LSU Safety Jamal Adams Will Enter the 2017 NFL Draft

LSU junior safety Jamal Adams will forego his senior season with the Tigers and has declared for the 2017 NFL Draft.

On Friday morning, LSU All-American safety Jamal Adams announced his intent to enter the 2017 NFL Draft today at a live press conference.

Since his arrival at LSU, the 6-foot-1 Lewisville, Texas product has been a stud. He started 26 of 37 games, accumulating 209 tackles, five interceptions and 19 passes broken up. This year, he recorded 76 tackles, finishing third on the team—a defense that was widely regarded as one of the best in the nation.

The All-American joins fellow teammates running back Leonard Fournette and defensive lineman Davon Godchaux as LSU players who have declared for the NFL Draft this year.

Adams is projected to be a top-10 pick, and potentially the first safety to go in the 2017 NFL Draft.

The 2017 NFL Draft will take place on April 27-29.
