LSU vs. Central Michigan: Notes and stats on depth chart

Ed Orgeron released his depth chart for Saturday’s contest against Central Michigan. As usual, not all injuries or personnel decisions factor into the weekly release.

Geaux247 looks at this week’s depth chart, adding some of our projections and thoughts below, with a look at some individual stats through the first two weeks of the season.



Max Johnson 6-5, 218, So. Watkinsville (Ga.) Oconee County HS

Completed 44-of-73 (60.3 %) for 491 yards with 6 TDs and 1 INT

Garrett Nussmeier 6-1, 190, Fr. Flower Mounds (Texas) Marcus HS

Completed 3-of-10 (30.0 %) for 30 yards

Skinny: Johnson is QB-1, and this is not the week to play musical chairs behind center.

Running Back

Tyrion Davis-Price 6-1, 223, Jr. Baton Rouge (La.) Southern Lab

21 rushes for 67 yards; 2 catches for 26 yards

– OR –

John Emery 5-11, 215, So. Destrehan (La.) Destrehan HS

Has Not Played – Ineligible

– OR –

Corey Kiner 5-10, 213, Fr. Cincinnati (Ohio) Roger Bacon HS

11 rushes for 57 yards and 1 TD

– OR –

Armoni Goodwin 5-9, 185, Fr. Trussville (Ala.) Hewitt Trussville HS

2 rushes for 23 yards

– OR –

Josh Williams 5-9, 194, So. Houston (Texas) The Kincaid School

5 rushes for 19 yards; 2 catches for 18 yards

Skinny: Barring something unforeseen, Emery’s academic status will not change this week, keeping him out again. Goodwin is questionable, leaving Davis-Price, Kiner and Williams as the top three.

Wide Receiver

Kayshon Boutte 6-0, 190, So. New Iberia (La.) Westgate HS

14 catches for 179 yards and 5 TDs

Devonta Lee 6-2, 215, Jr. Amite (La.) Amite HS

No Stats Recorded

– OR –

Brian Thomas Jr. 6-5, 198, Fr. Walker (La.) Walker HS

1 catch for 18 yards

Wide Receiver

Trey Palmer 6-1, 187, Jr. Kentwood (La.) Kentwood HS

10 catches for 77 yards and 1 TD

Koy Moore 6-0, 190, So. Kenner (La.) Archbishop Rummel HS

3 catches for 32 yards

– OR –

Jontre Kirklin 5-11, 186, Sr. Lutcher (La.) Lutcher HS

Has Not Played – Ineligible

Wide Receiver

Jaray Jenkins 6-3, 198, Jr. Jena (La.) Jena HS

3 catches for 46 yards

Chris Hilton 6-0, 178, Fr. Zachary (La.) Zachary HS

No Stats Recorded

– OR –

Malik Nabers 6-1, 188, Fr. Lafayette (La.) Southside HS

Has Not Played – Injured

– OR –

Deion Smith 6-3, 198, Fr. Jackson (Miss.) Jackson Academy

2 catches for 13 yards

Skinny: Hilton, Nabers and Kirklin are all likely out. The unit as a whole struggled catching the ball last week, and the top two should remain Boutte and Palmer, with Jenkins, Moore, Thomas and Smith all in the same boat.

Tight End

Kole Taylor 6-7, 247, So. Grand Junction (Colo.) Central HS

4 catches for 22 yards

Jack Bech 6-2, 207, Fr. Lafayette (La.) St. Thomas More HS

5 catches for 74 yards

– OR –

Jack Mashburn 6-3, 224, So. Covington (La.) St. Paul’s

No Stats Recorded

Skinny: Bech is LSU’s second-biggest receiving threat early on and still needs to be on the field more.
