5.49 PASSING YARDS PER ATTEMPT ALLOWED BY LSU'S DEFENSE, THIRD BEST IN THE NATION BEHIND ALABAMA AND SOUTH CAROLINA.
FS ERIC REID JUNIOR
Reid appears to be the next in a line of prototypical defensive backs at LSU, after Patrick Peterson and Morris Claiborne. At 6' 2", 208 pounds, Reid tied with Tyrann Mathieu for the team lead in tackles in 2011 (76). This is likely Reid's last season in Baton Rouge.
