Jelani Jenkins had a very impressive 2014 season and the team and it’s fans are hoping that 2015 will be even better. Jenkins is the unknown here as he had a breakout year last year but was that simply a fluke or does he have the consistency to do it year in and out with improvement? Jenkins could be a future Pro-Bowler, he has that talent level and the addition of Suh should free him up to make more plays. Taking advantage of an improved defensive line will be imperative for the continued education of Jelani Jenkins.

Chris McCain also could play a very important role this year as he is expected to challenge for a starting job.
