LSU had a mass exodus to the NFL after 2012 when 10 players declared for the draft after the season. A lot of that talent was on the defensive side of the ball, and this spring will be a proving ground for the rising talent on roster.
This is a breakdown of the expected depth chart for the Tigers heading into the spring.
Even in positions with clear-cut leaders there will be battles for playing time. The roster is too talented not to have open competition.
There will be shifts along the depth chart throughout the 15 practices of spring, but in the end this lineup should be the one that takes the field for the Tigers in August.
