Should look at pressure vs # of drop backs.

LSU had more longer developing passing plays than most teams


They go into some detail about how often the line gave Burrow 4+ seconds while in an empty set.

Burrow created a ton of plays by buying time with his legs, so the plays where he created a sack by doing so were overlooked.

Alabama


good defensive talent




Nobody's buying your 'poor me' bull shite.

Alabama's recruiting rankings:
2019: #1
2018: #5
2017: #1
2016: #1
2015: #1

If Alabama doesn't have talent, NOBODY has talent.

LSU had injuries on defense all year, and was playing true freshmen against Alabama. No other year have Alabama fans given LSU, or any other team, any consideration for injuries on either side of the ball, don't expect any from other fans.

The LSU OL was multidimensional....when it need a first down running it had a high percentage of success. When it was obvious passing downs, it allowed the QBs to make its reads.

It was more balanced than 95% of the OLs in college football and it used 8 different names to do it over the course of the season.

Wasn't a lot of continuity. One of our tackles was out 5 games for weed. Our true freshman phenom guard got hurt at the beginning of the year and Ed Ingram didn't get cleared till after the texas game. Not sure how many games we had with the same starting lineup but I would guess not many


This!

LSU loses a lot on the OL, but returning back ups got plenty of snaps. It was an odd year for the OL

LSU didn't have the same starting line up for most of the year...which lead to the high sacks and high % of pressure.

I want to say, LSU didn't have continuity until around week 9 or 10.

They weren't the best but good enough. A lot of plays LSU was sending 5 receivers including the rb. This leaves your o line susceptible to every blitz package you can conjure up on defense. Burrow was other worldly escaping pressure and making a positive play.

How it relates to 2020. Myles will need a cleaner pocket than Joe. I think you'll see a lot more shorter passes because Myles doesn't glide around the pocket and wait for the longer routes to develop. LSU will run the ball more as they should. I look for an improved o line this season. By mid season the continuity should be good.

Sure and Mark Ingram winning the Heisman shows that.

re: How good was the LSU OL in 2019
LSU lead the nation with 5-man protection plays. Were they the best no. But I would at least put them top 10. People base the opinion of them being a bad line on 2018. Well 2018 was a difficult year because they battled injury and scheme issues. When an offense only has two men go out on a pass route, the QB has to hold the ball longer. Brumfield a senior in 2018 was not a good play as well. In 2019 they were a good line.

Considering they were voted best by Hall of Famers and others who actually played the game, I would say yes over a Gump who probably sat the bench in Pee Wee Football and now has trouble getting out of his recliner because his bear gut is in the way. RTWFU

Not trolling guys, very serious question.
I've read that their OL was number one.

I've also read That Joe Burrow was the most pressured QB in CFB last season.
If he was he handled the pressure extremely well.
Just a serious question. What do you guys think.?


LSU was able to use the same personnel and run every formation out of it. So In this draft, Cushenberry the Center is as of now projected as a 2nd round pick, D. Lewis the RG is projected as 4th. T. Moss our TE who had 47 catches for 570 and 4TDs was a very effective run blocker. He is projected as a 3rd round pick. Sadiq Charles the LT went out early, was suspended 6 games this year and probably thought his year to go is projected in 6th round. Ingram . Adrian Magee the LG is projected as 7th round. So it is possible 5 of the 6 guys who started most of the games this year from TE to Tackle could get drafted. So no 1st round guys but a talented group that played well together.

Yes, it should have went to Oregon. Just like the 2018 Jim Thorpe award winner should have been Delpit

LSU didn’t have the best OL. Joe, Clyde & play calling were elite. Above average run blocking but not elite - lots is trouble with stunts & delayed blitzes in pass protection. As someone mentioned LT was a revolving door.

Burrow made them look better than they actually were.

They were good, not great, IMO.

re: How good was the LSU OL in 2019
Our OL won an award as the best line. I think it was a good line, but I think our offensive scheme of getting the ball out of the QB's hands quickly had a lot to do with this. Plus Burrow's ability to escape any rush is what made the numbers show that this line was the best. Who knows?

The same defense that got plenty of pressure on your qb and held your rb in check? Burrow’s extraordinary ability to avoid pressure isn’t evidence of a great OL.

Too 20.... we had a hard time with blockers downfield on passes. We had a really good center this year who kept our snaps and protection in check. We had lots of different lineups but when all the starters were playing we got significantly better.
