Breaking News: LSU Tigers Confirm Another top Wants To Leave Following What happened

LSU WR Brian Thomas Jr. Declares for 2024 NFL Draft
The skilled wideout will take his talents to the next level, anticipated first round draft selection.
LSU wide receiver Brian Thomas Jr. is heading to the NFL after declaring for the 2024 NFL Draft on Tuesday night.

Thomas, a major ingredient to the Tigers’ offensive performance in 2023, made splashes alongside Malik Nabers in the wide receiver room.

Despite Nabers garnering more of the plaudits, Brian Kelly believes Thomas’ name deserves to be included among the top wideouts in college football.

“I think you have to include Brian Thomas‘ numbers and Brian I think rivals Marvin Harrison‘s numbers right now and he’s in conversation for the Heisman,” Kelly said this fall. “I think if you take both my receivers, those two and what they have done could easily be in that conversation.”

Thomas rounded off the 2023 season with 68 receptions for 1,177 yards and 17 touchdowns. He concluded his LSU career with 127 catches for 1,897 yards and 24 touchdowns.

This fall, he was selected an AP All-American.

Now, his attention is set on the 2023 NFL Draft with analyst Mel Kiper keeping his name in the debate among the great athletes.

“The way I line them up right now,” Kiper remarked last month. “Rome Odunze, Malik Nabers, then Keon Coleman. Then you can’t forget about this other bunch of receivers like Adonai Mitchell from Texas, Xavier Worthy from Texas. I said Ladd McConkey, Xavier Legette from South Carolina is really good. Brian Thomas Jr., the other wide receiver we talked about with his stature and catch radius … To me, this receiving group is the finest in the draft.”

The Tigers have now lost Jayden Daniels, Brian Thomas Jr, Charles Turner, Mekhi Wingo and Jordan Jefferson to the NFL Draft with more decisions to be announced sooner rather than later.
