Top Players: Tre'Davious White, Rashard Robinson, Dwayne Thomas, Ronald Martin
Question Marks: Jalen Mills, Corey Thompson, Jalen Collins, Rickey Jefferson
The LSU secondary has the chance to be a special group in 2014.
The Tigers have two top-level corners in Tre'Davious White and Rashard Robinson. If White and Robinson can play man-coverage on the outside with little help from safeties, it will be tough to move the ball through the air against the Tigers.
The battle for who starts at safety will be an interesting one. Junior Jalen Mills is the most talented player of the group, but it remains to be seen if he plays after his recent arrest. That leaves returnees Rickey Jefferson, Ronald Martin and Corey Thompson to fill in two safety slots. Jefferson, Martin and Thompson all have starting experience, but do not be surprised if true freshman Jamal Adams is in the mix.
Dwayne Thomas is the secret weapon of the group. Thomas will be brought in place of a linebacker on long passing downs and is a threat to blitz at any moment.
The secondary will not be as good as the famed 2011 group that had two first-team All Americans. But expect them to be the best set of ball hawks since that historical season.
