Projected Spring DB Depth Chart

With spring practice set to start on Monday, Renegade previews the projected spring practice depth chart for the secondary.

Field Corner: Korey Mangum- (Freshman) - Mangum starts spring practice at No.1 Field Corner because of his strong performance during mat drills. As a senior in high school, the Army All-American recorded 75 tackles, four interceptions (one returned for a touchdown), 12 pass break-ups and three blocked kicks.

Michael Ray Garvin- (Sophomore)- Garvin saw a lot of playing time late in the season and he's expected to see a lot more playing time in his sophomore season. Garvin, who is extremely fast and strong for his size, recorded 16 tackles, while registering a sack, a forced fumble, and a pass break-up as a true freshman.

Tony Carter- (sophomore) - Carter will miss spring practice while he recovers from off-season shoulder surgery. The 5-foot-9 and 160 pound corner started as a freshman and did a very solid job. As a freshman, he recorded 41 tackles, four tackles for loss, 12 pass breakups and one interception. Expect the former Jacksonville high school All- First Coast player to start in the fall.

Boundary Corner: Jamie Robinson- (Freshman) – Robinson was also rewarded by entering spring practice at the top of the boundary corner spot because of a strong performance during mat drills. Many feel that the 6-foot-2 and 187 pound standout has the size and skills to rival former Seminole Antonio Cromartie. As a senior in high school, Robinson intercepted ten passes.

Trevor Ford- (sophomore) - Ford battled injuries and inconsistency during his first year of playing for the Seminole. However, the 6-foot-1 and 192 pound standout showed flashes that he could be an impact in the near future.

J.R. Bryant – (Junior) - Bryant started the final six games of the season for an injured Gerard Ross. Though inconsistent at times, Bryant gained a lot of valuable experience as a true sophomore. The former All-Dade County player will sit out spring while recovering from shoulder surgery.

Rover: Dee McClure – (sophomore) - There's a very good chance that McClure with play both safety spots as a sophomore do to his versatility. As a freshman, he recorded 14 tackles on special teams. As a senior in high school, he totaled 49 tackles, one interception and three forced fumbles.

Myron Rolle- (freshman) - Rolle, who enrolled at Florida State in January, is a high school All-American and one of the top players in the country. Rolle brings the size/speed combination that Derrick Gibson had while playing as a Seminole. Rolle is also one of the smartest players in the country who should catch on quick to Mickey Andrew's system.

Free Safety: Anthony Houliss- (Junior) - Houliss will start out the spring at free safety but he will also play rover as well. As a sophomore, he recorded 12 tackles.

Roger Williams- (Junior) - Williams will sit out most of spring while recovering from shoulder surgery. In the fall, he's expected to be in the starter. As a sophomore, he recorded 39 tackles and two forced fumbles.
