This could be a pivotal get for the Tigers, especially if Barkevius Mingo and Sam Montgomery declare for the draft, as ESPN 150 athlete Kendell Beckwith (Jackson, La./East Feliciana) will likely end up as a defensive end at LSU. You can never have enough front-seven personnel, and with Beckwith’s versatile athleticism in having played as an outside linebacker/defensive end hybrid and even Wildcat quarterback in high school, you have to appreciate what he brings to the table.
