A second Tiger has declared for the 2018 NFL Draft.
Cornerback Kevin Toliver will forgo his senior season and enter the NFL Draft, the junior announced on Twitter Monday afternoon. His departure has been long expected by the coaching staff.
A former five-star recruit, Toliver leaves LSU having had an up-and-down career while battling injuries. He finished three seasons in purple and gold with two career interceptions and 16 passes defended.
Toliver does have the ideal size (6 foot 3, 204 pounds), length and speed of a man-to-man cornerback, making him an intriguing prospect heading to the next level. He’s ranked as the No. 16 cornerback by WalterFootball.com.
