    Our selections seem about right. Interesting that they placed LSU's Guice as first team RB, and Fournette as second team RB.

    No OL or DL representation says a lot.

    How'd we do compared to the other schools in the state as far as # of players represented? The mobile site sure is hard to read...

    Guice will have to get hurt next year for him to not win the Heisman. Fournette is more legend than substance.

    McGuire should have been 2nd team.

    McGuire was second team. I agree with each selection of UL All-Louisiana members.

    I think Guice is a beast. But I also think Fournette is everything he was made out to be. The problem was LSU's offense. Fournette will be plenty of substance in the NFL.

    Congrats to Joe Dillon and the rest of the Cajuns!
    "Dillon, named to the second team as a defensive lineman, was joined by first-team selections Otha Peters and Steven Coutts, along with second-team selections Elijah McGuire and Stevie Artigue."

    Don't get me wrong, Fournette is a tremendous RB. Guice is a clone of Marshawn Lynch.

    But our leading tackler doesn't make either team?

    Don't agree with either statement. Guice is not 240lbs.-250lbs backs like Lynch, he is more similar to Marshall Faulk with a second gear that can run away from defenders. Lynch never ran away from many, at any level.

    Fournette is a unique physical talent, there aren't many kids coming out of college that are 6' feet plus and 235-pounds with 4.4 speed to run away from a defenders, over or through defenders. Now he may not have a long career in the NFL like Petterson, but he has similar ability of OJ Simpson, Chuck Muncie, Bo Jackson, Herschel Walker, Earl Campbell or Eric Dickerson. The list is very short over the past 30 plus years of college football. He is a freak athlete.

    And if I remember right, coming out of college he was more slender and shifty. Kind of "morphed" into a big bruiser..

    Lynch played above 215 since 2009 and did so his last three seasons. Below are his comments, just a few on his bulking up. But in any case, he never ran away from defenders the way Guice is doing right now. Marshall Faulk 5'10, 210 is a closer comp considering his breakaway speed.

    He played at 215 with the Seahawks, he runs hard he isn't exceptionally big and never played at 240 or 250 was my initial reason for posting his weight.

    No he didn't, it was well known throughout the NFL Lynch played above his listed weight on the roster. There are other stories if you want to look for them. He may not have played at 240 or 250, but 230 plus isn't that far off.

    When it comes to colleges I never trust roster measurements, the NFL Combine is always different from what athletes are listed on college rosters. Elijah McGuire has never been 5'11 and neither is Guice.

    So for the article you posted he got his weight up to 230, so previously he played at less than that. There are several articles quoting Pete carrol that he lost a lot of weight once he got to Seattle and his weight was way down from buffalo.
