Posted on: March 8, 2010 1:36 pm
With the 2010 draft only six weeks away, most are understandably focusing on it. NFL scouts are always looking ahead to next year, however, and news of a highly touted prospect getting arrested is always worth monitoring.
According to published reports , LSU wide receiver Terrance Toliver was arrested outside of Fred's, a bar close to the LSU campus, and charged with disturbing the police, public intoxication and interfering with a police officer. Police, according to the report, were forced to taser Toliver after he would not cooperate.
Toliver, along with two other men involved in the fight, was cited and released. Toliver participated in LSU's spring practice prior to the incident. He met with head coach Les Miles Sunday.
Toliver, who just finished his senior season, is expected to be the next in a long line of Tiger receivers to earn a high round selection in the NFL Draft. Since 2002 the Tigers have had nine receivers drafted, including five among the top 50 picks.
Toliver finished the 2009 season with 53 catches for 735 yards and 3 touchdowns, behind Brandon LaFell, another likely top 50 selection.
