LB Tavante Beckett: Beckett is playing special teams, and he has seen time in mopup situations at Backer. He has played in all six games, and he has four tackles.

WR Samuel Denmark: Denmark is still a bit raw, and he is being redshirted in 2016.
ROV Reggie Floyd: Floyd has appeared in all six games on special teams, and has seen mopup duty on defense.
