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 shift to the other side of the ball with the defensive line.
With three new assistant coaches and four early enrollees in the fold, LSU is scheduled to open spring practice on Saturday. As is the case each spring, there are a number of positions that are up for the grabs for the Tigers.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- Saturday's blowout win over Sam Houston State provided LSU with an opportunity to empty the bench -- and Tigers coach Les Miles took advantage by letting 16 players make their college debuts.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- The wait was long and sometimes painful, but Jermauria Rasco is finally healthy again. Throughout his LSU career, the senior defensive end has dealt with torn labrums in both shoulders - injuries that dated back to his early years of high school.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- We're a week away from the start of preseason practice for the LSU Tigers. Since several open spots on the depth chart make this arguably the most important freshman class in Les Miles' decade as the Tigers' coach, we thought it might be a good time to offer a refresher on Miles' thoughts about each signee once they officially became Tigers on national signing day.
BATON ROUGE, La. -- With three weeks to go until LSU opens spring practice on March 7, we'll use some of the down time to preview the upcoming series of team workouts. We've discussed the tight ends, defensive tackles, safeties and linebackers in the first four installments of this week's series on positions that can stand to improve this fall.
The ceremonies have concluded, the ink has dried and the fax machines have been turned off once again. And with that, the Class of 2014 is mostly in the books. As is the case annually, there were a number of winners but also some losers on national signing day.

One day before signing day, Texas has suffered another critical decommitment. And this once is twice as troublesome. Keller (Texas) brothers Sione Teuhema and Maea Teuhema backed out of their commitments on Tuesday, a source close to the family confirmed.
