NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State defensive line brings back seven players who saw time in 2015. The unit looks to take a step forward despite being the only group, along with special teams, without a senior.

The defensive front is led by All-OVC Preseason pick, Ebenezer (Ebo) Ogundeko. The redshirt-junior was the lone All-OVC First Team selection in 2015. Edwards finished with 52 tackles, 10 for loss, five sacks, three quarterback hurries and a forced fumble.

The Tigers were tagged with a setback as they lost returning senior Rodney Edwards before the season and will redshirt in 2016. Edwards collected 41 tackles, recovered two fumbles, garnered two sacks, QB hurry and a pass deflection.

Latrell Lee proved to be a nice addition opposite of Ogundeko, as he recorded four and a half sacks, 29 tackles and two forced fumbles. Marvin Maddox and Dell Porter will also provide depth on the outside along with transfer Sidney Hammond.

Roc-M Nesbitt and Jason Morrow will replace Edwards in the middle and will receive added help from true freshman Michael Perry, transfer Jerquez Hughey and redshirts Kevin DeWalt and Quintis Maddox.
