LSU junior RB Michael Ford has declared for April's NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.
We are starting to think something is up with LSU that the rest of us don't know about. Ford's departure brings LSU's total to nearly ten of juniors that have declared for April's Draft. "I have speed, I can catch, I can block and I can run through tackles," Ford said. "All the guys going pro? Our dream is to make it to the NFL." He received a fourth- to sixth-round projection from the NFL. Mon, Jan 7, 2013 04:08:00 PM

LSU junior RB Michael Ford has been ruled eligible for the Tigers' opener.

There were concerns earlier in the week that Ford may have academic issues. On the other side, junior linebacker Tahj Jones' eligibility was not granted. Ford was the team’s leading rusher last season with 755 yards and seven touchdowns, but LSU definitely uses a committee approach at the position.

LSU junior RB Michael Ford's eligibility is in question heading into the Tigers' season opener.

Reportedly it is an academic issue. "There is some appeal process that’s being undertaken for those guys, and we’ll kind of have to wait to see how that all turns out as we get closer to the game," head coach Les Miles said. Junior LB Tahj Jones' eligibility is also under question. Ford was the team’s leading rusher last season with 755 yards and seven touchdowns, but LSU definitely uses a committee approach at the position. Juniors Alfred Blue, Spencer Ware, and sophomore Kenny Hilliard would pick up the slack in Ford's absence.
