With time running out on the NFL's 2008 draft, LSU tight end Keith Zinger was chosen by the Atlanta Falcons in the seventh and final round.

Zinger was the 232nd player chosen over the two-day draft and became the seventh member of the Tigers' 2007 national champions taken in the draft.
The tight end was somewhat of a surprise choice, as more heralded LSU players such as linebacker Ali Highsmith and cornerback Jonathan Zenon remain on the board. Zinger missed all but three games his junior year with a stomach ailment, and was overshadowed last year by the emergence of Richard Dickson at tight end.
On the other hand, at 6-3, 270 pounds he provides the Falcons a bruising presence on the line.
Zinger will be reunited at the professional level with cornerback Chevis Jackson, who was drafted by Atlanta
