Ex-Tigers make mark at NFL Combine

A look back at how former LSU players fared at the NFL Combine in Indianapolis this week.

Linebacker Bradie James will likely be the first LSU player chosen in the NFL Draft. He measured 6-foot-2 3/8 inches and 242 pounds and was seen talking with officials from the Dallas Texans and Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have been keeping tabs on James since the Senior Bowl. 

Running backs LaBrandon Toefield and Domanick Davis each were measured with 9.5 percent body fat - among the minority of players with single-digit marks in that department. But both former Tigers followed the lead of other backs at the combine who decided not to be timed in the 40-yard dash.

In the aftermath of having just four backs run the 40, NFL officials are upset over pro agents dictating that their clients bypass the combine tests.

Norman LeJeune capped his senior season at LSU with some strong performances and also helped his pro stock. He was one of just seven safeties who took part in all of the skills tests at the RCA Dome.

LeJeune was clocked at 4.68 and 4.62 in the 40, and recorded 11 repetitions in the bench press. He was measured at 6-0, 200, and turned in a 33.5-inch vertical jump and standing broad jumps of 9-6 and 9-6.5.

Those numbers put LeJeune in the middle of the pack of the 21 safeties at the combine in terms of size, speed and leaping ability. But he rated lower when it came to the strength test.

These former Tigers along with more players aspiring to play in the NFL will converge on LSU next month, as a handful of college campuses host Pro Day combines. The bulk of players who didn't take part in combine drills will have their wares on display on Pro Day in advance of the NFL draft.
