LSU LT La'El Collins has been invited to the Senior Bowl.

Collins' evaluation is reportedly "all over the board," according to draft insider Tony Pauline. We are huge fans of Collins because of his use of length, functional strength and assertiveness. However, there are a handful of very poor plays, and some will focus on those as the foundation of his report.

Jim Kleinpeter reports that head coach Les Miles notes that he is 'not certain if senior C Elliott Porter will be back for a bowl game."

The 6-foot-4, 297-pound Porter injured his right ankle during last week’s 17-0 loss at Arkansas. It looks like the LSU prospect could be doubtful for the Tigers’ season finale against Texas A&M as well. In Porter's absence, LSU will use starting right guard Ethan Pocic to replace Porter him versus the Aggies.

LSU senior RB Kenny Hilliard has committed to playing in the East-West Shrine game.

It was previously reported Hilliard would miss the remainder of the regular season with a shoulder injury, and obviously his status for this all star game hinges on his health. He has rushed for 431 yards and six touchdowns on 87 carries this season.

LSU true freshman RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 9 yards on five carries in Saturday's 17-0 loss to Arkansas.

So far as we know, Fournette's not suffering from an injury. The freshman has had your typical youngster ups-and-downs this season, with this counting as a definitive down. Fournette had rushed for 182 yards in his previous two contests, but did nothing and had almost no chance to do anything as LSU slowly had its will drained. The entire team would be best to forget November 15, 2014. Fournette's still supremely talented and the youngster has a bright future ahead of him.

LSU senior RB Terrence Magee carried the ball seven times for 24 yards in Saturday's 17-0 loss to Arkansas.

LSU, in general, looked pretty dead in this one. Magee added to the funereal atmosphere by leading the team in rushing with 24 yards. The Tigers were already down Kenny Hilliard, who will miss the rest of the season with a shoulder injury. Despite what this abysmal game would have you believe, Magee has put up a decent season for a backup running back. He's averaging 5.4 YPC and has run for 471 yards on 88 carries despite almost never starting. Coming into the season, CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that several people around the NFL counted Magee as one of the top-three seniors at his position. We haven't heard much word on him since the 2014 campaign started, though.

LSU beat writer Jim Kleinpeter cites sources close to the program saying senior RB Kenny Hilliard will miss the remainder of the season due to a shoulder injury.

Hilliard could return for the school's bowl game. Prior to the injury, Hilliard had rushed for 431 yards and six touchdowns on 87 carries this season. Expect to see even more Leonard Fournette moving forward.
Nov 15 - 10:30 AM

New Orleans Times-Picayune LSU senior RB Kenny Hilliard will miss the Tigers' final three games with a shoulder injury and is out for the season.

The 6-foot, 232-pound Hilliard, suffered a shoulder injury against the Crimson Tide and was forced to leave the game after rushing three times for 15 yards. The LSU prospect finishes the year with 431 yards and six touchdowns on 87 carries. At the moment, Hilliard is currently LSU's third leading rusher.
Nov 14 - 3:15 PM

ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. has LSU senior LT La'el Collins ranked as his No.21 overall player on his Big Board.

"A definite first-round talent now, he's another player you could see drafted and moved inside to guard if a team wants to get him on the field right away," Kiper wrote. The 6-foot-5, 321-pound Collins has played a team-high 576 snaps for the Tigers this year. Collins has recorded a team-high 64.5 knockdown blocks this season, and has started in all 10 games, with 35 starts in 42 games in his career as a Tiger. Kiper has the LSU prospect rated as the fourth best tackle following Texas A&M's Cedric Ogbuehi, Iowa's Brandon Scherff and Stanford's Andrus Peat.

LSU senior TE Logan Stokes reportedly received death threats for pulling down the pants of Alabama linebacker Richie Ragland in a scrum on Saturday.

Stokes and Ragland were both in a pile of players. "When I pulled them off, I just yanked them back. He wasn't wearing a belt so when I yanked his pants came down," said Stokes. The senior claimed he had not done it intentionally, but he's deleted his Twitter account on account of the Internet threatening him. The incident went viral in a Vine after Saturday night's game.

According to LSU HC Les Miles, freshman CB Rashard Robinson wouldn't play "in the short term."

Robinson was suspended after violating team rules. The suspension was announced just prior to the team's game with Alabama. The freshman had started the previous six games for the Tigers. "There's a responsibility he has to this team that has been forgone," said Miles. A four-star recruit, Robinson exits into his indefinite suspension with 17 tackles and one pass breakup.
Nov 11 - 7:34 PM

LSU freshman WR Trey Quinn's drops against Alabama "surprised" HC Les Miles.

"We had some of our best receivers, I mean maybe the most talented ball-skill guys, drop balls," said the Mad Hatter. This season, Quinn has caught 16 balls for 190 yards. He had two crucial drops against Alabama. "I would bet you that that wouldn't happen again like that for a long time," the coach said. Quinn hasn't offered huge production to this point, so it's possible that he was feeling the spotlight a little bit. The freshman was the No. 3 receiver in the 2014 recruiting class and is known for having sure hands.

TFY Draft Insider Tony Pauline wrote that LSU senior LT La'el Collins was "all over draft boards."

"Some teams stamp Collins as a first round tackle while others believe he grades as a second round guard," wrote Pauline. Collins is one of LSU's team leaders on a very young offense, but he does have a tendency to be over-aggressive at times, which defenders will take advantage of on the next level. Pauline has Collins rated as his No. 1 tackle, though, and sees him as worthy of a first-round pick.
Nov 10 - 4:26 PM

LSU freshman CB Rashard Robinson has been suspended indefinitely for a violation of team rules.

He had started the previous six games while sharing time with Jalen Collins. Robinson's eligibility was delayed last year after working through the NCAA, but despite the late start he was able to contribute on the field.
Nov 10 - 9:18 AM

LSU true freshman RB Leonard Fournette rushed for 79 yards on 21 carries in Saturday's 20-13 loss to Alabama.

Fournette was able to continuously pound out hard yards against an Alabama defense that had allowed just 78 YPG on the ground coming into Saturday. This season, Fournette's rushed for 736 yards and seven touchdowns. For a freshman with as much hype as Fournette, it's a good sign that he's continuing to grind out games without getting frustrated.
Nov 9 - 7:58 PM

CBS Sports' Eric Kay wrote that LSU junior DE Danielle Hunter used his "lateral ability and balance" to disrupt Alabama's offense on Saturday.

Hunter repeatedly beat Alabama freshman tackle Cam Robinson in the contest and was able to deflect several passes. Hunter also made his presence known in run defense. As Kay observed, "Hunter's quickness allows him to dip under would-be blockers, beating them inside rather than relying on his length and strength to string run plays out wide, as tackles expect. He's aggressive and physical, showing a willingness to sacrifice his body uncommon for edge players with his body type." This season, Hunter has accumulated 55 tackles, 10.5 of which have gone for a loss. His talent goes beyond his sub-par sack total (1.5).
