LSU junior S Jalen Mills "should be set for a stronger senior season as he's grown more comfortable at safety," according to Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

The draft analyst ranks Mills as the No. 10 safety in the country. "Mills has had a tumultuous career, with NFL hype marred by last summer's battery charge," Brown wrote. "He somewhat surprisingly returned for his senior year, with 39 career starts under his belt, first at cornerback and now at safety." The 6-foot, 194-pound Mills posted 62 tackles, five pass breakups and an interception last year.

LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander "is best-suited inside on the next level," believes NFL Media draft analyst Lance Zierlein.

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander is moving back to RT -- the position at which he was a Freshman All-American -- this fall after spending the past two campaigns at LG. Nevertheless, Zierlein included him with interior lineman in his rankings, grading him as the fourth-best in the country. "Despite his massive frame, Alexander is better than expected at locating and successfully engaging targets on the second level," Zierlein wrote. "At the point of attack, Alexander has proven to be too much for many an SEC defensive tackle. Alexander can be a bit of a lunger at times and does too much waist-bending, but the positives far outshine the negatives for this big guy."

LSU coach Les Miles dismissed redshirt freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao due to his recent arrest.

Lealaimatafao allegedly hit a woman outside a bar when she attempted to stop him from robbing her unconscious boyfriend. After getting arrested, Miles suspended Lealaimatafao. Since then, his staff has "gathered more information and feel it's best for us to part ways." Lealaimatafao, a San Antonio native and former four-star recruit, should draw some interest on the transfer circuit.

In 2014, LSU sophomore RB Leonard Fournette "barely scratched the surface of what he's capable of considering his rare combination of size, strength and speed," observes NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette, the top recruit in 2014, led the Tigers with 1,034 rushing yards last year despite splitting carries. "Reports from LSU indicate we should look for a lighter and quicker Fournette, which should benefit him as he must learn to be more creative and elusive within the first three yards of the line of scrimmage in order to maximize those special traits and hit more big plays," Zierlein wrote. "I'm expecting a big jump forward in 2015." The analyst ranks Fournette as the No. 6 runner in the country.

LSU junior DB Jalen Mills boasts "strength as a tackler and the hands to create turnovers consistently," notes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

The analyst believes Mills will be one of the top-40 seniors taken in the 2016 draft regardless of whether the NFL projects him at corner or as a cover safety. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Mills has started all 38 games during his college career and recorded 62 stops in 2014.

Former Purdue junior QB Danny Etling transferred to LSU.

Tigers OC Cam Cameron attended the same high school as Etling, which may have helped the Tigers' cause. The signal-caller elected to leave Purdue after losing his job midseason last year to Austin Appleby. The former four-star recruit threw for almost 2,500 yards with a 13/12 TD/INT ratio in 13 games for the Boilermakers. Etling must sit out this season due to NCAA transfer guidelines. He will have two seasons eligibility remaining starting in 2016.

LSU junior ILB Kendell Beckwith brings "a combination of size (245 pounds) and explosiveness to the middle of the defense," writes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

Beckwith started the final seven games in 2014 and will be a full-time starter in 2015 with Kwon Alexander in the NFL. In part-time action over the past two years, he's logged 88 tackles, 8.5 TFL and 3 sacks. Brown pegs Beckwith as the No. 12 LB in the nation.

LSU freshman defensive end Arden Key and JUCO transfer defensive back Jeremy Cutrer are not enrolled in summer classes.

A terrible day for LSU -- four football players were arrested Thursday -- is followed by more discouraging news. Key, the No. 24 recruit in the ESPN 300, is one of the best incoming edge rushers in the nation. Cutrer, meanwhile, comes from Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College. Cutrer is expected to enroll in classes later this summer, but we haven't been apprised of Key's intentions.

LSU redshirt junior DB Dwayne Thomas and DL Maquedius Bain were arrested along with QB Anthony Jennings for unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling.

Thomas and Bain joined Jennings and the three said they were retrieving items stolen from the quarterback. Their entry was forceful and they were subsequently arrested and suspended. Thomas is working back from a knee injury after seeing nickel back duties for LSU.

LSU redshirt freshman DT Trey Lealaimatafao was arrested for simple battery and simple assault.

The details of the bar fight are harrowing. Lealaimatafao is charged with beating another man unconscious followed by hitting the male victim’s girlfriend with a closed fist when she interfered his attempt to dig through the man's pockets. The defensive tackle suffered a "serious arm injury" last summer after punching a window in the school's weight room.

LSU junior QB Anthony Jennings was arrested and charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling and has been indefinitely suspended.

Two other players were involved in the incident. Apparently the three claim they were retrieving items that were previously stolen from Jennings and taken to a West Campus apartment. Jennings was the team's starting quarterback last season and was competing with sophomore Brandon Harris for the starting job this offseason. If the charges stand, expect Jennings to miss game action.

ESPN.com's Greg Ostendorf believes there's an opportunity for LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander "to go from being a counterpart to being the star," with La'el Collins off to the NFL.

"Now that Collins is gone, there's an opportunity to go from being a counterpart to being the star. For Alexander, that starts with moving back to right tackle, the same position that he played as a freshman at LSU, and the position that should help him earn more money at next year's NFL draft," Ostendorf wrote. The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander is now the most experienced player along LSU's offensive line. The LSU prospect has played in 38 games with 34 starts under his belt. Alexander will be the anchor for the Tigers' line this season and he'll have a great opportunity to improve on his draft stock playing on the outside.

LSU sophomore LB Clifton Garrett will transfer prior to the 2015 season.

Garrett was considered a four or five star recruit out of high school but did not make an impact during his first season with the Tigers. Justin Hopkins of 247 Sports says Garrett will transfer to the JUCO ranks, which usually means some kind of outside of football reason led to the departure. LSU lost another linebacker to the NFL this offseason.

Purdue junior QB Danny Etling will transfer to another program and has been released from his scholarship.

A little less than a year ago, Etling was named the school's top quarterback after starting the final seven games of 2013. Then Etling struggled in the first five games and missed the final seven, with Purdue finishing on a six game losing streak. If Etling transfers to another FBS program he will need to sit out a season.

NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter calls LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander a top-20 draft prospect.

The 6-foot-6, 320-pound Alexander will move back to RT -- the position at which he was a Freshman All-American -- after spending the past two campaigns at LG. "Alexander has shed at least 30 pounds since arriving on campus, giving him a shot to stay at tackle when he arrives in the NFL," Reuter wrote. "Although it's possible Alexander has done enough to land a first-round slot as a guard with his length, strength, and footwork, success at right tackle this season is crucial for Alexander to earn the respect of general managers across the league as a pass protector on the outside." We're excited to evaluate Alexander at tackle. Reuter is higher on him than most at the moment.
