Spring Preview: The Defensive Backs
AMES, Iowa - Iowa State lost both of its starting safeties (Kamari Cotton-Moya and Reggie Wilkerson) but is blessed to have two experienced all-Big 12 cornerbacks returning in Brian Peavy (5-9, 190, Sr.#, Houston, Texas) and D'Andre Payne (5-10, 180, Sr.#, Washington, D.C.).
Spring Preview: The Defensive Line.
AMES, Iowa - Iowa State ranked 26th nationally in scoring defense (20.9) and was third in the Big 12 in total defense (366.2) in 2017. The defensive line should receive credit for those outstanding numbers.
Spring Preview: The Linebackers
AMES, Iowa - What was considered to be a weakness in 2017 turned out to be the total opposite. The Cyclone linebacking crew was outstanding, producing three All-Big 12 players, including Joel Lanning, who also earned All-America honors in his first season at the position.
