College Football Preview 2011: 2. LSU Tigers

2. LSU Tigers
Key Position Players
QB Jordan Jefferson- Senior
RB Spencer Ware- Sophomore
WR Rueben Randle- Junior
WR Russell Sheppard- Junior
CB Morris Claiborne- Junior
Les Miles may have one of his most talented teams in Louisiana State history thanks to the return of 16 starters. One of the returners is Jordan Jefferson who has improved a lot in his years as starter in the passing game. And, we all know that he can move around in the pocket or scramble if necessary. The backfield lost Steven Ridley but they have a good core of talented sophomores including Michael Ford, Spencer Ware and Alfred Blue. And, if needed, technical wide out Russell Sheppard can run and he can even play QB but he's best at the receiver position. Rueben Randle is now Jefferson's number one option now that Terrance Toliver is done. Center P.J. Lonergan isn't too bad on the offensive line. 7 returners on defense is enough for the Tigers even though they did lose sure top 10 pick Patrick Peterson at cornerback. Also gone are defensive tackle Drake Nevis and linebacker Kelvin Sheppard. Though the secondary is still strong thanks to All-SEC Selection Morris Claiborne, who has speed and good hands for a cornerback.

Heisman Hopeful: Jordan Jefferson
SEC Rank: 1st
