For every top pick like John Elway, Bruce Smith and Orlando Pace who earn their gold-colored jackets, there are No. 1 selections like Courtney Brown, JaMarcus Russell and Ki-Jana Carter who never live up to the lofty expectations or weren’t the right choice."

Next Saturday, prior to kickoff against Ole Miss, LSU will unveil a statue in honor of the legendary Billy Cannon. Cannon, who is LSU’s lone heisman winner and the only player in program history to have his number retired, played a crucial part in LSU’s 1958 national championship team. Cannon is most recognized for his famous “Halloween Run” against Ole Miss, in which he returned a punt for an 89 yard touchdown. The score would give LSU a 7-3 win over the Rebels. Cannon’s statue will be the only, current, statue of an LSU player/coach in their honor.
