High school prospects come to elite football programs such as LSU to get to the NFL. This week, former Tigers will see if their dreams come true.
The first round of the NFL draft will begin on Thursday. When the seventh round is completed on Saturday, prospects around the country will hope their name has been called out in New York's Radio City Music Hall.
LSU annually fields elite prospects. Eleven Tigers participated in this year's NFL combine, increasing the number to 40 over four years. No school in the SEC has had more in that time period, according to LSU director of player personnel Austin Thomas.
Of those 11 players, nine are projected to be drafted, according to Bleacher Report NFL draft lead analyst Matt Miller's latest mock draft. Predicting where each player will go is a tough task, so expect results to vary.
Here is where Miller has each LSU player slated to go.
