The West Virginia University football team will see some new faces at the DE position this season.  After losing guys like Bruce Irvin and Julian Miller, there will be some guys that must step up and bring pressure to the Big 12 quarterbacks.

Unfamiliar faces bring unfamiliar strengths and weaknesses.  New starters must learn the system as soon as possible, and be ready for Sept. 1 against Marshall.

With increased expectations, the Mountaineer offense is not as questionable as the defensive unit.  After a team scores 70 points in a BCS bowl, the offense will not be questioned as much as the uncertain defense.

Blown coverages can't happen as much in the Big 12 Conference due to the elusive receivers and quality offenses it presents. 

Here's a list of some defensive ends and other pass rushers who can make an impact this upcoming season.
