The Minnesota Golden Gophers are looking for four new starters along the defensive line.

This is just one of several defensive groups with a major overhaul in the starting lineup.

Despite no returning starters, it may already have its No. 1 unit figured out.

The defensive ends look to be third year sophomore D.L. Wilhite and redshirt freshman Ra'Shede Hageman. Both are athletic, pass rushers. Hageman has the size and athleticism to be a four-down defensive end. The former tight end is nearly 300 pounds and has not lost a step.

The defensive tackles may be the best players on the team's defense. Juniors Brandon Kirksey and Jewhan Edwards are big, physical players. Kirksey provides more versatility than Edwards on the front.
