Quarterback Zach Mettenberger #8 of the LSU Tigers celebrates with offensive guard Trai Turner #56


LSU offensive lineman Trai Turner is the sixth Tiger player to leave college early and head to the NFL.

Turner, a redshirt sophomore in 2013, will bypass his remaining two years of eligibility, after garnering second team All-SEC honors as a guard.

The 6-foot-3, 316-pound Turner beats Wednesday's deadline to declare, and joins LSU teammates Jeremy Hill, Jarvis Landry, Odell Beckham, Ego Ferguson, and Anthony Johnson in doing so.
