Who replaces Will Heininger on the DLine? While RVB and Martin are two huge losses, there is a third big loss on the Dline Will Heininger, with no heir apparent in the wings.
I think it is fairly safe to say Q Washington, BWC, and Richard Ash are the odds on favorites to replace RVB and Mike Martin to start the 2012 season, answers are a murkier in regards to replacing the third graduating starter on the DLine.
Can Roh move to SDE? is he big enough? If so he seems the most likely choice to replace Heininger. Nathan Brink is next in line but I don't think he will win the spot. In terms of getting the best 11 on the field, wouldn't it make more sense to move Roh and let Black and Frank Clark be the WDE's? I think Wilkins may be the most capable physically of playing the position but having never seen him play, I don't know how to judge him.

|Graduating Defensive Lineman|
|Will Heininger||6'6''||295||RS SR|

I don't think any of the incoming freshman will be ready to start the opener next season over what is returning on the DLine
