Barkevious Mingo, Sam Montgomery and Bennie Logan leaving LSU for 2013 NFL Draft

Wesley Hitt

The trio of Tigers led LSU's 12th-best defense in college football and will now move on to the pros. All three are sure to be high on the lists of many NFL teams.

After completing a 10-3 season, members of the LSU Tigers continue to leave for the 2013 NFL Draft, as defensive ends Barkevious Mingo and Sam Montgomery and defensive tackle Bennie Logan will all declare for the draft together, according to ESPN's Joe Schad.

Montgomery and Mingo rank Nos. 17 and 19, respectively, on SB Nation's NFL Draft Big Board, so they figure to be picked fairly early. Logan, meanwhile, is ranked as the 11th-best defensive tackle in this year's draft class. He started 12 out of LSU's 13 games and finished with 45 total tackles.

Mingo is also listed as the second-best outside linebacker in the class behind only Jarvis Jones from Georgia. Montgomery is the fourth-best defensive end on the board and finished the season with 37 tackles, 18 of them solo. Mingo had 38 tackles and 21 were solo.

SB Nation's Mocking the Draft projects Montgomery to go No. 10 to the Tennessee Titans and Mingo 19th to the New York Giants.
