33 MEL TRIPLETT, FB. Great blocker, driving runner. Has tendency to fumble.
44 KYLE ROTE, LE. Best faker in the league. Bad knees have cost him speed, but he is wicked on short passes.
70 SAM HUFF, LB. Great speed and quick reactions for big man. A deadly tackier, good on pass defense. Sometimes overeager.
30 BILL SVOBODA, LB. Intelligent, quick. Equally strong against runs or passes.
45 EMLEN TUNNELL, DHB. Not fast, but reacts quickly, particularly on passes. A hard tackier who is seldom out of position.
81 ANDY ROBUSTELLI, DRE. Defends well against runs, drops off as well to stop passes or else puts great pressure on passer.
76 ROOSEVELT GRIER, DRT. Tremendous agility for 275-pounder. Sure tackier, closes inside beautifully. Has been trapped.
77 DICK MODZELEWSKI, DLT. Great initial charge, but still hard to trap. With Grier, rushes passer very well.
