What Shreveport Players Are Expected to Get Picked in the NFL Draft?
Tre'Davious White is expected to be a first round draft pick. Of course he played his college ball for LSU and was part of the famed Tiger DBU.
SEC Country has White going to the Saints with the 11th pick in the first round. White played his high school at Green Oaks in Shreveport and he was just honored by his community this weekend.
In 12 games for the Tigers, White had 35 tackles, two interceptions and a return touchdown last season. He’s also fully capable of being a kick return specialist.
The other local player to watch is Trent Taylor from Louisiana Tech. He played his high school ball at Evangel. He's a 5-8" receiver who weighs 178 lbs. During his time with the Bulldogs, Taylor caught 327 passes for 4179 yards and 32 touchdowns. He is the schools all time leader in receptions and is second in yards and touchdowns.
He's expected to go in the 5th or 6th round. The Denver Broncos have show a keen interest in Taylor.
Brandon Wilson was a Calvary standout and took his talent to Houston. He's a 5'11", 200 pound running back, but could be converted into a cornerback in the pros. He did catch plenty of eyes at the NFL combine when he ran a 4.36 and showed off a vertical jump of 41 inches. Brandon is projected to go in the 4th or 5th round.
Weston Steelhammer played high school ball at Calvary and wen on to the Air Force Academy. At 6'2" and 201 pounds, he's considered small by NFL standards, but he will still be hoping to get a call to get a shot in the pros.
And with an outside shot at landing a spot on an NFL squad, you'll find Savion Brown from Fairpark. He played college ball at ULL.
