One of Oregon's big needs in the Class of 2014 is defensive back. While the Ducks have plenty of talent in the defensive backfield, the departure of a handful of players in the two-deep after 2013 will make the position a priority.

Brian Jackson and Avery Patterson exhausting their eligibility in 2013 means safety will be one of the biggest needs. The Ducks have identified several targets to fill the void, and one of the top players on their board made the long trek to Eugene, Ore., late last week.
