NFL.com Scout's Take: Cameron Priming LSU Prospects for NFL


I cannot describe how gratifying it is to have a professional coach with a true NFL pedigree guiding this offense. It is evident in everything the offense does and their manner of doing it. My heart sings when I read that we have installed complex, nuanced NFL caliber schemes. I cannot wait to trot into Bryant-Denny for the first time in recent memory with a multi-faceted, balanced offense. Regardless of how the remainder of the season unfolds, the transformation has been nearly miraculous. The juxtaposition between this staff and previous offensive regimes is glaring. I hope that Dupre, Fournette, and other marquee offensive recruits take note: LSU is where you want to enroll if the NFL is your ultimate aim.

Cameron priming LSU prospects for NFL

Cam Cameron is molding LSU's top offensive players into elite NFL prospects. It seems like I highlight an LSU offensive player in my notebook every week, but the Tigers have a loaded lineup that features a number of NFL-ready playmakers at key skill positions. Although the level of offensive talent in Baton Rouge has always been up to NFL standards, the addition of Cameron as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach has quickly transformed some of the Tigers' top skill-position talent into elite prospects in the minds of many NFL evaluators. From the starting quarterback (Zack Mettenberger) to the workhorse running back (Jeremy Hill) to a pair of dynamic pass catchers (Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr.), the Tigers trot out a star-studded lineup that is as pro-ready as they come.

Now, I know that there are several schools capable of making similar claims, but the presence of a former NFL head coach/offensive coordinator sets the Tigers apart. Cameron has installed a pro-style system that features NFL blocking schemes, protection calls and passing concepts, which allows scouts to see the Tigers' top players execute assignments that will be required on the next level. Moreover, scouts get an opportunity to see prospects perform against elite competition and assess how well they are able to assimilate into a system that taxes them mentally (sight adjustments, hot reads and changing protection calls) under pressure. Factor in the benefit of receiving a full season's worth of coaching under the guidance of a longtime NFL offensive mind, and the games of Mettenberger, Hill, Landry and Beckham have appeared far more polished and refined than a season ago. With scouts always looking for players on the ascent, the arrival of Cameron has undoubtedly boosted the draft stocks of the Tigers' talented offensive quartet.

If he stays, the real test for CCC will be next year. I'm not saying he's not all he's cracked up to be, but he was handed a gold mine this year.

And if Stud was still OC the offense would look the same. With this gold mine of talent. Mettenberger didn't just transform into an elite QB by himself. He did it under the reigns of Cam Cameron in one off season.

His footwork, pocket presence, deep balls and everything just looks a million times better. If Cam stays, Anthony Jennings and company will be great under him. He's a proven and tested QB coach.

And hes got Gold growing from the ground in LA

There will always be talent on both sides of the ball in LA, so he has no issue with not having a gold mine

These are the same schemes we have been running that most rantards on here hated. This season we are just executing them better.

re: NFL.com Scout's Take: Cameron Priming LSU Prospects for NFL


It's just hard to argue the development of Cam's QBs. Randle El if not playing at Indiana would have won the Heisman. He was an incredible college player. He had Brees, Rivers, and Flacci in very early years of their development and that have all matured into above-average pros. You can now add Mettenberger into the mix. Heck, Gus Frerotte made the Pro Bowl with Cam as his QB coach.

Cam's disastrous year with the Dolphins, as well as the manner in which his Baltimore tenure ended, makes people question his abilities but one thing that is extremely difficult to argue, and the best argument to young recruits, is his development of players. In addition to the QBs, LaDainian, Antonio Gates, Ray Rice. Even Indiana's Levron Williams led DI in all-purpose yards in 2001.

This has probably already been clipped, professionally reprinted and mailed out to each of LSU's 2014 offensive recruits.

Meh, he had a very good game against Bama and seemed to regress through the end of the year. Not even in the same hemisphere of what we've seen this year.

"Cameron has installed a pro-style system that features NFL blocking schemes, protection calls and passing concepts"

I think it's the reason we have such a small number of holding calls this year.

that features NFL blocking schemes

Can someone please explain how NFL blocking schemes differ from what most college schemes are? I really don't know and am interested in finding out. Thanks.

Maybe so, but according to Mett and other players on offense there were improvements such as NOT RUNNING ONLY 1 PLAY OUT OF A SINGLE FORMATION.....while it's the same, it's also very different.
