Breaking down the Bulldogs' defense

"If big Denzel is in, we punch JaQuan back at linebacker," Hatten said. "He has great football game speed, when you watch him on film. We automatically become super athletic at linebacker."

Daniels’ presence at linebacker would certainly help a position that was somewhat short on numbers in the jamboree, as would the return of Amp Seals and D.J. Stewart, who missed the jamboree due to injuries.

Kyle Koontz, last year's leading tackler, was the only experienced Bulldog linebacker who played in the jamboree.

"We weren't very athletic at linebacker during our jamboree," Hatten said. "We were out-athleted at that place on both sides of the ball. One kid that hadn't played football in three years played, and on the other side was a transfer learning a new defense.

"We were really youthful at those positions — not necessarily by age, but experience.”
