Move Chase to the slot WR
If Marshall, McMath, and Chase are your top 3 WRs, it would make sense to move Chase to the slot. He is the most shifty of the three WRs above. Maybe not all of the time but it would also allow him to move around a bit more and defenses would have a harder time keying on him. Thoughts?

He can play anywhere. But he won the Bilitnikoff where he was.

If you watch the spring game from 2019, McMath regularly lines up outside. And Chase played inside several games and in most formations when we were bunched.

re: Move Chase to the slot WR
Considering the slot primarily ran option routs last year (jets) and Chase dominated 1 on 1s consistantly... why in the world would you want to frick that up??

You should have opened with an emphasis on this. It's why you were downvoted.

The reality is he will line up all over in order to exploit mismatches and minimize a team's ability to double him.

I trust his decisions.

Go back and search my comments on Steve and I have never said a bad word about him.

I hope LSU repeats...for him. Everyone wanted to give Joe Brady credit...but I can assure you...Joe Brady learned more from SE than he learned from JB.

re: Move Chase to the slot WR
Marshall would be a big target playing slot. Big match cup for a nickel or a line backer.

Not to mention no safety help since they will be doubling chase.

That would leave Gilbert in the TE creating another mismatch. Most likely having mcmath’s speed on the out here outside.

Realistically any of the 4 could play either WR position and be damaging to a defense.

Chill with these dumbass comments.

You are on a message board to discuss things. Stop policing people’s ideas, however dumb they are

We ran some plays with Moss in the slot, if the offensive strategy stays the same Gilbert will be all over and some in the slot would terrorize opponents. He is going to be a mismatch with pretty much anyone in the opponent's backfield. Geaux Tigers.

re: Move Chase to the slot WR
He’s going to get a lot of production out of the slot (much like what the Saints do with Mike Thomas). LSU didn’t have to do it last season because Jefferson was so good there, but this year:

A. LSU can get better matchups for Chase in the slot, and

B. McMath’s physicality could be a big advantage outside.

Chase will probably line up in the slot only 25%-30% of the time. But I bet 40-50% of his overall production comes from there
