Craig Roh DE SR
William Campbell DT SR
Brandin Hawthorne LB SR
Jordan Kovacs S RS SR
Kenny Demens LB RS SR
J.T. Floyd CB RS SR

If I could pick one senior to come back for another season, it would be JT Floyd. Kovacs is great and I would love another season of Big Will, C Roh, and Kenny Demens, but M seems much better equipped depth wise to deal with the loss of those 4, when compared to the CB, and the loss of JT Floyd. Brandin Hawthorne is great on ST's but his loss is the most sustainable.

Depth and experience aren't so great at Safety either, and makes me tempted to go with Kovacs, but for the missed season and uncertainty surrounding Blake Countess at CB.
