Whitney Mercilus

Height: 6'4 | Weight: 265 | Born: July 21, 1990 (age 21)

Devon Still

Height: 6'5 | Weight: 310 | Born: July 11, 1989 (age 22)

Michael Brockers

Height: 6'6 | Weight: 306 | Born: December 21, 1990 (age 21)

Brandon Thompson - DT - Clemson

Brandon Thompson

Height: 6'2 | Weight: 310 | Born: October 19, 1989 (age 22)

Dontari Poe - DT - Memphis

Dontari Poe
