with its first day of spring practice starting Saturday — it’s as good a time as any to project what the Tigers’ two-deep will look like when they open the 2020 season Sept. 5 against UT-San Antonio.
The key word is project here, since LSU has eight total returning starters 4 offense, 4 defense from its 15-0, national championship season, and lot of spots can shuffle, especially since the Tigers will be changing to a 4-3 defensive scheme under new defensive coordinator Bo Pelini.
But hey, making educated guesses is part of the fun of spring football. So we’ll start with offense first, a unit that set numerous records in 2019 with Heisman Trophy winner Joe Burrow an all-time player. That LSU will have to replace, along with four starting offensive linemen. The school’s single-season leader in catches, Justin Jefferson.
