With a span of returning defensive ends, a Cardinals positively have knowledge bookending a line. Both Julian Carter (6-3, 205 pounds) and Dane Schobel (6-1, 180) move decent distance and good speed adult front, though Columbus needs to find some beef in a center of a defense. A year ago, run-heavy district foes Giddings and La Grange total for 115 points opposite a Cardinals.
