Collins, Magee, Welter to represent LSU at SEC Media Days

The 2014 LSU football team will be on the search for leaders throughout fall camp following the departures of several veteran Tigers via the NFL draft.

A handful of the top candidates to take over the reins on the program will be representing the squad during SEC Media Days on Wednesday, July 16.

Offensively, seniors La’el Collins and Terrence Magee will face reporters when LSU is featured on Wednesday afternoon.

Collins has started 25 games over the past two seasons, and he decided in January to return to LSU and play his senior season before entering the NFL draft. He earned second team All-SEC honors after recording 65 knockdowns in 2013.

Magee is one of two senior LSU running backs in 2014, and he will look to provide both a run and pass threat out of the Tigers’ backfield. Magee had a breakout season in 2013, finishing with 626 rushing yards and eight touchdowns.

From the defensive side of the ball, senior D.J. Welter will represent a young Tigers’ linebackers corp on Wednesday afternoon. Welter, who started every game of the 2013 campaign at middle linebacker after missing the 2012 season due to academic ineligibility, collected 80 tackles and two sacks last season. His performance to remember came in the Outback Bowl against Iowa, where he made six tackles and one sack in LSU’s 21-14 victory.
