NCAA Football: SEC Football Media Day Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

I feel confident in predicting this number will go up by the end of the year, with Lawrence in particular finishing higher than third team. Players like K’Lavon Chaisson, Grant Delpit, Cole Tracy and probably at least one other offensive lineman will be in the mix here as well.

In other news, tight end Foster Moreau was named to the John Mackey Award Watch List. The award goes to the nation’s top tight end. Moreau is LSU’s leading returning receiver with 30 catches for 357 yards and four touchdowns, and graded out as the top blocking tight end in the game by Pro Football Focus.

Jonathan Giles was also named to the Biletnikoff Watch List for the country’s top wide receivers. Giles was a finalist for the award in 2015 with Texas Tech.
