LSU will host one of their biggest “Pro Days” in recent memory tomorrow.
Names like Kendell Beckwith, Jamal Adams, Duke Riley, Leonard Fournette and others will showcase their talents to various NFL scouts and coaches in the indoor practice facility. What are some things to watch for?
1. Can Jamal Adams improve his stock even more?
LSU safety Jamal Adams has skyrocketed up the draft board this spring and is currently a projected top 5 pick according to Mel Kiper and many other draft analysts. Can he improve his stock even more? With a solid Pro Day, the sky is the limit for the talented safety from Lewisville, TX.
2. Duke Riley is the Tigers’ most underrated prospect – can he prove that?
LSU linebacker Duke Riley completed a stellar senior season with breakout games on the big stage against Ole Miss and Alabama. He has a phenomenal football IQ and was a key piece to Dave Aranda’s 3-4 scheme this year. Dating back to his freshman year, he has clearly been the most improved player of his class. Can he prove to scouts that he is as good as other former LSU linebackers in the pros?
3. Kendell Beckwith and his ACL recovery – how healthy is he?
Kendell Beckwith was LSU’s senior leader on defense, making a huge presence in the middle of the 3-4 front. Against Florida on November 19th, Beckwith went down with an ACL injury and he was later held out of the NFL Combine. With obvious talent, how healthy is he and can he showcase his talents to the 100+ NFL personalities?
