 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  LSU coach Ed Orgeron told "Off the Bench" that junior defensive tackle Tyler Shelvin still needs to cut weight before the season begins. Starting July 24, teams can hold in-person meetings and conduct walk-through practices with footballs. Shelvin is listed at 6-foot-3, 346 pounds, and it isn't the first time Orgeron has gotten on the tackle for his conditioning. The Lafayette native weighed 380 pounds when he arrived on campus in 2017, and Orgeron praised him last season for cutting down to a "slim 343" at one point. Shelvin had a breakout season in 2019, when he started in 13 games at nose tackle and recorded 39 tackles and three tackles for loss in former defensive coordinator Dave Aranda's 3-4 scheme.

Shelvin is expected to have a major role in new coordinator Bo Pelini's 4-3 defense, and Orgeron said there will be instances where Pelini will use two big tackles like Shelvin and 6-foot-4, 340-pound nose tackle Siaki "Apu" Ika. The weight just needs to get dropped. "First of all, if Tyler don't lose weight, I might get a Mack truck to bring him out there," Orgeron joked. "I do believe he will. I do believe he's going to get down. I believe in Tyler." - Baton Rouge Advocate
