Another LSU Draft Pick Signs His NFL Contract
LSU didn’t break their own record of picks in this year’s NFL Draft, but they still sent a strong crop to the NFL through their annual “picking contest”. Some of those players, like Leonard Fournette and Tre’Davious White, signed massive contracts, but others are just happy to be in a position to play.
Former LSU linebacker Kendell Beckwith has signed a contract with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Clinton native was selected in the third round of the 2017 NFL Draft by the Bucs. He’s now looking to make his way into the starting lineup.
Looking at Tampa Bay’s depth charts (there isn’t an official one from the team, but other publications project their own) Beckwith is currently slotted to backup Devante Bond or Lavonte David, but there’s a solid chance the LSU product will get to start some pre-season games, and perhaps steal one of those jobs for good.
We’ll have to wait and see what happens, but for now, Beckwith’s NFL dream is now “contract official”.
