Houston Cougars Spring Position Previews: Defensive Line

Last year, there wasn’t another group that dealt with key injuries more than the defensive line. Young players were thrust into unfamiliar positions, but that also provided them with valuable experience. New defensive coordinator Joe Cauthen will switch things up, going to a four man front. He will need to create a two-deep depth chart quickly, but luckily he has a few options to work with this year. Ed Oliver may not return, but this group is out to make a name for themselves.
