[quote]Jalen Collins is projected as a mid 1st round pick. Coming out of high school, he was rated a 3 star and only got offers from 3 schools. LSU, Ole Miss and Memphis. So much for the star ratings[/quote]

I hope he isn't to set on the little DT's. (finally got rid of the guy who was in love with little LB's). Would be good to have one starting DT in that 325-350 range (Valentine), then maybe one small DT in that 290-310 range. ...

You should take a look at the recruits they have signed lately on defense. Chavis will have plenty of talent to work with on defense over there. Also if it was a culture focus...

AT TAM his defense won't have to carry the team like it did at LSU. With a prolific offense to work a long with, his defense wont be under as much 'unnecessary strain'. Stats will suffer, but he is not talking about stats. 15 pages arguing that? :lol:...

He's not talking about stats. Sure his defenses will have worse stats at TAM than at LSU, but, from his point of view, so what. Seems he felt to much was placed on his defense to win games. Didn't get much help from the offense at LSU. Hard to disagree with that. Sure, slowing down the game and TOP...

the problems with this recieving core go much farther than just drops. They had trouble getting off the line an getting any sort of separation all season. Though they be great on paper, in actual play they were the worst group ever at LSU. They had as bad a season as the QB's and contributed to thei...

"if your going to get a higher percentage of completions for your QB's your going to have to get easier throws for your QB's. You obviously need to make a change by making improvements to your scheme and excecution"
that in itself gives me hope for a much improved offense next season. At least t...

Miles has proven over and over again that he will go with the younger player over seniority once that player PROVES himself. He did it with White and Robinson over Collins and Mills at CB recently, as well as Beckwith over Welter, and Jefferson over Lee. No reason to believe he won't go with Harris ...

Nevertheless, as slow as I was, I was able to continue playing in college at D2 level. 2 years later playing weight of 255, I ran a 5.01. So I can say by experience putting on more weight, will slow you down.[...

I watched him a good bit last season and I thought he played very well. I know a lot of you disagree but IMO he was our best corner last season. He made great improvement from the 2013 to 2014 season and looked like a different player on the field. He'll be a good NFL CB. ...
