Gary Laney/ESPN.comDeSean Smith might be used in a number of ways at LSU.
It means playing wide out on some plays, going deep for passes from quarterback Kennon Fontenot, and working in concert with Bucs 2014 receiving prospect Trey Quinn to wreak havoc on secondaries.

So it was much to the delight of DeSean Smith, Barbe's tight end ranked No. 143 in the ESPN 150, to see LSU air it out with quarterback Zach Mettenberger at the spring game March 31. It wasn't the grind-it-out Tigers of the 2011. It was an LSU offense he could see himself fitting into.
