University of Louisville defensive line coach L.D. Scott has a tough job - to replace Sheldon Rankins.
Scott is in his third season as an assistant coach at his alma mater and said replacing the first-round draft pick of the New Orleans Saints isn't going to be done by one guy.
"You just can't do it with one guy, that's impossible," Scott said on Thursday morning. "But we have some guys that are leaders, we have some guys that can make plays and I think we're going to see Devonte Fields and James Hearns have big years rushing the passer, so we're going to be able to get more pressure off the corners.
"We just have to have the guys in the middle keep working."
Scott said DeAngelo Brown was the leader and "the strongest guy" he's ever been around and mentioned Johnny Richardson and Drew Bailey as guys he's seen stepping up so far.
But Scott said there's plenty of work to do.
"It's going OK so far," Scott said. "But we still need work. We are working on tackling better in space. It was something we didn't do well last year and we're working on it."
