LSU CB Tre'Davious White accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl.

In 2016, White was Pro Football Focus' top-graded corner. The four-year starter received a late first-round grade last January but has been projected to go in Day 2 in early mock drafts due to the loaded corner class in which he finds himself. The 6-foot, 197-pound White, a finalist for the Jim Thorpe Award, had 35 tackles and two interceptions en route to first-team All-American honors by the AFCA.

LSU dismissed redshirt junior DT Travonte Valentine for a violation of team rules.

This time, presumably for good. And what a shame that is, because Valentine had the goods to be the type of immovable interior presence that LSU ships pro-ready to the NFL. The 6-foot-3, 345-pounder began his career at LSU as the No. 3 defensive tackle recruit in the country before being dismissed as a true freshman for violating team rules. He spent time at two different JUCOs before resurfacing on the Tigers' roster this fall. His return was hyped, but it went just about as well as his first stint at the school. Valentine appeared in only five games this past season, and none of the last seven. His football career is hanging in the balance.

LSU five-star 2017 verbal DT commit Tyler Shelvin has shut down his recruitment.

Shelvin took an official visit to LSU this past weekend. He came out of it saying, "I'm not taking anymore official visits. My experiences this weekend on my official visit to LSU. I liked what I saw and I want to stay at home." And with that, it looks like LSU will get its man. The 6-foot-3, 300-pounder hails from Crowley, Louisiana, and makes for an imposing presence on the field. Scout.com notes that he "[r]eally moves well for a guy his size" and has shown "he can chase the ball." With Shelvin looking rock-solid, the real question now is whether HC Ed Orgeron can also reel in five-star DL stud Marvin Wilson. That is well within the realm of possibility, though Wilson isn't expected to make a commitment until National Signing Day itself.

LSU TE Colin Jeter will play in the East-West Shrine Game.

Jeter (11-157-1 in 2016) didn't even reach 25 career receptions in the FBS, but he has the pedigree and size to get a look. The 6-foot-7, 254-pounder's touchdown catch came from QB Danny Etling in the 29-9 win over Louisville in the Buffalo Wild Wings Citrus Bowl.

LSU junior WR Malachi Dupre will forego his final season of collegiate eligibility to enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

Because he played in an offense with the openness of a ghost town diner, Dupre's statistical output at LSU has never truly jumped off the page. This past season, the 6-foot-4, 187-pounder registered a 41-593-3 receiving line. Don't be fooled by those numbers, though. He has oodles of physical talent which simply went to waste with the Tigers. Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline grades him as a potential second-round pick, while Walter Football's Charlie Campbell views him as the No. 7 draft-eligible wideout in the 2017 class. Over the summer, ESPN's Todd McShay referred to Dupre as "fearless working the middle of the field."

ESPN's Gerry Hamilton notes that LSU four-star 2017 JUCO verbal WR commit Stephen Guidry " brings legit 4.40 speed to Baton Rouge with the ability to take the top off the defense."

"While a bit straight lined and raw as a route runner," Hamilton writes, "Guidry is a physical receiver [who] plays though contact and consistently plucks the ball out of the air against attached coverage." The 6-foot-4, 190-pounder had reopened his recruitment in October after earlier pledging to LSU, but he re-committed to the Tigers in December.
Jan 13 - 5:06 PM

LSU junior WR D.J. Chark will return for his senior season.

Chark is one of the team’s fastest players and a top-notch deep threat. The former four-star prospect by ESPN.com posted an eye-opening 17.9 yards per catch in 2016 and tied for tops on the team with three touchdown catches. Chark will be either the team's No. 1 or No. 2 option next year. Travin Dural is graduating, while Malachi Dupre is considering whether or not to declare for the NFL Draft. Chark's 26 catches were No. 3 on the squad behind Dupre (41) and Dural (28) this season.

In an NFL Media poll, three of five NFL executives said that they would take LSU RB Leonard Fournette over former Ohio State RB Ezekiel Elliott.

"I really like Elliott," said one executive, "but Fournette is an animal. Guys like him don't come around very often." A Zeke-backing exec sees the current Cowboys star as a more well-rounded player, though, noting that the former Buckeye is "more versatile and would fit in any offense." While Elliott has already proven that he can more than hold his own at the NFL level, one personnel man noted that Fournette's upside could just be too overwhelming to ignore. "You don't see guys with Fournette's size/speed combination very often," he said. "He's a rare, rare talent. He's the most talented runner to come out since Adrian Peterson."

