Here are some notes from the 25 minutes the media was allowed to observe practice:
Matched up against Kenny Hilliard (5-foot-11, 240), Feist (6-2, 225) – who should technically be in his final semester of high school – came off the whistle and blew Hilliard back before slamming the sophomore running back onto the ground, which sent a handful of players from the defense into a frenzy.
While fellow freshman linebacker Lamar Louis lost his battle for the second day in a row, this time to running back Jeremy Hill, Feist has been quick to make an impression on defensive coordinator John Chavis.
The win drew cheers from the defensive backs, who know that Collins is pushing to get to the field for the first time as a Tiger.
Collins, fellow redshirt freshman David Jenkins and sophomore Ron Vinson are all battling for the third cornerback spot behind Tyrann Mathieu and Tharold Simon, and presumably the second cornerback spot when Mathieu shifts to his role in the nickel and dime packages.
The lightest of the group is Alfred Blue at 6-2 and 215 pounds. The heaviest: Jeremy Hill at 6-2 and 240 pounds.
The official roster at www.LSUsports.net lists Spencer Ware at 5-11 and 223 pounds, though it appears he may be closer to 230 pounds.
Zach Mettenberger looked the part on Tuesday, and it's evident he has been working on his timing with receivers outside of practice.
Collins said Monday that Mettenberger and the wide receivers began workouts together over a month ago.
Kragthorpe repeatedly told Rivers his hips were getting better when he dropped back and turned to throw, then Kragthorpe jumped on his backup QB when Rivers threw a ball too high on a deep route and it got caught in the wind, forcing the receiver to come to a standstill to catch the football.
When throwing 5-yard slants, Kragthorpe praised all three quarterbacks – including redshirt freshman Jerrard Randall – for driving the ball into the hands of the receiver.
While he has bouts with accuracy, Randall has no trouble with ball velocity. Out of the trio, Randall throws arguably the hardest ball.
Beckham flashed a couple of one-handed snags on overthrown deep balls, while Landry tucked away some tough throws when running slant routes.
And remember, with Adam Henry in his first year as wide receivers coach, everyone is getting a chance to make a first impression.
At 6-3 and 200 pounds, Williams looks like a slightly smaller version of Rueben Randle, though it's evident that Williams has a way to go before earning the reps Randle earned.
While there hasn't been much mention of Williams by the staff during the past two seasons, he could develop into the vertical deep-threat that is missing from the unit.
