BATON ROUGE, LA -  LSU's No. 1 cornerback Greedy Williams is widely considered a potential first round pick in next year's NFL Draft. But, with a largely unproven group behind him, who steps up in 2018 to help lock down the other side of the field?

"I feel like Kary Vincent has had a good spring," said defensive coordinator Dave Aranda at the coaches caravan this July. "He had his track obligations, so the time that we had him, he was impressive. I think Kary has really matured. His football IQ I think has increased."

Last season Vincent had three starts as a freshman in 11 games played. Vincent racked up nine tackles, an interception, a pass breakup and two pass deflection in 2017.

With Scotlandville native Kelvin Joseph coming in and Stanford grad-transfer Terrance Alexander in the mix, 
Aranda believes there's enough options where the defensive back room can be the strength of the team in 2018.
