College Football News Preview 2020: Top LSU Tigers Players
Best LSU Tigers Offensive Player
WR Terrace Marshall, Jr.
It’s your turn now.
With Justin Jefferson and Ja’Marr Chase both gone, it’s up to the 6-4, 2000-pound junior to be the No. 1 target with a slew of great young players around him. He caught 46 passes for 671 yards and 13 scores, but he has the upside to be more of a volume catcher to go along with his skills as a matchup problem on deep plays.
2. QB Myles Brennan, Jr.
3. OT Dare Rosenthal, Soph.
4. TE Arik Gilbert, Fr.
5. OT Austin Deculus, Sr.
Best LSU Tigers Defensive Player
CB Derek Stingley, Soph.
Grant Delpit won the Thorpe Award as the nation’s top defensive back, but he wasn’t even the best defensive back on his own team. The 6-1, 190-pound Stingley stepped on the field as a true freshman and became an instant star, earning All-America and All-SEC honors.
He came up with 38 tackles, but his real worth was as one of the nation’s top lockdown corners, coming up with six picks and breaking up 15 passes. Don’t expect the numbers to be nearly as good – no one will dare throw his way.
