For 2014, biggest needs are at safety, RB 

November, 20, 2012
Sometimes it's really easy to tell what's missing from a program's roster.

For instance, take a look at LSU's losses heading into 2013, and the abundance of commitments along the defensive line makes sense. Consider the dearth of experience at linebacker this year, and you immediately understand why LSU signed six linebackers in its 2012 recruiting class.

It becomes a bit trickier to project if you look into the future, however. What positions will LSU be lacking when the Tigers line up for the 2014 season? Early departures for the NFL, transfers and injuries all play a role. The best bet is an educated guess, but with that you can begin to glean the Tigers' tendencies in recruiting for the coming year.
