Chris Faulk latest LSU Tiger to turn pro
BATON ROUGE - LSU's list of underclassmen entering the NFL draft reached 11 when offensive tackle Chris Faulk decided to forgo his senior season.
Faulk was considered a candidate for early entry before the season, but he suffered a season-ending knee injury in the opener against North Texas.
Apparently he felt that he had sufficiently recovered from knee surgery to be able to convince NFL scouts that he's ready for the next level.
LSU sports information director Michael Bonnette told The Advocate Wednesday night that Faulk told him he was going to the NFL.
