    he may not get drafted. Sucks to see a guy give his body up for 4 years, and then not get compensated. If he doesn't get drafted, maybe Les can hire him to help out with the O line. Ciron took a lot of heat, but he was an LSU Tiger through and through, and i wish him the best.

    Black will likely get drafted late. He won't play left tackle in the NFL, but he has potential to play guard or right tackle.

    I'll be interested to see how this plays out. Not saying that I think he's going to be an early pick because he's not, but this is the first time I've heard of his knee being a problem. We'll soon see.

    Ciron will get drafted. No worries there.

    I sure hope so. I'd like to see him do well but he looked terrible at the combine and didn't have a great year so there could be something to the knee thing. Who knows, I just hope for the best.

    Knee replacement surgery?

    That's pretty major and likely career ending.

    I find it highly unlikely that it would be a knee replacement surgery. 1) Because that surgery is usually performed on older people since the life of an artificial joint is only 10-12 years, and 2) He wouldn't be "performing below his old level" in games and at the Combine; he wouldn't be able to be an athlete at all.
