The LSU Tigers are looking to get back on track after a really tough, late-game collapse against the Alabama Crimson Tide, and Mississippi State is looking to be the second team to beat the Tigers this season. I think this could be a big ‘get back on track’ win for the Tigers, who are hungry after that tough loss.

Here are the top pro prospects for both teams:

LSU Tigers

Mississippi State Bulldogs

Here is a preview for what you’re getting with the team by team looks:

99 Sam Montgomery, Defensive End, Junior  6’4″ 245 pounds

Montgomery has about as quick a first step as I have seen in quite some time. His numbers as a RS Sophomore back that up with 13 TFL and 9 sacks heading into the national championship game. He has insane athletic ability and great length, and he is still growing into his frame and has a ton of room to grow as a pass rusher as well. LSU’s defense is full of playmakers, but I think even individually this guy stands out as one of the best defensive players I’ve seen in college ball. He has elite upside and I think he should be a top five pre-season graded player by most outlets, and if he’s not, you might have to question why. He is relentless in his pursuit and has a great motor, and he looks like he just flat out has fun playing the game. Motivated by the death of his brother, a life-changing event that can shape a man as an individual, something that teams will look into as well. Bottom line–this kid is a beast and he is going to have to do a lot to make me un-impressed next season. He is what baseball fans would call a “five-tool” player and I think he has the potential to be an elite NFL pass rusher.
