Who are the motivator/leaders on this defense?

I really don’t see the former walk-on and diminutive Kevin Richardson getting into a lineman or linebackers face and motivating. Agim is just a sophomore but he is the closest thing to a man on this defense we got. Where will the mental toughness on this defense come from? Pulley? Santos? Ramsey? Greenlaw? Who will step up to lead on our defense?

I assume Allen and Ragnow can handle this on the offense but we need some defensive bell cows. Who will they be?

I think Kevin Richardson very much has the respect of the other defensive players. Apparently, he was the one who broke up the skirmish on the second day of practice.

Santos Ramirez being voted a captain shows he is a leader among that group. I think you also can put Dre Greenlaw and Ryan Pulley in that group.
