Coach O's Depth Chart: Defensive [Image]
Image: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49991172398_7e9d416e4e_b.jpg

This is the list of names that Coach O gave for his Depth Chart during his interviews on Off the Bench over the last several Tuesdays. Yesterday, he talked about the Linebackers. Begin listening at the 3:30 mark.

Things that Are Unclear to Me:
• He did not make clear distinctions about the Safties: who will play Free, who will play Strong, or who will play "up close." By contrast, he was very specific about the two Corner positions, and he even mentioned Cordale Flott and Kary Vincent as the top candidates to play there.
• He did not make clear distinctions about the "Stack" Linebackers other than to list Clark, Brooks, and Sampah at "Mike." I interpreted the non-Mike Linebackers within the "Stack" group to be at the "Will" position. Nothing was said about the Outside Linebacker position. This is not abnormal, since he indicated that LSU would be playing from the Nickel (4-2-5) formation 75% of the time.

Interesting Tidbits:
• The most interesting note had to be that Marcel Brooks was listed as the #2 Mike Linebacker. So much for the idea that Brooks might move to Safety. CEO reiterated that Brooks was one of the most talented athletes on the field.
• The media believe that Jabril Cox will take over the starting spot at Will. Coach O, however, seems to be taking a "You have to prove it" stance. Therefore, he lists Baskerville as the starter. Notably, last week CEO corrected the hosts twice to say that Elias Ricks would likely start over Cordale Flott at Corner.
• CEO listed Devonta Lee last, stating that they were "still trying to find a place for him." This place, it seems, will be similar to how Jacoby Stevens plays up close to the line.
Ray Parker was not mentioned when O discussed the Defensive Linemen. I don't know exactly what that means, but yesterday O even mentioned 3 walk-ons at the Linebacker position.

Other Notes:
• Numbers to the right of each player indicate an objective formula based upon each player's incoming 247sports Composite score + experience and awards.
• As for previously injured players, I don't know what status is now that they have returned from the extended break.

Did O say Ricks over Flott? I doubt that

Twice, whenever the hosts mentioned Cordale Flott as the other starter at Cornerback, Coach O corrected them and mentioned Elias Ricks. Go watch the interview for yourself.

Do you guys not read the thread before commenting? Even the title says "Coach O's depth chart". He's not going to put Cox ahead of Baskerville having NEVER seen Cox even practice in person.

Of course Cox will more than likely start game 1. But a coach can't publicly give it to a transfer over a guy that's been here for a few years. He did the same thing with Burrow in 2018. Remember that "competition" with Brennan in the fall?

O went thru the depth chart a few weeks ago and Cox was ahead.


What O said yesterday had nothing to do with the depth chart.

Unrelated but the DE/OLB haul of Ojulari and Webb is just stupid.

The Great O has lived up to his recruiting rep.

Three years ago we hardly had enough quality linemen to fill a roster.

It's okay to try sometimes, even with punctuation.

I would swap Marcel Brooks and M.Baskerville. I don’t think Brooks will play the true MLB position but I think both Clark and Baskerville do.

D.Clark > M.Baskerville based on playing time toward the end of last season.

Also, M. Brooks > M.Baskerville based on situational 3rd down defense and the ability to rush the passer.

In Nickel, which I think we would be playing more than anything, I think one if them would be on the field but not both at the same time. D.Clark and M.Brooks would be the best pairing for Nickel

Orgeron every offseason talks up true freshmen more than returning players. It’s his obsession with recruiting. We’ll see if Ricks is truly better than Flott, but he’s always done this and will do it more when camp starts in August. He loves to talk about true freshmen during camp.
