ESPN writer David Ching ranked the SEC front sevens in his preseason position rankings article last week and pegged LSU at No. 6 behind Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and Auburn.

6. LSU: As long as the Tigers avoid major injuries at defensive tackle and linebacker, their defense should be fine. Tackles Christian LaCouture and Davon Godchaux started to jell in the second half of last season and Kendell Beckwith is back to lead a speedy linebacking corps. The Tigers’ edge rush is the concern. With starting ends Danielle Hunter and Jermauria Rasco gone, the Tigers could use a spark from Tashawn Bower, Lewis Neal and freshman Arden Key.

Poor Vanderbilt is pretty much 14th in all of these.

That's fair. Though under the tutelage of O, these guys can be top 3 by the season's end.
