HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - The NFL has taken another big chunk out of LSU's roster.
As usual, coach Les Miles just shrugs, says that's part of the job and plans to replace them with guys who are just as good or better.
The Tigers had nine players selected in May's draft - including several underclassmen - but expectations are still very high in Death Valley. LSU returns 13 starters from last season, including most of the offensive line.
Miles called linemen La'el Collins and Jerald Hawkins ''two of the finest tackles in our league'' during his time on the podium at SEC media days on Wednesday.
Collins and Hawkins should help protect the Tigers' new quarterback. Miles said the position battle continues between sophomore Anthony Jennings and freshman Brandon Harris.
