LSU wide receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham Jr. will enter the 2014 NFL draft, multiple sources told Yahoo Sports.
Landry finished the season with 77 receptions, 1,193 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns. Beckham finished with 59 receptions, 1,152 yards and eight TDs. The Tigers finished the season 10-3, beating Iowa 21-14 in the Outback Bowl.
Landry is expected to announce his pro intentions within the next 24 hours.
LSU had a potent passing game this season which saw senior quarterback Zach Mettenberger finish atop the SEC's passer efficiency ratings while completing 64.9 percent of his passes for 3,082 yards and 22 touchdowns. Landry's and Beckham's receptions accounted for more than two-thirds of Mettenberger's yardage and all but four of his TD passes.
Yahoo Sports reported last month that Landry had begun putting together a plan to prepare himself for the NFL scouting combine in February. That plan included combine training, position-specific coaching, physical therapy, nutritional planning, interview preparation and media training. Beckham Jr. has begun interviewing agents in the last 24 hours, sources told Yahoo Sports.
NFL draft experts and league sources project Landry and Beckham to likely be selected on one of the draft's first two days.
