The defense will be starting new players in Spring practice due to injuries. Kevin McNeil, who was the projected starter at left end, is out with a broken foot following a car accident. Walk-on Eli Charles will work in the No. 1 spot. At defensive tackle, Letroy Guion and Justin Mincey will hold down the fort this spring while Emmanuel Dunbar (back) and Paul Griffin (knee) watch from the sideline.
As stated previously, the biggest change on defense will be at the linebackers position due to the departure of Timmons and Davis.
The most stable area on defense will be the secondary since every scholarship player is back from last season.Despite the lack of seniors, Mickey Andrews' unit will have lots of game experience. Seven players in the secondary have started multiple games in their careers, and two others, Darius McClure and Patrick Robinson, logged extensive minutes on the field last season. The key for the secondary is to get better than they were last year.
