There's a lot of hype surrounding the Sooners heading into the 2016 season, but one of the biggest question marks surrounding the team comes on the defensive side of the ball. OU returns only one starting linebacker, while defensive coordinator Mike Stoops will also need to find a starter at cornerback opposite of Jordan Thomas. 

Both linebacker Jordan Evans and safety Ahmad Thomas are two of the Sooners' most reliable players as returning starters, and the defensive duo had a chance to talk with reporters at Big 12 Football Media Day earlier this week. Evans discussed which players he thought would fill in next to him at linebacker, while Thomas talked about the development of fellow safety Steven Parker among other things. You can hear what both guys said in the video above.
