01/02/2015 - LSU LB Kwon Alexander, CB Jalen Collins declare for draft...The good news for LSU: it's annually as laden with talent as any team in the country. The bad news: it annually sees some of that talent leave for the NFL with eligibility remaining. That annual exodus continued over the New Year's holiday with two key junior defenders -- leading tackler Kwon Alexander and cornerback Jalen Collins -- announcing their intentions to declare for the 2015 draft. Collins wrote that he "appreciate[s] the opportunities I've received at LSU and I would like to thank all of my coaches, teammates and supporters throughout the years." Though never a full-time starter, the redshirt junior has been a regular member of the LSU secondary rotation the past three seasons, starting multiple games across 2012, 2013 and 2014. His nine pass defenses tied for the team lead this season. - Jerry Hinnen, CBSSports.com
