LSU practiced in full pads Thursday for the first time this spring. 

Unfortunately, the media's 25-minute viewing window into drills did not include full-speed collisions. But we do have our daily observations below with video:

  • Missing: TE Jamal Pettigrew was the only player noticeably absent during the portion of practice that reporters were allowed to watch. He was out with an injury. No other information was provided. 
  • Still in gold: The three players who have donned limited-contact gold jerseys remained in them Thursday, the Tigers' third spring practice. The list includes DL Christian LaCouture, OL Donavaughn Campbell and FB J.D. Moore. 
  • Star watching: Former LSU safety and potential first-round NFL draft pick Jamal Adams watched some of practice Thursday. 

We spent a good portion of Thursday's drills watching the defensive line rotation. Keep in mind these were individual drills and not full-team portions of practice.

No. 1 group

  • DE Frank Herron
  • NT Greg Gilmore
  • DE Christian LaCouture

No. 2 group

  • DE Glen Logan
  • NT Ed Alexander
  • DE Rashard Lawrence
  • Deondre Clark rotated

Here's what appears to be the pecking order at Buck, the outside linebacker/edge rusher position that Arden Key plays (Key is out, as you probably know):

  • Sci Martin
  • Andre Anthony 
  • Isaiah Washington
