15. Dee Liner, Arkansas State DL

Biographical Information: Junior defensive lineman from Muscle Shoals, Alabama. Transferred from Alabama and is thus sitting out the 2015 season. A former 5-star/4-star prospect and Under Armour All-American. Originally picked Alabama over Auburn, Georgia, Miami, USC, Tennessee, and Arkansas. Parents’ names not listed.

Fun Fact from Official Team Bio: He was coached by Scott Basden at Muscle Shoals High School. No idea if we should know who that is or not, but it was included in his bio

Why I love the name: His parents have always been very controlling. Since the day he was born, sweet, innocent Dee had his whole life carefully planned for him. All decisions were made for him, and all of his interests and activities were hand-chosen by his mom and dad in an attempt to steer him into the exact future they envisioned. This is blatantly evident in his assigned football position. If Dee had any dreams of playing quarterback or linebacker or punter, it’s safe to say he never had a chance. This is his life, and this is his future. It has already been written. Enjoy your existential crisis as you realize you have no control over your life, Dee! I’ll be rooting for you nonetheless!
