VIDEO: Burnham Talks D-Tackles

Iowa State defensive tackles coach Shane Burnham talks about Demond Tucker and the progression of the other defensive tackles during spring ball.

From the onset of spring practices back in March, most interest and attention has been placed on JUCO transfer Demond Tucker, who arrived at Iowa State in January with a load of expectations to bolster the defensive line.

Tucker himself won't be able to transform a defense that faces a need for improvement, yet the expectations facing him won't soon pass. So far, so good for Tucker, who has moved to No. 1 at nose guard and who has drawn praise from his position coach Shane Burnham.

Here's what Burnham had to say about Tucker and the other defensive tackles.
