Former LSU Player Invited to NFL Draft


Another LSU Tiger has been invited to attend the draft and appear on stage this year, but not as a draft pick this time.

The NFL Commissioner always announces each teams first round pick, and in what has become a tradition in recent years a former player for each team announces their second round pick.

  • The Atlanta Falcons have listed longtime Center Todd McClure as their retired player representative this year.

    To be honest some LSU fans probably cringe a bit thinking of McClure as an all time Falcons great.

    All will have fond memories of his days in the purple and gold at LSU, as well as his time at Central High in Baton Rouge.

    McClure was honored as a first team All SEC player after both his junior and senior seasons at LSU before going to the Falcons in the 7th round of the 1999 NFL Draft.

    Late draft picks are usually an afterthought at best, but McClure was able to work his way onto the team with hard work and determination.

    During training camp of his rookie season he suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his right knee, and missed his entire rookie season.

    During his second season he took over as the Falcons starting center after Calvin Collins was moved to guard.

    Since that game, McClure would miss only one game and was the Falcons starting center until his retirement.

    McClure started nearly 200 games for the Falcons. He never made a Pro Bowl but he was widely respected around the league and a fan favorite in Atlanta. Some have speculated that he may get his name in the Falcons ring of honor.
