Scout.com pro football expert Tom Marino recently posted his picks for the top two college seniors at each position at ScoutNFLexperts.com. Five of the guys rated No. 1 at their position are SEC players, and three of these represent LSU.
The five number 1s are wide receiver Early Doucet (LSU), guard Will Arnold (LSU), defensive end Quentin Groves (Auburn), defensive tackle Glen Dorsey (LSU) and linebacker Jasper Brinkley (South Carolina).
Still not convinced the Tigers have enough bit-time talent to make a serious run at the national title? Then consider this: Marino's pick as the NCAA's top offensive senior is LSU's Doucet. Marino's pick as the NCAA's top defensive senior is LSU's Dorsey.
The Tigers clearly have elite-level talent, so the heat is on head coach Les Miles to produce an elite-level team.
