LSU took another hit in the secondary when junior defensive back Cordale Flott decided to forgo his senior campaign and enter the 2022 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-2, 170-pound cornerback could be as high as a third round pick.

The Saraland, Alabama native played in 35 games with the Tigers, starting 21. He compiled 99 career tackles with 5.5 for losses, 12 passes broken up and an interception.

Flott possesses great length, outstanding range and natural skills as a cover man. With 4.5 speed, he can maintain close proximity with the receiver. This past season, he excelled playing as a slot/nickel corner.

LSU starting cornerbacks Derek Stingley, Jr. (draft) and Eli Ricks (transferred to Alabama) must also be replaced.

Dwight McGlothern, Raydarious Jones and Damarius McGhee return at corner for the Tigers in next season, and Jordan Allen will enter the fray from the 2022 signing class. Nicholls State transfer Pig Cage manned the nickel spot against Kansas State in the Texas Bowl.

The Tigers will likely add an experienced cornerback or two via the transfer portal this offseason, with further additions in the ’22 signing class anticipated.
