LSU head coach Ed Orgeron inspires players as they work in drills on the first day of Football Spring Training Sunday at the LSU football practice complex.

LSU is six practices into spring. We probably haven't seen enough in practice to create a real depth chart, but let's give it a crack anyway.

Please note that this depth chart is based off interviews with coach Ed Orgeron, players and limited practice observations. This depth chart is NOT a projection of the team's depth chart for the season opener against Miami - it is a projection of a CURRENT depth chart if the Tigers were playing a game this weekend.

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.

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.
