Southeast Louisiana senior OLB Sione Teuhema posted nine tackles, five TFL and two sacks in a 56-10 win against Houston Baptist over the weekend.

A former LSU defensive end, Teuhema transferred to SELU following a suspension. He's broken out in 2017 following a move to OLB, with 53 tackles (42 solo), 14.5 TFL and eight sacks on the year. "He appears more comfortable in his transition to outside linebacker," wrote ESPN's Todd McShay.

Former LSU junior G Maea Teuhema transferred to Southeastern Louisiana.

Teuhema is eligible to play immediately in 2017 because the Lions play in the FCS. After leaving LSU, which had indefinitely suspended him for an academics issue, Teuhema considered transferring to Power 5 contenders like Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, UCLA and USC. Teuhema was a four-star 2015 recruit who started 21 games during his two seasons for LSU.

SI's Bruce Feldman reports ex-LSU OL Maea Teuhema has a list of four transfer destinations: USC, Houston, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.

It was initially speculated that Teuhema could drop to an FCS program and join his brother, but it appears he wants to stay at the FBS level and play for a big program. Teuhema has never redshirted, so expect him to sit out if he lands at one of the listed programs.

Suspended LSU junior G Maea Teuhema was given his release and plans to transfer.

Ed Orgeron said Teuhema's suspension was academics related, so it is fair to assume he could not straighten those out in time for the 2017 season. The two-year starter and both tackle and guard will likely drop to a level where he is eligible immediately. Maea's brother, Sione, left LSU for an FCS program last July.

LSU has suspended junior G Maea Teuhema indefinitely due to academic reasons.

"We’ll know about him in the next couple of days," head coach Ed Orgeron said. "We’re unsure of his status." In fact, the head coach called it "academic stuff." The Tigers' offense will be down their starting right guard for the time being, which is a concern since the team will revolve around the rushing attack.

Southeastern Louisiana DL Jon Taylor is receiving "a lot of interest" from the Atlanta Falcons, according to Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline.

The enormous Taylor, who checked in at 6-foot-5 and 349 pounds at his pro day event, came to the Lions via Alabama and Georgia; he was dismissed from both SEC schools after separate arrests. At his pro day workout -- he attended Tulane’s -- Taylor completed 30 reps on the bench, logged a 27-inch vertical jump and an 8-foot-9 broad jump and ran an impressive 40-yard dash in 4.91s.
Apr 10 - 1:45 PM

Former LSU edge player Sione Teuhema transferred to Southeast Louisiana.

He is listed as an outside linebacker on the school's roster. Teuhema missed LSU's spring ball due to suspension, and head coach Les Miles was candid in saying that suspension might never end. As in most cases at the college level, we don't know what initially led to the suspension, but we now know the outcome. Teuhema missed the final four games of 2015 due to suspension and was on the field for 74 snaps last season.

Speaking on the topic of LSU junior DE Sione Teuhema's suspension, HC Les Miles said, "It's a decision he will make."

"It's a decision he'll make. Teuhema's going to take a class," Miles said. Somewhat frustratingly, we still don't know the exact cause of the issue here. Coaches sure are great at painting clouds of generic uncertainty. Back in April, Miles said, "I don't know if that suspension will conclude ever. Go from there." The 6-foot-4, 251-pound junior was suspended for the final four games of the 2015 campaign and did not participate in spring practice. We should have further information regarding Teuhema's status by August camp.

NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein deemed the Cardinals' selection of Southeastern Louisiana CB Harlan Miller to be the best pick of the fifth round.

"In another defense, the quick-twitch cornerback's long speed and lack of strength might be a bigger concern," Zierlein wrote, "but in Arizona, he can concentrate on being a ballhawk in off coverage and making plays on the ball, which is his forte." ESPN's Todd McShay sees the Miller selection likewise. In fact, it was his favorite pick of the draft, due in part to the fact that the Cardinals face some uncertainty in the secondary.

ESPN draft analyst Todd McShay deemed Southeastern Louisiana CB Harlan Miller to be the Cardinals' best pick from the 2016 NFL Draft.

To be clear, "best pick" and "best player" are not necessarily one and the same. Miller had to sweat out the draft, but found himself a Day 3 home when the Cardinals selected him with the No. 205 pick. And McShay is all over that. Wrote the analyst, "With Tyrann Mathieu coming off injury and some other unanswered questions in the secondary, Miller is capable of making the roster and contributing, which is great for a sixth-rounder." McShay believes that poor testing at the NFL Scouting Combine. Six reps on the bench press stand out in the negative well enough. He still viewed him as a fourth-rounder entering the draft, though, and sees his slide into the sixth round as a potential steal for the boys in red.

Cardinals selected Southeastern Louisiana CB Harlan Miller with the No. 205 overall pick of the 2016 NFL draft.

Miller (6'0/182) played cornerback and returned punts for the SE Louisiana Lions, piling up 11 career interceptions and earning first-team All-Southland Conference for his 2015 special teams work. Miller generated Senior Bowl buzz after shutting down Sterling Shepard in practice but flopped at the Combine, running 4.65 with just six reps on the bench. A short-armed (30 7/8") corner with a thin, underdeveloped frame, Miller needs a year in an NFL weight room.

TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline hears that the Panthers are eyeing Southeastern Louisiana DB Harlan Miller as a potential third-round selection.

Two Panther defensive coaches worked out Miller earlier during the process. The team also wined and dined the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder. He shouldn't be considered a potential "Josh Norman replacement," but more a depth corner. Miller's lack of pure athleticism could scare off teams -- even teams who like his game-tape.

LSU HC Les Miles hinted that the suspension of junior DE Sione Teuhema might stretch on indefinitely.

"Teuhema is (on the team) but currently under suspension. I don't know if that suspension will conclude ever. Go from there," Miles said. The 6-foot-4, 251-pound junior was held out of the final four games of the 2015 regular season. He did not participate in a pair of practices over the last week and also missed the team's Saturday scrimmage. There is no information to this point as to why, exactly, Teuhema has landed in such hot water with the team. In seven games last season, Teuhema recorded 13 tackles (2.0 for loss) and a quarterback hurry. He was a consensus three-star recruit out of high school.

The Panthers will host Southeastern Louisiana DB Harlan Miller for a visit in the next few weeks, according to Tony Pauline.

The Panthers also had dinner with the small school corner prior to his pro day. Miller attended the Senior Bowl and did not look out of place. However, his NFL Combine testing was horrendous. Per Zach Whitman, 99 percent of NFL corners have a higher SPARQ score than Miller. The Panthers are on the lookout for a slot corner after stating Bene Benwikere will start on the outside.

NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein "love[s]" SE Louisiana DB Harlan Miller's tape and willingness to defend the run, but has dropped the prospect's draft grade anyway due to poor athletic testing.

Miller checked into the Combine at 182 pounds, "awfully light for a physical cornerback who will be taking on much bigger running backs," Zierlein wrote. Miller somehow could only throw up six bench reps. Then, he ran a mediocre 4.65 40. "He's thin, lacks strength and didn't run well," Zierlein wrote. "He tested poorly in quickness drills as well. Love the tape, scared by the workout." What's unfortunate for Miller is that he had gained some real industry-wide momentum coming off a stellar Senior Bowl week. The Raiders were reportedly interested, at least at that time.
