The best defense ever assembled? - Washington Times
...After spending most of last season in a 3-4 alignment, USC returns to a conventional 4-3 base this season. Seniors Sedrick Ellis and Lawrence Jackson both delayed first-round NFL paychecks to give the Trojans arguably the strongest tackle/end combination in the nation. Junior run-stuffer Fili Moala returns at the other tackle spot, while ultra-touted junior speed rusher Kyle Moore puts his hand down at the other end slot after struggling in last season's 3-4.

But blue-chip depth is what makes this unit special...

...Though the Trojans' defense has no weakness, the starting linebacking corps of senior Keith Rivers and juniors Rey Maualuga and Brian Cushing is clearly the unit's strength...
