Another LSU defensive player is off the board

NCAA Football: Citrus Bowl-Louisiana State vs Louisville Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

In a move that will surely be a tough pill to swallow for LSU fans, the Atlanta Falcons selected Duke Riley with their third-round pick in Friday night’s NFL Draft.

Riley becomes the third ex-LSU player on the Falcons, along with Deion Jones and Jalen Collins.

Riley is the fifth LSU player drafted this year, joining Leonard Fournette, Jamal Adams, Tre’Davious White, and Ethan Pocic.

Congratulations to Duke Riley, and best of luck in Atlanta!
