"(Senior tackle) Ricky Lumpkin has been around a long time. I expect (end) DeQuin Evans to be a leader," Phillips said."One of the things (assistant coach ) David Turner is doing is giving those two guys a chance to be leaders.

"We should get a lot of leadership from (junior linebacker) Danny Trevathan. In the secondary, I feel (junior cornerback) Randal Burden is becoming a leader."
