IIRC the stripes help coaches see on film where the players are looking. I believe only people around the ball have them, ie, linemen don't.

I believe that was something Coach Rhoads started when he first got here to help get the DBs on track with when and where they look.

The top picture is of RB Maleek Williams. Bottom solo picture (not Olajabutu tackle) is TJ Hammonds.  They also have the stripe on tailbacks and skill position guys. It's for the same reason as the defensive guys.  In the RBs case, it's don't be looking where you're headed before the ball is snapped.

I've heard that too but wouldn't the facemask indicate the same thing?

The stripes help the coaches tell where the players are looking.

Coaches usually stand behind their players during practice.
