to be drafted in the first round.

That's even more impressive when you consider that Saban was at LSU for only five seasons (2000-04).

Now, that's not longing for Saban. That's not taking anything away from Les Miles. It's just stating a fact and an impressive one at that.

In fact, LSU's streak of six consecutive years with a first-round draft pick is tops in the nation.

Did the NFL ignore the final mock drafts, many projecting Tyson as the 3rd overall pick, and not invite him to the draft at the last minute?
