LSU continues to get closer to breaking the record for most draft picks in a single NFL draft.
After having five players drafted in the first round on Thursday, LSU had five more players selected in the second and third rounds on Friday. That brings the total number of Tigers drafted ten and are only five away from breaking Ohio State’s record of 14 players.
Here is a look at the LSU players selected on Friday night.
Grant Delpit, No. 44, Cleveland Browns
There’s another member of DBU in the Browns secondary. Just one year after taking Greedy Williams with the 46th pick, Grant Delpit joins his former teammate on the North Coast. Delpit is coming off of a solid junior season with 65 total tackles, two sacks, and two interceptions. Delpit is coming off of a nagging ankle injury that caused the New Orleans native’s stock to drop down to the second round.
Kristian Fulton, No. 61, Tennessee Titans
The Tennessee Titans added a solid corner to their ranks late in the second round in Kristian Fulton. The New Orleans native is coming off of a great junior season where he was paired up with freshman Derek Stingley as one of the most formidable defensive duos in the country with 15 passes defended, an interception, and really broke out in the national championship game against Clemson with a career-high six tackles.
Damien Lewis, No. 69, Seattle Seahawks
Pete Carroll saw what Lewis did under head coach Ed Orgeron and knew he had to get the offensive lineman from LSU. The Canton, Mississippi native was named First-Team All-America in 2019 from the Athletic and second-team All-SEC from both the SEC Coaches and AP.
Lloyd Cushenberry, No. 83, Denver Broncos
The other half of LSU’s heart and soul of the offensive line in Lloyd Cushenberry is headed to Denver, making it the third straight starting center to be selected in the NFL Draft dating back to the 2015 Draft with Ethan Pocic. The Carville, Louisiana native started 28 consecutive games at center for the purple and gold from 2018-19 and the Tigers were 25-3 during that span.
Jacob Phillips, No. 97, Cleveland Browns
Day two of LSU players getting their name called ended with the Browns going to the well once again, drafting Jacob Phillips. The Nashville native led the SEC in total tackles (113) and ranked No. 7 in the league in tackles per game (7.5).
