It was, arguably, the most dominant group in the Big 12 in 2019.

The Baylor defensive line, after changing to a three-down front entering the year, terrorized Big 12 backfields for 46 sacks, 10 more than second-place Oklahoma finished with in 2019.

That three-man front is entirely in the NFL, now:

James Lynch (2019 Big 12 Defensive Player of the Year): Minnesota Vikings
James Lockhart: San Francisco 49ers
Bravvion Roy: Carolina Panthers

That means entirely new faces up front, including guys like Temple High School grad TJ Franklin.

“We’ve got a couple guys,” defensive coordinator Ron Roberts said. “It’s now, you know what I mean? None of those guys have experience. We’ve got some good-looking body types that I’m pretty excited about.”
