Fall Practice Report, Day Three

Day three of fall camp saw LSU as close to full attendance as they might see until kickoff.

Back from an absence was tight end Thaddeus Moss, who missed the first two sessions while inducting his father, Randy, into the Hall of Fame. Meanwhile, freshman offensive lineman Cam Wire was a full go, setting aside the injury Ed Orgeron once worried might sideline him for a couple of weeks.

Moss looks set to compete for the second tight end spot behind Foster Moreau. Steve Ensminger has said that two-wide, two-tight sets will be a big part of the Tigers’ offense.

Wire might’ve been a likely redshirt candidate, but Ed Ingram’s indefinite suspension has put stress on an already thin line.

Along the line, Lloyd Cushenberry and Cole Smith continued to work at center, while Garrett Brumfield – an option at center, if Cushenberry can’t retain his starting spot – worked at guard. Brumfield spent much of the practice with his helmet off, teaching the young linemen the nuances of technique. He and James Cregg each stayed close to concerted defensive lineman Chasen Hines, giving him pointers on his footwork and hand placement.

On the other side of the field, Bill Busch repped the safeties first on tackling drills, encouraging his unit to be the “best tackling secondary in the country.” Nickel option Terrence Alexander drew praise for his technique on a tackling drill. Eventually the safeties moved on to ball drills. The unit might be LSU’s deepest, with John Battle, Ed Paris, Eric Monroe, Grant Delpit, Todd Harris, and JaCoby Stevens among Busch’s choices.

Corey Raymond worked his corners on footwork, and they went in this order:

  • First pair: Greedy Williams and Kary Vincent
  • Second pair: Alexander and Kristian Fulton
  • Third pair: Jontre Kirklin and Kelvin Joseph
  • Fourth: Mannie Netherly

Ed Orgeron worked with the outside linebackers, another unit that appears to have some depth. K’Lavon Chaisson is the star of the group, but Andre Anthony, Ray Thornton, Michael Divinity, and Travez Moore all look quick and technically sound.
