you're out of your fricking mind if you think they will lose 2 first round tackles and not miss a beat
First of all we don't know if they will lose either yet, second of all LSU lost a 1st round LT this year and replaced him with a 6 yr Sr with a history of injury that previously played mostly on the interior at G and C. did we "miss a beat" ? I'm sure overall Faulk would have graded out better than Josh D, but the offense total not only did not drop off, but got better and why, because the play of the QB go better. They won't be replacing the T if they both leave with kids from the dorm. They will be fine as long as Manziel plays well.
ETA: The backups to Joeckel and Mathews are: RT Joseph Cheek 6-7 300 RSFr was a 4* on Rivals and Germain Ifedi 6-5 338 a Fr 3*. I think they also have a JUCO guy coming in.
