Reading through the chat recap, Shea posted that Miles basically came out and said Jalen Mills would probably start at CB with Simon. Is Collins worse than we expected? I would think he had some talent if those CBs all transferred out. The spring game doesn't leave me that excited, but who knows how Mills would have been. Anyone concerned?
I tend to be overly positive...so the way I see it, this speaks more to Mills being really good and Collins being good but just not better than Mills.
it's a legitimate concern no matter what anyone says
GET AT ME
For sure...in keeping with my theme the offense will need to do more this year...
In Collins defense, hasn't he been banged up this fall?
Collins got burned a few times in the spring game, I was a bit worried about him going into the season. Mills must really be impressing though to take the spot after not being here in the spring.
I have been very concerned about this as well, but three things should help us out. First, a strong pass rush from the DL will help out the young CBs quite a bit. Second, the offense should be better this year, not leaving the defense out of the field for as many plays. Third, other than Washington, I don't see any really good (or at least proven) opposing quarterbacks on the schedule until November. Hopefully, this means that by the time we face McChestTat and Wilson, the young CBs will have gotten their bearings.
I wouldn't be surprised if Collins has been injured and Miles just won't say it.
+1 for "McChestTat" lmao!
Proud to support everything Louisiana
Yes, they are concern for the frosh are an unknown quantity till they get their feet wet.
They also need to stay healthy because you don't want to have to further into the depth and expose those guys too soon. They are freshman but it never hurts to have a year or two of strength training before defending against the wolf at the door.
The safeties are almost as concerning and that is because Loston can not stay healthy. We saw Martin a little last year but not enough to flatly state he can hack it at the levels required throughout a season. IMO, Loston is a healthy season from being an all SEC type of player, and an ideal, physical, symbiotic partner to the leadership and smarts of Reid--- but it appears he will never stay in playing condition to show it.
The secondary is going to be tested IMO if injuries affect only one or two of these primary players.
VERY important for a tremendous, consistent pass rush and for the LB's to be able to cover their territory well, both against the run and pass.
