Dominant defensive line
LSU boasts one of the top defensive lines in the country, despite the fact that their scheme will switch from a 4-3 to a 3-4 this season. They return all four starting linemen from last year as well as experienced back up Greg Gilmore.
Arden Key and Lewis Neal have been tagged as two of the best defensive ends in the SEC as they combined for 11 total sacks during the 2015 season. Those two along with Davon Godchaux should make a huge difference for the Tigers in 2016.
