I'm an idiot when it comes to these things, so help me out: why is this not called 3-2-6?
I always thought the first number was referring to the DLs, 2nd number was LBs, and the third was the DBs. PB claims a 4-2-5, but this illustration only portrays 3 DLs.
I imagine this has something with how these "spacebackers" lineup and position themselves, but would love some clarity/
If SL/PB can find another JUCO for the Feb. signing date or (the right) portal transfer who could start on the DL then we have a MG defense that can create more 3 & out stops for Littrell’s offense to take over some CUSA games. Then things become very interesting for the balance of the 2021 season.
This is not my predicted depth chart.
I repeat the is not a depth chart prediction
Just a preview and visual of what is currently on the roster as of today. I used Bennett's 4-2-5 D as a template.
I am interested to see how Bennett uses some player in the new Defense. Does KD Davis and Kevin Wood get moved to a strong safety roll. Gaddie go forward as a Safety or CB. Do Murphy's keep hand on the ground or move to a rush OLB role? Alot of stuff
Think it was a wise move to stay and learn from Coach Bennett. However, I hope he takes out an insurance policy if case he gets an injury that would impact his chances of making the NFL. Meanwhile he can continue getting an education for after football days.
