It's great, GREAT news for the team.
Kelvin Sheppard led the Tigers with 110 tackles, and was arguably the heart of LSU's linebacking corps, a group that made vast improvements under Linebackers coach/ Defensive Coordinator John Chavis.
Joseph Barksdale, a two-year starter at right tackle, will get the chance to play left tackle next year on what will hopefully be an improved offensive line.
Terrance Toliver, one bright spot on an offense that struggled, will have a season as the number one receiver. Toliver had 53 receptions for 735 yards and 3 touchdowns.
I've heard that Chad Jones hasn't hired an agent (correct me if I'm wrong). If he hasn't, Chad Jones is able to undeclare from the draft if he chooses to do so before the January 18th deadline. Last year, Brandon LaFell declared for the draft before undeclaring at the last minute.
