I think Courtney Jackson and Shane Viverios(both seniors) will be starting over Hunte and Adeoba
but they'll all be in the mix at LB.

I was very skeptical about the 3-4 after the spring game but after watching the media day scrimmage I'm pretty excited about what they're gonna do this year. There's a lot of options in the 3-4 and we have quality depth at every position.
