On Wednesday, seven LSU players declared for the 2020 NFL draft.

On Friday, an eighth Tiger announced his decision to leave school early.

K’Lavon Chaisson, the uber-talented defensive end for LSU, said Friday morning via social media that he was entering the draft.

Earlier this week, safety Grant Delpit, linebackers Patrick Queen and Jacob Phillips, center Lloyd Cushenberry, wide receiver Justin Jefferson, offensive tackle Saahdiq Charles and running back Clyde Edwards-Helaire declared for the draft.

Chaisson is the No. 21-ranked player in the latest Fanspeak-Steve big board.

At 6-foot-4, 250 pounds, the redshirt sophomore came on strong late in the season, recording  4.5 of his 6.5 sacks in LSU’s final four games. But Chaisson also comes with an injury history, which you can read about here.
