The Pac-12 Preseason Breakdown: The Defensive Lines

June 24, 2018

Welcome to our Pac 12 Football Previews.  We will go through each and every position unit including special teams and coaching (absent recruiting).  

This installment is the defensive line units.   Given some of the 3-4 units will utliize an OLB who plays more snaps with their hand on the ground, we have occasionally included those players as DE for purposes of this ranking.   Bear Insider puts a premium on experience, past production and coaching at this position.

Previous Previews:  Quarterbacks / Running Backs /  Offensive Line  / Receivers/Tight Ends

2018 Pac 12 Defensive Line Preview:   We start up front on defense and note that nine of the Pac 12 teams currently a run a variant of the 3-4 defense.
