LSU junior linebacker Kevin Minter and junior safety Eric Reid have chosen to test their skills at the next level according to various reports.

LSU confirmed that Minter has opted to forgo his final season of eligibility and make himself available for the NFL Draft.

Reid has yet to confirm the report via twitter that he had signed with an agency and was giving up his college career.

Minter, a native of Suwanee, Ga., just finished one of the most productive seasons for a Tiger defender in school history, racking up 130 tackles, 15.0 tackles for loss, 4.0 sacks and four quarterback hurries.

Reid was third on the team with 91 tackles this season and was a consensus All-America choice.
