Thinking that Lanier will put up similar numbers in a backup role this season. He really improved a great deal in 2017 and made a name for himself.

The Alabama boys are defensive ends as Boone mentioned and are highlighted in that post. Payne could see some time at DT.

The Redskins defensive scheme doesn't really use a nose tackle in the classical sense, but they do line up in both the 3-4 and 4-3 alignments each game. DTs are going to play a greater role than in previous seasons.
