***VanGorder said the execution was better on defense in scrimmage but they still have a lot of work to do, especially with communication.
***The linebacker position is wide open. VanGorder said he was pleased with Jason Garrett's play and wanted to give him a shot at earning a starting job by moving him over to the other OLB position. He likes his OLB's to cross-train.
***Under normal conditions, VanGorder doesn't like to substitute a lot at the LB position but may have to early this season to find the right guys.
***VanGorder said Cassanova McKinzy is still going through the process of learning the defense. He said he can often take a freshman 4-5 games into the season to pick everything up. He said Cassanova has the physical traits to play the position.
***He said redshirt freshman ILB Chris Landrum is still learning and it's a process for him.
***He said the front 4 is competitive, especially the defensive tackles. Corey Lemonier and Dee Ford are pretty set as starting DE's but there's a lot of competition at the 2's.
Looking forward to Auburn defense as its supposed to be played!!!
Started at the bottom, now we here.....better get used to it.
