2012 Secondary (Defensive Backs) Discussion - DBs

    A look at the depth in the secondary for 2012.

    Looking across that list...there is really no problem with depth. The real problem is that nobody outside of Roby has really stepped it up, other than Barnett, who played fairly well. Travis Howard MUST step it up this year, the talent is there.

    Bright side is we were really young and hopefully with the experience, this unit will be much improved. Plus the DL should be fairly dominant and if they can actually pressure the QB this year, that will take some pressure off.

    Not sure how you can say we have depth. I see 3 true corners.

    Agreed, I don't see much depth on defensive backfield at all. It honestly scares me. Even if we bring in another cb in this recruiting class, I don't feel confident with a true frosh possibly having to step in immediately. With only 3 real cbs, I wish bryant or corey brown could play cb as well as they did in high school. Out of the group of cbs, I think grant really Needs to step it up for us because he may have to play in the slot again and the nickelbck is becoming more important against spread defenses.

    I just meant overall...we have 11 scholarship DB's, with at least 3 coming in next year. Plus this was before the Cash transfer. I do see the issue at CB, with only Howard, Roby, and Grant. However, I think C. Brown or Bryant could play there if need be, plus it is looking good for Reeves to end up here.

    Tony Gerdeman's article talks about the CBs playing a few yards away from the WRs in order to be able to see the QB and make more plays on the ball.

    I like our DBs, but I disagree about them being the strength of the D.

    sounds like Johnson will be getting less playing time....

    Glad to see that Corey Brown has come around and is (hopefully) ready to contribute. Also, it will be interesting to see if Bogard gets some significant PT at Star...I think he is an extremely similar player to Bryant and a Tarblooder to boot.

    Definitely looking forward to seeing Pittsburgh Brown on the field. Five star DB/WR coming out of HS. Time for him to shine.
