Crystal LoGiudice-USA TODAY Sports
Athlon Sports recently put out a list of several players in the SEC they expect to break out in 2014. Included was LSU true freshman running back Leonard Fournette and sophomore cornerback Rashard Robinson.

Leonard Fournette, RB, LSU
The No. 1 player in the 247Sports Composite rankings for 2014 could have a monster season in Baton Rouge. The LSU offensive line is one of the best in the SEC with four returning starters, and with a young quarterback (Brandon Harris or Anthony Jennings) slated to start, expect the Tigers to lean on the ground attack. At 6-foot-1 and 230 pounds, Fournette has the size and skill-set to be an every-down back in the SEC. If he gets enough carries, the Louisiana native could finish near the top of the conference in rushing yards.

Rashard Robinson, CB, LSU
A number of LSU defenders could earn a mention in this space, but Robinson is Athlon’s pick to have a breakout year on defense for coordinator John Chavis. The 6-foot-3 corner has the size to matchup against the bigger receivers in the conference, along with the speed to prevent big plays in the passing game. Robinson was a late arrival to preseason camp last year but finished with 16 tackles and broke up three passes in 12 games. The emergence of Robinson and sophomore Tre’Davious White should give LSU one of the top cornerback tandems in the nation.
Who do you think will break out for LSU in 2014?

I think hunter and Rasco could both break out, also one or a couple linebackers, these guys were very talented and are all chomping at the bit to show off those skills. Chavis says they are now ready and hes giving more freedom, which means they will be flying around. Put Debo, Beckwith,and Kwon on the same field and good luck running the ball! LSU has a lot more talent then has been advertised and I believe Miles and chavis know it. We are picked 5th in the sec, yet we are a legit title contender? LSU wouldn't be fifth in the sec even if we ran the ball 100% of the time. FACT!!

"Funny they didn't mention shutting down a receiver who went #5 overall in the draft when speaking on RR." - Who do you think they were talking about when they said "The 6-foot-3 corner has the size to matchup against the bigger receivers in the conference"
