LSU among pass rushing elite

8/1/2012

You can tell how starved everyone is for football by the amount of preseason rankings. It continues today with an intriguing defensive list -- this time the top-10 defensive lines in college football.

LSU places high on the list, as expected. Thanks to the star power of Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo, the Tigers rank second behind Florida State. This LSU defense returns the players who made 27.5 of the Tigers' 39 sacks last fall, which is plenty of reason for a lofty ranking.
