This last week, the front seven looked pretty typical. Danielle Hunter, Anthony Barr, and other pro bowlers were leading the defense. But, several rookies were holding down the secondary.

Notably, Marcus Epps was making plays. Epps batted down a potential touchdown pass from Kirk Cousins to Stefon Diggs over the middle. Epps also almost picked up an interception on Tuesday. Zimmer had a lot of good things to say about the sixth round pick, which you can check out here.

Epps has been playing safety and nickel. Keep an eye on number 39.
