LSU is looking to improve on last season's 10-3 record, and the running back position will be a key component in the Tigers' success.

Jeremy Hill left early for the NFL draft, but Kenny Hilliard and Terrence Magee will look to step into larger roles this upcoming season.

The X-factor will be freshman sensation Leonard Fournette, who comes to Baton Rouge as the No. 1 overall recruit in the class of 2014, according to the 247Sports' composite rankings.

Bleacher Report's Barrett Sallee and Michael Felder project what to expect from LSU's running backs next season, and Sallee breaks down why Fournette will emerge as the No. 1 back.
