Hardly two years removed from playing college football on a 12-man defense in western Canada, Akiem Hicks is primed to emerge as a full-time starter on an NFL defensive line.

LSU_youthThe Tigers, who had a school-record eight defensive players drafted, will have four new starters on the defensive line alone.

Preston Parker says he never learned to love football until he lost his job as an NFL receiver for nearly all of last season.

"There is no throw that this kid can't make. None," new LSU offensive coordinator Cam Cameron said, comparing QB Zach Mettenberger's throwing ability to that of reigning Super Bowl MVP Joe Flacco.
