On the defensive-line it will be interesting to see who will be the second-team nose tack behind Domata Peko. It looks like DT Brandon Thompson may miss some time with a knee injury, and DT Larry Black suffered a season ending leg injury. Terrence Stephens played the nose at Stanford and could look to make an impression running with the two’s.  I also believe that Wallace Gilberry will take additional snaps at DT while Margus Hunt plays second team DE.

The second team group of linebackers will be the all-undrafted free agent club. Emmanuel Lamur has reportedly been impressive during camp and the ultra athletic Jason Dimanche is playing ahead of veteran Aron Maybin.  Brandon Ghee isn’t giving up his second team spot to Dre Kirkpatrick without a fight. He along with Kirkpatrick are having good camps.
