LSU dynamic duo to go

Posted: Updated:
BATON ROUGE, La -

Both Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr., according to multiple reports, are giving up their remaining eligibility and entering the NFL draft.  Landry and Beckham were the top receiving duo in the SEC this season and could be considered the top receiving duo in LSU football history.

Landry caught 137 passes for 1,809 yards and 15 touchdowns in his three seasons at LSU. A second team All-Southeastern Conference player by the Associated Press, Landry's 1,193 receiving yards in the 2013 season on 77 catches ranks him third in LSU history behind Josh Reed (94-1,740) and Wendell Davis (80-1,244).

Beckham, who also returned kicks and punts and won the Paul Hornung Award as the nation's most versatile player, will get added value from the NFL for his special teams play.  Through the end of the regular season, he was second in the nation and first in the SEC in all-purpose yards with 185 a game. His 2,315 all-purpose yards on the season through 13 games is the LSU record.

Both Landry and Beckham are expected to go in the first two rounds.  The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the draft is January 15th.
