Might as well get started on it. Saban has.
I feel like a big time Qb and every OL possible will be the biggest need. A couple stud DBs would be huge.
I think we should set a minimum of nine 5-star players. The eight that we could end up with this year just ain't cutting it.
I don't think we can apply the word "need" to Bama recruiting anymore. Just saying...
An "elite" pass rusher
OL / Interior OL
LT, NG, Corner

It is so awesome to be a Bama fan right now. You are exactly right-CNS already has it layed out, not that other schools do not but certainly not as well. :) Will be interesting to see how QB plays out this spring. I wonder if the coaches would consider ia JUCO or transfer ala Russell Wilson if they aren't confident with what they see? We seem to be absolutely loaded almost everywhere else for 2014. Punter as noted will be an immediate as well as left tackle.

LT, CB, NG, blocking TE
Left Tackle x2 - would not be surprised to see us dip into the JUCO ranks to try to find a LT if Cyrus gives indication he will leave early.
DB & OL
Never Gets Old
DB and OL seem the most likely - which seems to be a priority every year and should be.
Next year's OL only has 1 SR and also Cyrus - so we will return at least 3 in 2014 - maybe 4. We have some monsters waiting in the wings, but not sure of any true elite LT's.
Belue and Fulton will graduate so CB's are vital. We seem to be stockpiling safeties every year.
An elite DT/NG would be nice and maybe some large MLB's like Donta too... Then the usual mix of studs at various positions...
OL and corners
Always.........We need 7 Top Notch OL, 2-3 DB's and we are set for 2 YEARS : )
Whoever wears #16 will need 4 arms to hold the four crystal footballs, for the pre-game intro, Saban teams will have won when were discussing it this time next year.

We should probably talk about '17 if we're trying to match CNS.
