In what was expected to be a sluggish 2022 NFL Draft for LSU, things picked up speed pretty quickly for the Tigers on Day 2. By removing three more former Bayou Bengals from the roster Friday night, the NFLSU continues to make a statement.
Most expected a big gap from when Derek Stingley Jr. was selected third overall until LSU’s next player heard his name, but that surely wasn’t the case once. the second round started.
Here’s a recap of Day 2 for the Tigers:
Ed Ingram (offensive line) – Vikings (No. 59 overall)
The Minnesota Vikings selected Ed Ingram in the second round with the 59th overall pick on Friday night. A versatile offensive lineman who can immediately step in and make an impact, Ingram will reunite with 2019 National Championship teammate Justin Jefferson.
“We loved him…he’s very explosive and can get guys off the ball on an iso block, which is really hard to do,” the Vikings said of Ingram. best guards out there…”
It may have come as a bit of a surprise that Ingram was selected so early, but the seasoned lineman who has considerable experience against high-caliber SEC talent, Ingram has the chance to be a force first. day for the Vikings.

Cordale Flott (Cornerback) – Giants (No. 81 overall)
After a successful pre-draft visit, the New York Giants clearly liked what they saw from Flott and what he can bring to this growing franchise. Taken in the third round with the 81st overall pick, Flott’s potential is what the Giants saw in the former Tiger.
With a myriad of elite selections in the 2022 NFL Draft, Flott joins a positive class for the Giants. A player who has tremendous length at cornerback and thrives using his physique in coverage, Flott’s dedication in the weight room is what will give him a chance to be special at the next level.
Like Ingram, some were surprised to see Flott taken so early, but with extreme upside and the starting experience under his belt in a loaded SEC, the Giants were clearly willing to take the risk on someone who can be a locking corner to the next level. .
Tyrion Davis-Price (Running Back) – 49ers (No. 93 overall)
In one of the more unexpected Day 2 selections, the San Francisco 49ers selected Davis-Price with the 93rd pick on Friday night. An attack that has its fair share of talented backs, taking Davis-Price in the third round was surprising, but surely a choice that can pay off.
Davis-Price is an elite runner from north to south, especially after contact. Bouncing off defenders and showing off his 4.48 speed once in the open, he can complement their savvy backfield well this coming season.
After selecting former Ohio State running back Trey Sermon in the third round of last year’s draft, it’s a bit alarming that they went with a power back on Friday night, but the potential Davis achieved -Price gives the 49ers another talented runner who can come in and make an early impact.
