Lloyd Cushenberry (No. 79) performed well enough in spring to have LSU coaches talking about a potential plan to move Will Clapp to guard.


LSU completed its fifth practice of a 15-practice spring on Tuesday. 

Reporters have been allowed to watch 20-30 minutes of each practice, excluding Saturday's drills in Tiger Stadium, a day in which the Tigers scrimmaged.

The portion of practices open to the media are individual drills only. Not much can be gleaned from this, but a pecking order at each position does reveal itself.

So, 23 weeks before the Tigers kick off against BYU, we project a depth chart. 

This one has plenty of footnotes, as several players are currently injured and/or not participating in spring. This depth chart is assuming these injured players ARE available.

LSU quarterback Danny Etling fields questions during player interviews, Tuesday, March 14, 2017, at LSU's football operations facility in Baton Rouge, La.

This depth chart assumes that all of the players currently running with the starters will maintain their starting positions (though we know that's not likely to happen).

We purposely listed every single current scholarship player on this depth chart — all ~64 of them (excluding specialists). The true freshmen arriving over summer are listed under each position.
