The Louisiana State Tigers haven't even had 72 hours to celebrate their 2019-2020 National Championship before the underclassmen began declaring for the 2020 NFL Draft.

Star running back Clyde Edwards-Haire, standout wide receiver Justin Jefferson and All-America safety Grant Delpit are among several players who will forego the remainder of their eligibility to turn pro.

"We just had a ideal year", Jefferson said, according to Yahoo Sports' Pete Thamel. The Tigers also lose eleven seniors including Joe Burrow, Rashard Lawrence, and Kristian Fulton.

Edwards-Helaire rushed for 1,414 yards and 16 touchdowns this season to go with 453 yards and one TD receiving. He is projected as a potential second-round pick.

Kiper ranks Delpit as the top draft-eligible safety and No. 10 overall prospect for the 2020 draft. His 85 total tackles included 12 for losses and three sacks.

Phillips was LSU's leader in total tackles with 113.

Delpit was a first-team All-American in 2018 whose production also picked up in the closing weeks of the season. Charles (6-4, 295) was limited to eight games due to what LSU coach Ed Orgeron termed "coach's decisions". Charles made the announcement via social media Wednesday.
