For 90 minutes, LSU worked - without pads - on situational drills, pitting 11 vs. 11 from different yard lines.
Here are some notes that stood out from the session:
From the work we have seen headed into the Spring Game, it seems safe to say those three are the top cornerbacks headed into summer training.
Martin looks a little sharper than Gibson despite the fact that Gibson has had some time in the program. While Martin beat the other freshmen DBs to the field last fall, it appears Eugene is ready to make a run at solid playing time.
Through the 90 minutes media was able to observe on Thursday, Edwards rotated in with Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo on the first-team. Jermauria Rasco got the other second-team reps, and he looked like he's made some progress and has some better technique than a year ago.
The middle hasn't changed at all, with Bennie Logan and Josh Downs still taking the first-team reps, though on Tuesday, Anthony Johnson said he has begun to split first-team reps with Downs, who has been injury prone over his four seasons in Baton Rouge.
Jeremy Hill has some great hands, and on Thursday he said he's going to be used a lot as a fullback who can run into the flats and haul in a pass or get a few tough yards up the middle. He said it would be a lot like Spencer Ware's role during his freshman year at LSU.
He was on point with some deep balls and definitely has weapons at wide receiver that he can utilize.
Stephen Rivers isn't far off with his accuracy, but he can't make all the throws Mettenberger can. Jerrard Randall's troubles are still with consistency and accuracy. He has absolutely no trouble shooting the ball out of his hand like a rocket.
Wright made some nice grabs on Thursday, and Landry and Beckham both run clean routes and have great hands. All three had a number of passes from Mettenberger thrown their way.
It was a relatively quiet day for Russell Shepard, who made some good catches but then dropped some passes that would have been caught by most everyone in the group.
Jacobs doesn't have great hands and appears suited only for blocking. Edwards and Travis Dickson appear a little small to make a huge impact right now, so I think the success of the tight ends in the passing game is on Clement.
A crowd of over 400 students took to the Charles McClendon practice fields to watch LSU's walk through leading up to Saturday's Spring Game.
After 90 minutes of practice, Miles spent 30 minutes walking around the field with a microphone in hand, directing 10 male students and 10 female students threw a football gauntlet that included fielding punts alongside Tyrann Mathieu and Odell Beckham.
From start to finish, the players - soaking up the unusual atmosphere - cheered on their fellow students.
"This was a lot of fun," Miles said. "I think the players had fun and it appeared that the students enjoyed it as well.
"The LSU student body is a group that is very loyal. They are the first ones in Tiger Stadium on Saturdays during the fall and they are classmates of the players on this team. We wanted to repay their loyalty and their dedication to our program and this is just a small way of saying ‘thank you.'"
Miles ended the day with a meet-and-greet, where students were able to shake hands, get signatures and chat with Miles and the entire football team.
"This was a lot of fun for us," said junior safety Eric Reid. "We know how much the students do for us and how much they care, so this was a cool way to get them involved."
Students will get a second chance to see the Tigers up close in Saturday's Spring Game, held in Tiger Stadium and set to kickoff at 1 p.m.
While Miles had yet to split the teams up, he did give his view of what the day would entail.
"It will be a game that we expect the players to go out and make plays," Miles said. "We look forward to seeing how they have developed this spring, and this will give us a chance to see what our team may look like on Saturday's going forward."
Miles said the first half would be as game-like as possible, followed by a second half with a running clock.
"We will be very vanilla," Miles said.
