BATON ROUGE, La. -- It might seem strange to say, but LSU has a rare luxury of knowing it will lose at least two linebackers after the 2013 season with both Lamin Barrow and Tahj Jones entering their senior seasons.

What's so weird about that? It's becoming more rare for contributors such as Barrow to make it to a senior season as the Tigers have adapted to players leaving after their junior or redshirt sophomore seasons.

With Barrow and Jones departing after this season, we can look at candidates to replace them in the 2014 recruiting class.
