The next 2 were Aldarius Johnson and Streeter. 2nd team LB's were CJ Holton, Arthur Brown, and Jordan Futch. The first team LBs were Ramon Buchanan, Sean Spence, and DJ Sharpton. That means Kylan Robinson has fallen from first to third team. Olivier Vernon was starting at right defensive end today. The 2nd team ends were Steven Wesley and Andrew Smith. Allen Bailey wasnt on today's two-deep. The DB's rotated quite a bit. DVD, Vaughn Telemaque and Randy Phillips were the staples. Brandon Harris and Sam Shields rotated.

They had a case of the drops today. Smith threw a couple nice balls to A. Johnson and Byrd in the endzone and both were dropped.
