Looking forward to seeing who will end up starting at the LB positions.


Lamin Barrow for sure starter IMO. Kwon and Debo are raw, and should gain some weight this offseason. Tahj Jones is good, but he can't seem to gain weight lol, he has been the same weight since he's got to LSU. Then there's Fiest that could play MLB. And Beckwith if he plays linebacker. Also Lamar Louis is solid. And Melvin Jones coming in is a big dude. The depth at Linebacker is something I think LSU hasn't had in a while.

Who you guys got starting?

The 3 starters will be some combo of Tahj Jones, Kwon, Barrow, and Feist.

I thought Lamar Louis disappeared too much, but he did get some nice PT in some games this year.

I agree with you, I didn't see Louis doing much but he did get a lot of PT.

OLB - Kwon Alexander
MLB - Lamin Barrow
OLB - Tahj Jones/Debo Jones

i think it's safe to lock Kwon into one of the starting spots

Debo is going to be very special once he locks down that starting spot.

I would rather Kwon step into the MLB as he looked good filling in for Minter. Barrow is in a great spot and does very good at OLB. Tahj Jones at the other OLB.

I thought Kwon played OLB? I know he played OLB vs UF.

Yea, Debo is gonna be awesome. We actually have some depth at LB right now.

I think Debo is the most athletic and fastest linebacker on the team. If he gains 10 to 15 pounds this offseason he is going to be beast.

re: Looking forward to seeing who will end up starting at the LB positions.


if no one switches positions, I think this is your 2 deep to start spring:

Mike - Welter/ Feist
Will - Barrow/ Debo
Sam - Tahj/ Kwon

a lot of us think Barrow might move to Mike, so that'd move Debo up (or possibly Kwon over to Will). lotta possibilities, it'll be interesting to see.

he only got mop up duty this year. He's gonna have to wait before getting serious PT. We have some experienced depth at LB now.

I can't see that. Barrow will play MLB. Not a guy that has only played a few snaps
