The dynamic wide receiving tandem for the LSU Tigers of Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. will both be entering the 2014 NFL Draft, according to Yahoo’s Rand Getlin.

Both Landry and Beckham were the lifeblood for the LSU offense this past season, and also played a huge part in the progression of QB Zach Mettenberger.
Landry finished the 2013 season with 77 receptions for 1,193 yards and 10 touchdowns, while Beckham wound up with 59 catches for 1,152 yards and eight scores in helping the Tigers and head coach Les Miles to an 11-2 record and a win over Iowa in the Outback Bowl this past New Year’s Day.
A majority of the draft experts have both young men pegged as first day picks, and if you were to watch both of them work this past season, you could see why.
Out of the two, Beckham may provide the most versatile option of the tandem for an NFL team as he’s the special teams star of the bunch.
Still, big gain for the NFL but a huge loss for the Tigers who now need to break in a new QB next season and now two new go-to wide receivers.
