Breaking down the Bulldogs' defense

Defensive line

Hatten said the line will be the defense’s strength.

JaQuan Daniels, Tyrone Baker and Marcus Flavors caught Hatten's eye this spring. He also liked what he saw from Gage Powers.

The question remains as to whether Justin Abdo will be on the offensive line or defensive line.

"We've got to figure that (where Abdo will play) out," Hatten said. "He's got to be able to contribute somewhere. And I think, based on his past, he's contributed better on the offensive line than anywhere else.

"He plays hard with a lot of energy and I don't want to put him in a place he's not going to be successful. He's a good high school football player, and those are the guys you win with."

A key to the defensive line in the fall will be Ware’s return. His presence up front allows coaches to move other players around and enhance the defense.
