The LSU Football Team is known for it's defense. Now, the Tigers will have to rebuild that side of the ball.
Multiple sources are reporting, junior defensive ends Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo will enter the NFL Draft. Montgomery and Mingo join defensive tackle Bennie Logan, safety Eric Reid and defensive back Tharold Simon in leaving school early for the pros.
ESPN rates Mingo as the sixth best prospect in the draft, ahead of Montgomery at #17 and Logan at #47.
Linebacker Kevin Minter and running back Spencer Ware have also entered the draft. LSU went 10-3 this season, losing to Clemson in the Chick-fil-A Bowl on New Year's Eve.
