The Tigers had as many as five players projected to be first-round possibilities before their championship win, including Delpit, Jefferson and K'Lavon Chaisson.
Senior quarterback Joe Burrow is projected to be the No. 1 overall pick to the Cincinnati Bengals, and senior cornerback Kristian Fulton is also expected to be a first-round possibility.
Even after the season ends, it's fitting that this LSU team appears poised to break yet another record.
LSU's record for first-round picks is four, with JaMarcus Russell going No. 1 overall followed by safety LaRon Landry at No. 6, wide receiver Dwayne Bowe at No. 23 and wide receiver Craig Davis at No. 30.
LSU's record for the most players selected in a single NFL draft is nine, a mark hit in back-to-back drafts in 2013 and 2014.
