With LSU spring practice winding down, a projected August two-deep depth chart _lowres

 

LSU heads into the spring game Saturday with fewer questions – and position battles – than normal.

The Tigers return 18 of 22 starters. They lose their starting two tackles (Vadal Alexander and Jerald Hawkins), their starting weak-side linebacker (Deion Jones) and starting nickel/safety (Jalen Mills).

After a 14-practice spring, many of those spots seem solidified. Maea Teuhema is a guy coaches hope can lock down left tackle, and Toby Weathersby and K.J. Malone seem to be in a fight at right tackle. Donte Jackson is LSU’s nickel, secondary coach Corey Raymond said this spring, and Duke Riley appears to be the favorite to replace Jones.

Here’s our projected depth chart if LSU were playing the season opener this Saturday – with injured players marked.
