When you look at LSU’s ridiculous amount of talent at wide receiver, it is tough to imagine another year of dismal quarterback play.

The Tigers have four potential No. 1 receivers in Travin Dural, Malachi Dupre, John Diarse and DJ Chark. Trey Quinn is no slouch either, and could emerge as a go-to guy in the slot.

Between these five, it seems inevitable that LSU’s offense will feature an All-SEC wide receiver, if not several. First team honors are always a tall order, but the talent at the position certainly makes it a possibility.

It is impossible to tell, however, who the best candidate on the roster would be. Right now, we do not even know what the depth chart is going to look like for the season opener on September 5th.

It is safe to assume that Dural will be a starter, being that he is the most experienced and accomplished player of the bunch. Dupre can also be expected to see plenty of action, though the other three talented receivers in the group could take away some of his touches.

Based on this past season, Dural will be the go-to guy if Anthony Jennings is under center. If Brandon Harris wins the starting job, expect big numbers from Dupre.

You cannot count out any of these five players from having a breakout season, though. If quarterback play is improved, there is no reason to believe that one of them will not be named first team All-SEC.
