The nation's best cornerback hails from Death Valley in the form of Morris Claiborne. However high he gets drafted, he will still be a steal for the team that calls his name.

Tiger fans, it's a great year to wear the purple and gold. It stinks to watch great players leave the collegiate field, but there's something about putting players in the NFL that makes us football fans smile.
LSU's defense was clearly bound for the NFL, and 2011 made sure that no LSU great would miss that opportunity.
