Best in the West: Defensive Line
BATON ROUGE - All week long, WBRZ will be looking at the football teams in the SEC West, going position group by position group to determine the best in the west.
On the defensive line, the Ole Miss Rebels appear to have one of the best combinations of talent, veteran leadership and returning playmakers in the league.
Led by former 5-star defensive end Robert Nkemdiche, the Rebels bring back better than 75% of their tackles and tackles for loss, second behind only Texas A&M in the SEC West.
Alabama and Auburn are close behind in a tie for second.
On Tuesday we'll check in with the running backs, as we continue our countdown to SEC Media Days.
