A total of 16 LSU players participated in LSU’s Pro Day 2023. Among those 16 players were the nine invited to the NFL Combine in late February. These players would have the opportunity to highlight their talent and skill to representatives from all 32 teams in the NFL, including the New England Patriots head coach, Bill Belichick.
LSU’s Pro Day began at 10 a.m. in the Charles McClendon Practice Facility. Upon entering the facility, the Tigers lined up for measurements. It was followed by drills that evaluated vertical jump, broad jump, and 225-pound bench press. After the combine testing was completed, the Tigers gathered on the field to participate in a series of drills to assess their speed and agility. They did the 40-yard dash, pro agility drill, the 60- yard shuttle, and the 3-cone drill.

Bernard-Converse stole the show. After not earning an NFL Combine invite, he used it as fuel for the biggest job interview of his life in Baton Rouge on Wednesday. Along with the standout defensive back, defensive tackle Jaquelin Roy impressed during his testing drills. Roy ran a 5.13 40-yard dash.

The players to watch were B.J. Ojulari, Kayshon Boutte, and Jaquelin Roy. According to several mock drafts, Ojulari holds the highest draft stock. Many project him to be chosen in the late first round or as an early second-round pick. However, that does not mean he has gotten comfortable and is not reaching his full potential.
