LSU tied an NFL record with 14 players drafted in the 2020 NFL Draft, but tight end Thaddeus Moss and defensive lineman Breiden Fehoko were not among the selected Tigers. However, both players found new homes in the NFL.
Fehoko signed with the Los Angeles Chargers minutes after the draft, and he’s excited to rock the powder blues.
As for Moss, the tight end signed with the Washington Redskins after the draft, but he reportedly had a Jones fracture in his right foot, after getting a physical at the NFL Combine according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.
LSU now has 16 players from the 2019 championship team on NFL rosters.
UPDATE – Three more LSU players signed to teams following the NFL draft.
Linebacker Michael Divinity will join Moss in Tampa Bay after signing with the Buccaneers. Tackle Badara Traore will head to Solider Field after signing to the Chicago Bears, and wide receiver Derrick Dillon signed to the New York Giants.
Offensive lineman Adrian Magee signed with the New Orleans Saints. Magee started each game of LSU’s 15-0 run and showed versatility, playing left tackle twice and left guard the other 13 games.
