Breaking down the Bulldogs' defense

Published: Friday, June 7, 2013 at 12:18 PM.


Hatten's biggest concerns for the defense rest on the Bulldog defensive backfield.

"We've got to get better back there," Hatten said. "With Jaylynne (Robinson) playing both ways, he didn't have but a week of reps on defense (in spring practice). And then (Devin) Siler had about three days and he's got to get better.

"Demetrice Smith was the only starter from last year (that started the jamboree)."

Dominique Gaines, Keenan Manci and Trent Stepp also started in the secondary in the jamboree. It’s undetermined how much Gaines, Manci and Stepp will play in the fall.

Robinson, Siler and Malique Studevan have a high chance of starting in the secondary.

Hatten is concerned, but he remains optimistic that the secondary will come together.
