When either Ego Ferguson or Anthony Johnson get drafted during the May NFL draft it will mark the 11th straight year the LSU Tigers have provided a defensive lineman to the NFL via the draft.
No other school in college football can make that statement today and the Tigers have in my opinion the next breakout star defensive lineman in Danielle Hunter.
The 6-5, 255 pound defensive end was the most dominant defensive player in the spring for the Tigers and the former Morton Ranch High School in Texas standout has many admirers on the team.
“Danielle had a super spring,” said LSU offensive tackle La’el Collins. “He is just a terrific athlete with real long arms and he is explosive off the snap. He has gotten stronger and he is just not beating people with speed, but with “power” moves also. I’m glad he is on our side and we don’t have to play against him. He’s a special talent.”
Last season Hunter recorded 57 tackles, 8 tackles for losses, 3 quarterback sacks and 5 quarterback hurries.
Watch out for #94 in 2014.
