2) We know who is starting on the D-Line As Well:

The weakness on last years disappointing defense was the defensive line. The starters didn’t produce as well as expected and the team struggled all year with lack of depth.

With both starting Ends from last years squad gone and projected star Travonte Valentine on indefinite suspension the line had lot’s of holes to fill.

The line will be anchored inside by tackles Christian Lacouture and Davin Godchaux. Lewis Neal (who missed the spring game with an injury) and Tashawn Bower are the starting Ends.

Maquedious Bain started the spring game in place of Neal and racked up three sacks. That is great news for fans concerned with line depth, as is the emergence inside of tackles Greg Gilmore and Trey Lealaimatafao. Getting production form your entire two deep rotation in the defensive line is critical when you play an SEc schedule. LSU looks much better set for line depth than it did this time last year.
