avoid these guys
End Julian Miller, nose tackle Chris Neild and linebacker J.T. Thomas are formidable defenders. Miller’s a junior; the other two are seniors. Miller made 14 tackles for losses last season, including nine sacks. Neild doesn’t pile up big stats — 35 tackles, no sacks in 13 games last season — but he occupies blockers like few others in the Big East, making it easier for his teammates to make stops. Thomas ranked second on the team with 76 tackles. He is also adept in pass coverage and is expected to become more active blitzing this season.
