Top Fits For Louisiana State University Draft Prospects

Devin White – Devin White is maybe the most skilled football player I have seen come out of LSU in my entire life. He has everything you could want out of player. I think the best spot for him would be going at #4 to the Oakland Raiders. Although it would never happen, if I were a Cards fan I wouldn’t even be mad taking him #1 overall and having him as a lockdown main defensive piece for a LONG time to come. Any team that gets him will be very happy with the results.

Greedy Williams – Other than most people noticing his striking resemblance to Chris Rock, the combine showed that Greedy is here to play. Some questioned his speed but his more than impressive 4.37 40 yard dash proved those doubters wrong. He has great coverage skills but could use some improvement in his run coverage game. An ideal spot for him would be with the Denver Broncos at #10. If they don’t take him there, still don’t expect him to fall past the top 20.

Foster Moreau – Mostly thought to be a blocking TE, he showed off at the combine to possibly be a threat in more roles. It could also be that LSU has never been one to show off receiving TE threats. A great fit for him would be to the New Orleans Saints somewhere in the middle rounds of the draft. They have found success with a very similar player in Josh Hill and are in the need of another TE on their roster.

Edwin Alexander – Missing some time in 2018, combined with being overshadowed by everyone else on a high-powered LSU defense, someone will be getting a steal in this very powerful run-stuffing NT in the late rounds. A good fit would be the Steelers nabbing him in the 6th round.

Cole Tracy – Cole Tracy. What a guy. Here for a year and already one of the biggest fan favorites in recent memory. He wrote his name down in Louisiana history and would be a great get for any team with some late round picks to get a great kicker. My guess would be the Cleveland Browns to finally solve their woes.

Nick Brossette – Brossette showed flashes of excellence during his time at LSU, a school that has a great history of producing quality backs. Though, this year in a deep draft class I see him as a likely UDFA or a team with a few late round picks having the option to take him. My most likely landing spot for him is with the Buffalo Bills.

John Battle IV – Battle has the size, mentality, and intelligence to make an NFL roster, but has gone on record saying that he’s not too worried about being drafted. There’s a good chance he goes as a UDFA and proves his ability there. Most likely it will be with a team that needs another safety to play with depth or special teams. My best guess would be a team like the hometown Saints or Green Bay Packers to give him a chance post-draft.
