#10 - Depth at defensive line Next » 1 of 10 « Prev
The projected starters on the defensive line (Romney Fuga, Ian Dulan and Eathyn Manumaleuna) have as much experience and talent as you'd want along the defensive front. Given the nature of the position, all three will be hard-pressed to take every rep during games and will require good backup options.

Who those backups will be remains a concern with a host of inexperienced players vying for spots. The lone experienced backup is Russell Tialavea, who is still trying to regain his premission form. Other options include Simonte Vea, Remington Peck, Mike Muehlmann, Bronson Kaufusi, Theodore King, Tui Crichton and Marques Johnson, who is still hampered with injuries. Another option is Ezekial Ansah, who has logged practice time at both outside linebacker and at defensive end.
