Blame this season's passing woes on whichever deserving party you see fit: the coaching staff, the quarterback or the wideouts. There's plenty of blame to go around for a passing attack that is middling -- at best -- for a third consecutive year at LSU. And while all three of those parties deserve criticism, there's no denying that the Tigers' young receivers just haven't stepped up their level of play after the departure of Rueben Randle for the NFL. There have been too many drops, fumbles and miscommunications through eight weeks of the season.

The commitments of ESPN 300 wide receiver Chuck Baker, ESPN 300 athlete John Diarse and juco wide receiver Quantavius Leslie should boost that depth in the receiving corps. And the possible commitment of No. 1 2013 wide receiver Ricky Seals-Jones later this year would be a huge boon.

But with the absurd amount of in-state talent at wide receiver in 2014, combined with this year's struggles, LSU is certain to look for some more talent to catch passes in Tiger Stadium.
