LSU senior S Jalen Mills has "established himself as a premier free safety," notes Sports on Earth's Matt Brown.

"The trio of Mills, Jamal Adams and Tre'Davious White gives LSU yet another loaded secondary, one that will make life difficult for the inexperienced quarterbacks of the SEC," Brown wrote. The analyst ranked Mills as the No. 98 player in the country. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Mills has started all 38 games during his college career and has the versatility to also play corner. He recorded 62 stops in 2014.

LSU sophomore RB Leonard Fournette boasts a "special combination of power, speed, and change-of-direction ability," writes NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Fournette led the Tigers with 1,034 rushing yards last year despite splitting carries, adding 10 touchdowns. He also had 625 yards and a touchdown on kick returns (1,786 all-purpose yards). Fournette is a legitimate Heisman candidate.

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown advises readers to "expect" LSU sophomore S Jamal Adams "to become a star, the type of player capable of making game-changing plays that we've come to expect from the best LSU defenses."

The 6-foot, 206-pounder had 66 tackles, five tackles for loss and five pass breakups last year. "The five-star recruit started only two games in a deep secondary, but he's now the unquestioned starter at strong safety, a position that will allow him to do a bit everything," Brown wrote. "He's an aggressive, athletic defensive back who had 66 tackles last season, and he's already embracing a leadership role on a rising LSU defense, even as just a sophomore." Adams excels both in the box and deep in coverage. He'll be playing in the NFL soon enough.

LSU freshman RB Derrius Guice has returned to the team following a health scare.

Guice passed out at the team's facility and spent some time at the hospital but is now "fully healthy," according to head coach Les Miles. LSU is extremely young at running back, with Leonard Fournette leading the way.

Sophomore Brandon Harris could be passing junior Anthony Jennings as LSU's No. 1 QB.

Jennings is currently on suspension, but head coach Les Miles seemed very optimistic he will return. Harris started one game last season but played in a couple of others, completing 25 of 45 attempts, including two interceptions, six touchdowns and 452 yards. Jennings' high school coach implored him to transfer following the season, but Harris stuck around and might be rewarded for it.

LSU senior S Jalen Mills has the "frame and fluidity of a coveted cornerback, which he could be at the next level," writes ESPN's Mel Kiper.

The NFL might prefer to evaluate Mills as a corner, but that's not going to happen, as LSU moved Mills to safety in 2014. "So while safety might not even be his best position ultimately, at least you're getting the versatility," Kiper wrote. The 6-foot-1, 194-pound Mills has started all 38 games during his college career and recorded 62 stops in 2014. Kiper pegs Mills as the No. 4 senior safety prospect in the nation.

LSU HC Les Miles told the media that the school has had at least one defensive lineman taken in the draft in 12 consecutive years.

Incredibly, the Mad Hatter's statistic is true. By the numbers: Marquise Hill and Chad Lavalais (2004), Marcus Spears (2005), Kyle Williams, Melvin Oliver and Claude Wroten (2006), Chase Pittman (2007), Glenn Dorsey (2008), Tyson Jackson and Ricky Jean-Francois (2009), Al Woods (2010), Drake Nevis and Lazarius Levingston (2011), Michael Brockers (2012), Barkevious Mingo, Bennie Logan, Sam Montgomery and Lavar Edwards (2013), Ego Ferguson (2014) and Danielle Hunter (2015). Not that Miles needed any help recruiting DL to the bayou, but that list of names is one heck of a sales pitch.

LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander's "natural bulk and quickness make him a force in the run game and solid in pass protection," according to NFL Media draft analyst Chad Reuter.

Alexander will slide to right tackle this fall after playing LG the past two seasons. He's been working hard this summer to get ready for the change. The 6-foot-6, 320-pounder has "dropped 15 pounds" and is "working to get quicker feet and improve footwork," Senior Bowl Scout Patrick Woo recently reported.

LSU sophomore RB Leonard Fournette believes college player should not be able to enter the NFL draft after their sophomore year.

In other words, Fournette likes the system that is currently in place with players waiting three years after high school. The reasoning? Fournette says college players "may be physically but not mentally ready." The LSU running back should be the focal point of the offense this season and will have to wait until the 2017 draft to be selected.

Senior Bowl Scout Patrick Woo notes that LSU senior G/T Vadal Alexander has "dropped 15 pounds" and is "working to get quicker feet and improve footwork."

The LSU prospect is sliding back outside to right tackle for the Tigers this season. The 6-foot-6, 320-pounder spent the last two seasons playing inside at left guard. Alexander started his career at right tackle, where he earned Freshman All-American honors.

LSU head coach Les Miles is confident junior QB Anthony Jennings will return to the team.

Jennings was arrested and charged with unauthorized entry of an inhabited dwelling back in mid-June and was suspended indefinitely in an incident two other players were involved in. Jennings was expected to start for LSU this season, or was at the very least leading the competition with Brandon hHrris.

LSU redshirt junior WR Travin Dural was named to the 2015 Biletnikoff Award Watch List, given to college football's most outstanding receiver.

The 6-foot-2, 192-pound Dural was LSU's leading receiver, recording 37 receptions for 758 yards and seven touchdowns in 2014. The Tiger's deep-threat weapon is one the team's fastest players, and is able to run a sub-4.4 40-yard dash.
Jul 15 - 3:01 PM

ESPN's Mel Kiper ranks LSU junior CB TreDavious White as the 4 underclassmen cornerback prospect in the nation.

"Already has 24 starts in two seasons at LSU, which is saying something when you realize the kind of talent the Tigers have churned out on defense," Kiper wrote. "An explosive mover, he covers well but can track you quickly if you get a step, and he's dangerous in the return game as well, so the ball skills are there." The 5-foot-11, 191-pound White has made 24 consecutive starts at cornerback for the Tigers and finished the 2014 season with 33 tackles, six pass breakups and two interceptions.
Jul 13 - 10:45 PM

Sports on Earth's Matt Brown believes LSU has one of "the best groups of young receivers in the country."

The analyst sees redshirt junior WR Travin Dural as a top-25 wide receiver in the country and Dural is flanked by stud sophomores Malachi Dupre, Trey Quinn and John Diarse. "They just didn't get to do a whole lot [last year], with LSU completing only 138 passes (120th nationally) all season," Brown wrote. "The 6-foot-2, 192-pound Dural is a good fit for what the offense wants to do with a mix of power running and downfield passing." Indeed, despite a terrible passing game last year, Dural had 37 catches for 758 yards (20.5 yards per catch) and seven touchdowns. "Much of that production came in the first half of the season, though, as he struggled down the stretch in SEC play. He's going to need some help from his quarterbacks," Brown wrote.
