One of the better run defenders from last year’s team is making strides in training camp.

Third-year defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko, on paper, faces an uphill battle to make the roster after Tom Telesco and company transformed the defensive line this offseason.

With at most two roster spots available for Fehoko, Jerry Tillery, Christian Covington, and Joe Gaziano, competition is at an all-time high. But the former LSU product had the best run stop rate in the league in 2021, a clue that he deserves a role even on this new-look line.

Fehoko has built on his strong 2021 campaign through a week of training camp. He’s racked up tackles for losses, split double teams, and generally made life for the second-team offensive line difficult.

On Monday, Fehoko also spent some extra time learning the two-hand swipe utilized effectively by All-Pro Joey Bosa.

Despite the crowded depth chart, Fehoko seems to be gaining more traction towards making the opening day roster. Splash plays as padded practices continue and extracurricular learning with the game’s best will only help him gain a foothold in what looks to be a much improved defensive line group.
