2013 starters: Corey Miller (Sr.), Daniel Hood (RS Sr.), Daniel McCullers (Sr.), Jacques Smith (Sr.)
2016 backups: Jonathan Kongbo (RS Soph.), Danny O’Brien (Sr.), Kendal Vickers (RS Jr.), Kyle Phillips (Soph.)

Who has the edge: This is another tough group to judge partially because we don’t know exactly what the defensive line rotation will look like, so it’s tough to say who the starters and backups will be at some spots. There’s a lot more experience for the 2013 starters, but a ton more upside from the 2016 backups. Talent-wise, I like the 2016 bunch better, but some of those guys still need to prove it on the field.
