Mississippi State head coach Dan Mullen feels confident in the leaders on this year's team.
Although captains have not been announced, Mullen has witnessed a handful of players going the extra mile this summer getting ready for this season.
Many of the older Bulldogs gathered up their teammates for player-only workouts this summer. That spoke volumes to Mullen.
"It tells you that you've got a lot of leadership among the team," he said. "You have guys that are setting the standard within their position group, within the offensive and defensive units and overall on the whole team. A lot of the young guys are going to follow the lead, but when you have guys that have played a lot of football that are setting the standard very high in what they are doing, how hard they are working and how much they are putting in, it is easier to follow that than trying to get it done any other way."
