BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - NFL Media draft analyst Mike Mayock has released his first position-by-position rankings for the 2016 NFL Draft and a couple of Tigers are included on the list.
Former LSU offensive lineman Vadal Alexander earned the No. 2 ranking at the guard position. Mayock believes that "teams will no doubt be intrigued by Alexander's length, size and power, but this year should have proved that his only position in the pros is at guard and that his lack of athleticism could limit which teams will consider him in the draft."
Also making the list is former Tiger linebacker Deion Jones. Mayock rates Jones as the No. 5 linebacker in the draft, calling him a "three-down linebacker prospect with outstanding athleticism and a willing, aggressive mindset for the position."
