It's almost time. Positions of concern on defense Right End - Oliver & Merrill with Kirston Pittman in there is solid Right Tackle - Williams & Dorsey with Marlon Favorite is solid Left Tackle - Wroten, Brandon Washington, Alexander & Stewart is solid Left End - Who gets the nod here (since West is gone)? Is it Manuel, Willis, Jarrod Carter or Tim Washington or Tyson Jackson. I think Washington will see some PT this fall with Manuel & Willis getting most Outside LB is super solid with Vaughn, Highsmith, Kuale & Hollis Middle LB is concern with Johnson & Maxwell & Sanders looking to be heir apparents. I wouldn't be surprised to see an OLB shifted & placed here. Sanders needs to produce. Cornerback talent will be a little light but developing with Prude, Stevenson, Chevis Jackson, Daniel Francis, Keron Gordon, Sam Joseph, Nick Child & Jeffery Jack. Safeties Landry & Daniels are solid but with little or no back up if injuries hit. Teams are going to test LSU's secondary early (ASU, Tennessee) in 2005. We need to develop quickly & stay healthy (above all else) It'll be interesting to see what the new DC does with this defensive talent when so many will test it through the air. Can he get the pressure he needs up front to help this young secondary from getting toasted early in 05 Offensive Line & TE - solid senior line with sound backups. Arnold & Livings must produce & Big Herman is ready to give someone some splinters. RB - loaded WR - loaded waiting on delivery QB - This is THE STORY for Spring 2005 (Flynn or Russell) & worthy of a poll Who do you think will emerge at QB at the top of the depth chart, if anyone, in Spring?
