Steven Lassan with Athlon Sports ranked the top SEC offensive lines for 2014 and LSU came in at No. 3. Here is what he had to say:
quote:

#3 LSU
Considering the inexperience at quarterback, expect to see coach Les Miles and coordinator Cam Cameron lean on the ground game and offensive line in 2014. This group is plenty capable and should rank among the best in the nation. Four starters are back from a unit that helped LSU rushers average 4.5 yards per touch in SEC play last season. Left tackle La’el Collins is an Athlon Sports third-team All-American for 2014, guard Vadal Alexander is projected to earn third-team All-SEC honors, while right tackle Jerald Hawkins returns after starting all 13 games as a redshirt freshman. Hoko Fanaika is expected to replace Trai Turner at right guard. Improving the pass protection is a priority after allowing a sack every 11 pass attempts in SEC play last year.
Complete Ranking:
1. Auburn
2. Texas A&M
3. LSU
4. South Carolina
5. Alabama
6. Ole Miss
7. Missouri
8. Georgia
9. Mississippi State
10. Arkansas
11. Vanderbilt
12. Florida
13. Tennessee
14. Kentucky

The guy A&M is plugging in at LT this year will be another top 5 NFL draft choice. A&M OL is rock solid with some reserves who could start on other SEC teams.

A&M had another stud LT go pro. Don't know how you stay above LSU when you lose the 6th player taken in the 1st round.

The same for Auburn.

Replacing a guard is significantly easier.
