Heading into Thursday’s highly anticipated 7PM NFL Draft on WGNO-TV ABC, all eyes will be on what could be a record setting draft class for the LSU Tigers. From his April 8th update, ESPN Mock Draft Analyst Todd McShay has LSU standouts Joe Burrow ranked at 1, Patrick Queen at 21, Justin Jefferson at 22 and Kristian Fulton at 38 just to name a few.
Often overshadowed by their dominance on the football field are their experiences behind the scenes that make these NFL hopefuls stand out just a little more. Please check out below some of the stories of family and friendship that you might not know of, from some of McShay’s Top 15 along with the three aforementioned LSU players. NFL Draft night kicks off with the WGNO Sportszone Pre Draft Special at 6:30PM hosted by resident pro Ed Daniels followed by the NFL Draft On ABC at 7PM. The evening wraps up with the Sportszone Post Draft Special immediately afterwards. Geaux Tigers!
