No surprise as Kurtis Taylor handily defeats Nick Frere for the final defensive line spot.

The strongside linebacker position is one that could have a fair bit of competition. Michael Bibbs racked up 19 tackles in 10 games last year as a JUCO transfer. Backup Cameron Bell received numerous early accolades as a runningback, but ended up at linebacker. Both Bibbs and Bell are roughly the same size, with Bibbs a senior, and Bell a sophomore. The difference is that Bibbs has much more ingame action than Bell.
