LSU's most experienced unit on either side of the football will be at offensive line. Four of the five starters return, headlined by projected first-round pick La'el Collins.
First-year offensive line coach Jeff Grimes has an embarrassment of riches to work with next season. His toughest offseason task will be to name a starting right guard. The battle has been hotly contested between seniors Evan Washington and Hoko Fanaika.
Fanaika started the spring game with the first group while Washington finished with them. Grimes said that is no indication of who will start. Washington filled in at right guard when now-departed Trai Turner went out with an injury against Auburn last season.
The offensive line was good, but not great last season. With a young core on offense, Miles will rely heavily on his big uglies up front to carry the team.
