    Man, that backfield was sick.

    Mo Claiborne
    Honey Badger
    Eric Reid
    Patrick Peterson

    If LSU ain't DBU, then it doesn't exist.

    Those of us that thought he had no business declaring early, look pretty stupid now. I can't think of a better person to prove me (us) wrong. Good job Eric and sorry for doubting you.

    Me too, but it helps that he was the exact type of safety that the 49ers were looking for in their system. Keep tearing it up and making LSU proud.

    A lot of folks were down on Reid his last season. I never understood it, he always looked like a future pro starter to me.

    I think it was him being out of position and taking bad angles that led to long TD's on numerous occasions...but he obviously learned from it

    He got burnt on a couple of deep routes vs. lesser competition and didn't have the big plays that he did in 2011.

    Loston is this years Eric Reid, many say he'll end up around the 6-7th round. I like him in the 3rd to 5th round, still early, but there are a number of teams that like what they see in Loston. He will grade out very well. Best of luck to him and all the Tigers. Loston runs well, has great size and speed, will do well in the interview. Many teams using the TE out wide in formations, defenses need the taller more physical Safeties. He will be a 25 year old rookie in the NFL.

    Speaking of age, Eric Reid is the youngest player in this years Pro Bowl, once again, Congrats to Eric and DBU...

    I agree on Loston completely. I. was a little surprised he came back because of his age, but glad he did. I also think 3rd to 5th round.
