Several key pieces are returning to LSU in 2023.
Wide receiver Malik Nabers is LSU’s most productive returning playmaker and was recognized as one of the best receivers in the country by PFF.
Nabers comes in at No. 5 on the list of returning pass-catchers.
“The sophomore was a monster after the catch this past year. His 21 forced tackles on receptions were fifth most among Power Five receivers,” PFF said.
Nabers was one of just 18 receivers in the Power Five to surpass the 1,000 yard mark and his 72 catches led the SEC. After playing nearly all of his snaps in the slot in 2021, he saw much more time on the outside in 2022.
He passed the test with flying colors, proving he can be a true No. 1 target.
With Kayshon Boutte off to the NFL, Nabers is the clear top dog in the receiver room. It’s his show now, which means he’ll be getting more attention from defenses.
LSU will need another receiver to take a step forward, much like the one we saw Nabers make last year.
