Perhaps the biggest surprise on the team last year, nose tackle Jay-Tee Tiuli went from backup to first-team all-Big Sky.

The 320-pound senior from Federal Way, Washington, is not only a top-notch run stopper, but surprisingly good in the pass rush.

Tiuli should be able to clog the middle against the run, forcing teams to go outside.
