Quick! Name one team in college football that is losing more talent on the defensive side of the football than the Tigers?
I didn't think so...
LSU is going to face a tough task in 2013 as the Tigers are preparing to replace seven of 11 starters on defense. Gone is All-American safety Eric Reid. Gone is the dominant two-headed monster at defensive end, Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo. Gone is one of the nation's best middle linebackers in Kevin Minter. The list goes on and on.

Let's go ahead and take a look at five players who will be important to rebuilding this LSU defense in 2013.
