UNC Defensive Line Progress Report

Tray Scott and Nazair Jones talk about how the defensive line is focused on improvement.

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. -- UNC's defense has given up an average of 15 points per game so far this season. Three games into last season that number was 42. 

Defensive line coach Tray Scott and lineman Nazair Jones talked about what's changed to enable the improvement, specifically on the D-Line.

Larry Fedora described the D-line play as solid, and Tray Scott said he agreed.

"I would totally agree, we aren't where we want to be but I'd be lying to you if I told you the guys weren't trying to improve," Scott said. "There's a few things from week to week that we have to do better but I think when it comes down to it at the end of the day the guys just have to continue to work and stay focused on the process."

With only two team sacks in three games, Jones said the defensive line needs to be more disruptive on passing plays. 

"Just getting pressure on the quarterback," Jones said. "Not even always getting sacks but getting a hand up, knocking down passes. Just making him uncomfortable in the pocket."
