Dawg Post Practice Report

ATHENS - Andrew Stephens breaks down his thoughts on Wednesday's practice.

DEFENSIVE LINE

Kirby: "PAD LEVEL, D-LINE, EVERYTHING YOU DO IS AT PAD LEVEL"

Trent Thompson has been working closely with Julian Rochester. I think Tracy Rocker sees potential there.

Jonathan Ledbetter is going to help tremendously when he comes back, which I anticipate will be before Vandy.

LINEBACKERS

-Doing drill work 99% of the time during the media session. Maybe the more we got to watch them, the more pressure they

SECONDARY

-Working heavily on dime coverage today. Will require defensive backs to play alert football, coming up to help when Dobbs decides to tuck the ball and run

-Kirby: "Y'all have got to learn to adjust to this shit" - in speaking on switching between zone and man

-1ST TEAM

--Baker and Parrish at CB

--Mauger and Sanders at Safety

--Smith at star

--Davis at dime

-2ND TEAM:

--Mecole and Briscoe at CB

--Wilkerson and Choates at safety

--McGraw at nickel

--McGehee at dime

OFFENSIVE LINE

-I'd expect to see more tight end hell, especially on Tyler Catalina's side

-No change across the front

TIGHT ENDS

-Working with the offensive line again. Have to get 2 and 3 tight end sets to be able to effectively establish a run game. The pass game will evolve from there.

QUARTERBACKS

-Business as usual

RUNNING BACKS

-Still no sign of Nick Chubb. This one is going to be a game time decision.

-Chaney: "Doing a hell of a job, Payne" - it appears the #PayneTrain is still on the tracks

WIDE RECEIVERS

-Chaney was working with the QB's so there was no one to scream at them today.

-I have been very unimpressed with Coach Coley's involvement. I understand a lack of vocality, but not when there's 14 drops in the last two games. He needs to take some responsibility for his position group, in my opinion.

SPECIAL TEAMS

-I've just stopped walking over to that field. It's becoming a detriment to my mental health. Seriously, get your 15 year old kid to start kicking footballs now, you could get him a free education out of it...
