11. S Jamal Adams Drafted By: New York Jets (2017)
There’s just something about the sixth pick of the NFL Draft and LSU. Jamal Adams is the third Tiger on this list drafted sixth overall, and we can add safety LaRon Landry and Hall of Fame quarterback Y.A. Tittle to the list too, all drafted at number six. Adams has only played two seasons but looks like the best of the modern bunch.
Adams had 209 tackles in three years at LSU, and he already has 197 in two seasons with the Jets. Adams brings the hammer as a run stuffing strong safety, and he added eight quarterback hits, a forced fumble, and an interception in what amounted to a Pro Bowl 2018 campaign. He looks like he’ll move up this list in a big way over the next few years.
