Indispensable Spartan #7

Who is the No. 7 indispensable member of the Spartans 2012 team?

Darqueze Dennard

Georgia native Darqueze Dennard made great strides in his game last season and will enter the 2012 season as the starting field corner.

Coming off his best career game in the Outback Bowl against his home state team, Dennard will be a key element to the Michigan State defense as those behind him lack the experience possessed by the 5-foot-11, 190-pound junior.

Last season saw Dennard start 11 games giving him 13 career starts entering the Boise State game. He posted 42 tackles with three pass-break-ups and three interceptions, two in the win over Georgia.

If the Spartans would lose Dennard for any amount of time they would have to look to Trae Waynes, Arjen Colquhoun or pull another member of the secondary over to the field corner spot.

Because of his experience and continued growth, Dennard made our No. 7 spot as an indispensable member of the Spartans football team in 2012.
