PISCATAWAY, N.J. -- Marcus Thompson moved from the "E" to the "R" in the offseason and loves his new role on the Rutgers defense.

The "R" position at Rutgers is a hybrid defensive end slot used in coverage and as a pass-rush specialist. Thompson replaces Ka'Lial Glaud at the position and is still learning the ropes this spring.
