Editor's note: This week we continue to break down each of LSU's position groups as we prepare for the Tigers to open preseason practice in early August. After examining the offensive positions last week, today we focus on the linebackers.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- One of the leading questions for LSU's spring practice is how the Tigers' defense might function differently with Kevin Steele as defensive coordinator.

BATON ROUGE, La. -- When it comes to turnovers and sacks, it's not a chicken-or-the-egg equation for LSU's defense. It's a chicken-AND-the-egg thing -- because without one, the Tigers likely won't have the other.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Maybe he doesn't want to give away anything to Wisconsin, maybe it truly is a tight battle -- and maybe it's both -- but LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said the quarterback race between Anthony Jennings and Brandon Harris is too close to call.
Editor's note: This week, we'll take a quick look at each of LSU's position groups as the Tigers prepare to open preseason practice next week. Up next are the linebackers. LINEBACKER Returning starters: D.
BATON ROUGE, La. - One of the biggest defensive storylines from LSU's spring practices was the position shuffling that took place at linebacker. If you weren't paying close attention at the Tigers' spring game, however, you might not have realized just how much shuffling had taken place.
