#34 – Steve Gardiner – Played in all twelve games during the season as a backup. If not for who was in front of him, Gardiner could be the starter. Much will be expected in the spring and he will be pushed hard by the younger players.
#33 – Kevin Pickelman – Played solid during the season with seven starts while playing in ten total games. Posted 31 total tackles on the season with 2.5 tackles for loss.
#32 – Chris McDonald – Starter at right guard who played solid all season. Much more will be expected of him the next two years. Could have been ranked higher.
#31 – Antonio Jeremiah – No one questions the ability of Antonio, however, he has never put it all together and found himself back along the defensive line by season's end.
#30 – William Gholston – The freshman was expected to make some sort of impact and did not disappoint before going down with an injury. Played in ten games on the season and posted 13 total tackles. Expect even more next season.
