NEW YORK -- On Saturday at Radio City Music Hall, LSU All-America defensive tackle Glenn Doresy became the 30th first-round pick in school history when he was selected No. 5 overall by the Kansas City Chiefs in the NFL Draft.

Doresy, the most decorated defensive player in LSU football history, extended to five years a streak of Tigers picked in the first round.

In 2007, four Tigers were taken in the first round including No. 1 pick JaMarcus Russell by the Oakland Raiders. All four -- Russell, LaRon Landry (Washington Redskins), Dwayne Bowe (Chiefs) and Craig Davis (San Diego Chargers) -- became rookie starters.

The seven-round draft continues throughout the afternoon today and continues on Sunday live on ESPN
