Thomas B. Shea-USA TODAY Sports
Athlon Sports ranked LSU as the No. 1 defensive backfield in College Football for 2016. Here is what they had to say about the Tigers.

1. LSU: The Tigers were expected to boast a standout secondary in 2015 but finished 51st nationally in pass efficiency defense. There’s too much talent to expect a repeat in 2016. Cornerback Tre’Davious White and safety Jamal Adams are two All-America candidates for new coordinator Dave Aranda. White is also expected to slide into the nickel back at times, with Donte Jackson projected to work as his top backup. Ed Paris and Kevin Toliver are battling for snaps at the other corner spot. The Tigers also inked two of the nation's top prospects at cornerback in Kristian Fulton and Saivion Smith. Rickey Jefferson and Dwayne Thomas join Adams as key contributors at safety.
Top 10:
1. LSU
2. Alabama
3. Washington
4. Michigan
5. Florida
6. Florida State
8. Oklahoma
9. Iowa
10. Georgia
