BATON ROUGE, LA (AP) - When LSU defensive end Danielle Hunter studied video of his play last season, one thing in particular stood out.

Hunter said he was usually the last defensive lineman to move on the snap of the ball, negating some of the advantages his speed should have provided.

So, the 6'6", 247-pounder with a track-and-field background decided this summer that he would start trusting his instincts and stop overthinking things.

Now, he's making life increasingly difficult for the No. 13 Tigers offensive linemen in practice. And, those linemen expect their counterparts at 14th-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday and across the Southeastern Conference this season to feel their pain when they face Hunter.

Offensive tackle Evan Washington said Hunter has matured a lot heading into his junior season and looks like a whole new player.
