The Big 30: Peevy has a key role to play as a starter

Class: Senior

Height/Weight: 6-foot-6, 295 pounds

2019 stats: 34 tackles, 5 TFL, 2.5 sacks

Projected 2020 role: Starting defensive tackle

Why he's number 15 on the list: Peevy had a great year in 2019 as the primary backup to Bobby Brown and Justin Madubuike; now, he gets his first chance to show what he can really do. Extremely quick for his size, he was very disruptive last season and could do a lot with more opportunities this year. Playing next to Brown, who can take up double teams and allow Peevy a lot of one-on-one opportunities could mean the chance to put up big numbers.