Former LSU HC Les Miles indicated that he is keeping his options open outside of the Power 5.

"There are a number of great jobs out there and I'm not limiting myself. But I do want the opportunity to build, I want to stay there some time and I want to win championships. That's pretty simple," Miles said. A sign of just how respected Miles was at LSU, Jamal Adams' family asked him to attend Adams' press announcement of his NFL Draft jump. Miles made his coaching comments while back on LSU's campus on Friday. He did not reject the possibility of working in the media as a television analyst, though that would not be his first choice of future employment. Said Miles, "Maybe at another time. Yeah, maybe, but not at this point. I'm a coach." He reportedly interviewed with Minnesota earlier this week, before the Gophers hired Western Michigan's P.J. Fleck to replace the departed Tracy Claeys.

LSU junior S Jamal Adams announced that he'll enter the 2017 NFL Draft.

ESPN.com's Mel Kiper rates Adams as the No. 6 player overall, while CBS ranks him No. 14 overall. "Unlike most defenders with his seemingly reckless, kamikaze style of play, Adams never seems out of control," Rob Rang wrote. "Adams is just as instinctive in coverage. His easy athleticism allows him to drop down and play nickel corner, covering slot receivers while keeping his eyes on the quarterback." The 6-foot-1, 213-pound Adams was a Pro Football Focus first-team All American this past season. "He's got real good versatility to play all over the field," said NFL scout Chris Landry. "He can cover the slot or the receiver outside. He's not the strongest guy against the run but he's got the playmaking ability that makes safeties special. ... He's been compared to Tyrann Mathieu but he's different. Not quite as quick but bigger." Last month, ex-Steelers S Ryan Clark said Adams has the "same explosion and instincts" as Troy Polamalu.

Former Heisman Trophy winner Charlie Ward noted that LSU four-star 2017 verbal QB commit Myles Brennan "has all the fundamentals."

Ward worked with Brennan during the practice week leading up to this past weekend's Under Armour All-America Game. Said the former FSU gunslinger, "He’s slender built and he’ll improve in that area once he gets to college. He has all the fundamentals, pocket presence and knowing where to go with the football. He’s got good mobility so for me, he’s not been a big surprise, but I didn’t know much about him." Ward's biggest criticism came in terms of the 6-foot-4, 172-pounder's strength drawbacks at this stage of his development. "That’s mainly where all his issues are right now because when you need that short step throw, that’s where his issues are getting it to where he wants to get it to," Ward said. Brennan ranks as the No 116 overall prospect for the 2017 cycle by ESPN 300's metrics.

120 Sports' Michael Kim reports that former LSU HC Les Miles traveled to the Twin Cities on Wednesday to interview with Minnesota regarding their open head-coaching position.

While the coaching carousel has spun at a high rate of speed this winter, one name which has not surfaced on a heavy basis would be one of the biggest out there. There has been little noise as to what Miles has planned for his 2017. However, with Minnesota firing HC Tracy Claeys earlier in the week, an unexpected opportunity has popped open for those who might have been left out of the loop on jobs at the level of Texas or Oregon. In addition to Miles, Western Michigan HC P.J. Fleck and Navy HC Ken Niumatalolo have also reportedly seen serious interest from the Gophers as they attempt to re-settle their program after a turbulent, ugly past month.
Jan 5 - 5:12 PM

LSU OL Ethan Pocic accepted an invitation to the Senior Bowl.

Pocic is coming off a tremendous season in which he was named a FWAA First Team All-American. He led LSU in snaps played (680) and knockdowns (92) and allowed just one sack. Pocic's versatility will greatly appeal to the NFL. This 6-foot-7, 310-pounder was a three-year starter at three different positions.

LSU junior DL Davon Godchaux will enter the 2017 NFL Draft, according to Ian Rapoport.

It was an odd season for Godchaux, who was suspended in late September on charges of false imprisonment, domestic abuse battery and child endangerment... but the charges were dropped shortly after due to inconsistent statements from the "victim." He tallied 6.5 sacks this year from the interior and should be a to three round pick.
Jan 1 - 10:07 AM

LSU junior S Jamal Adams will hold a press conference on January 6 to announce his future plans.

Adams may well declare for the draft after the calendar flips over to 2017. Entering Saturday's bowl showdown with Louisville, the 6-foot-1, 213-pounder had recorded 70 tackles (6.5 for loss), a sack, an interception and a forced fumble in 11 games played. Earlier this winter, an NFC executive called Adams his favorite player in the country, noting that he's "all over the field."
