LSU junior RB Michael Ford has declared for April's NFL Draft, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.
We are starting to think something is up with LSU that the rest of us don't know about. Ford's departure brings LSU's total to nearly ten of juniors that have declared for April's Draft. "I have speed, I can catch, I can block and I can run through tackles," Ford said. "All the guys going pro? Our dream is to make it to the NFL." He received a fourth- to sixth-round projection from the NFL.
Losing Ware and Ford won't hurt LSU that much since they still have 2-3 pro-caliber RBs on the roster. But their defensive losses will definitely be felt next year.
