LSU linebacker Patrick Queen has declared for the 2020 NFL Draft.

The junior from Livonia made the announcement on his Twitter account fresh off of an MVP performance in the College Football Playoff National Championship Game.

Queen said Tuesday he wasn’t sure if he would make the leap to the NFL and that that he needed to discuss the decision.

“I’m not really sure yet,” he said Tuesday. “Got to go home and talk to my parents and Coach O, do everything the right way. But LSU is always going to be capable of doing what we did this year. We've got great players, great coaches. As long as we believe in each other, we'll be able to accomplish anything.”

Queen likely must have had those discussions and decided to declare.

The standout posted 85 tackles including 12 for a loss this season to go along with three sacks and an interception. 

Queen was the second LSU underclassman to declare for the draft as Tigers safety Grant Delpit declared Wednesday as well.
