Blake Ferguson was selected with the 185th pick in the sixth round by the Miami Dolphins. Ferguson was the team captain for the 2018 & 2019 season. He played in all 15 games for the 2019 season at long snapper for the 15-0 national champion Tigers.   

Rashard Lawrence

Rashard Lawrence was selected with the 131st pick in the fourth round by the Arizona Cardinals. As a senior, Lawrence solidified the Tiger's dominant defensive line during his time at LSU.

Lawrence was a team captain as a sophomore but injuries caused him to miss time. He started his entire junior season, finishing strong as the Fiesta Bowl Defensive Player of the Game in a win over UCF.

As a Tiger, Lawrence earned second-team All-SEC honors during his senior year.

Saahdiq Charles

Saahdiq Charles was selected with the 108th pick in the fourth round by the Washington Redskins. Charles was a key member of LSU's Joe Moore Award winning offensive line that helped protect Joe Burrow during the team's championship season.

Delpit won the 2019 Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back but is widely considered to have had a better 2018 season than in 2019.

The two-time first team All-America in 2018 and 2019  played in 40 games with 37 starts and finished his LSU career with 199 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, 7.0 sacks and 8 interceptions.

As a two-year starter at center for LSU in 2018-19, he started 28 consecutive games.
