Defensive Line (10): Clelin Ferrell, Arden Key, Justin Ellis, PJ Hall, Johnathan Hankins, Maurice Hurst, Josh Mauro, Ethan Westbrooks, Maxx Crosby, Anthony Rush
Clelin Ferrell and Arden Key look really impressive so far this summer, and that will prove to be huge for this franchise moving forward. Although they have a lot to prove when the regular season starts, from the way they won their blocks during the first and second preseason matchup, they both look promising.
Madd Maxx Crosby isn’t playing due to his surgery from his broken hand. But he looked good too the first week. Those are three young defensive ends that could end up being quite the trio before all is said and done.
Johnathan Hankins and Maurice Hurst were the starters vs. the Cardinals, but when the season starts, Hankins and Ellis will be the run-stopping defensive linemen. P.J. Hall and Maurice Hurst will get plenty of playing time as well.
Quinton Bell has a lot of developing to do, but that is what the coach is here for. Between him and all of the other young defensive linemen, if defensive line coach Brentson Buckner can get these linemen to develop, they will be something special.
