On Azeem Victor and his reputation around the league: “We all have to be very careful with hitting guys in the head and I think once you get a call like that, like he got against USC, the officials are always going to know ‘watch out for 36’ and all that, so everybody needs to be very conscious of staying off the head and striking the strike zone which is the numbers to the knees.”


On what makes Victor so special: “I think he’s got a very good frame. He’s 6’4”, 230 pounds, he runs very well, he’s got very good agility for a bigger inside linebacker so I think he’s got all those physical gifts you want in a true inside linebacker.”


On Victor’s leadership skills: “One of the things with Azeem, he’s very passionate about the sport and all that. Sometimes emotions can get the best of him, but he’s doing a heck of a job controlling all of them and channeling it the right way.”


On the young linebackers: “Brandon (Wellington) was our first interception by a linebacker in camp. He’s doing a nice job and he certainly has a big future ahead of him.”


On where he sees Camilo Eifler and Brandon Wellington playing: “Right now they’re both inside linebackers, but we’ll go from there and see what happens.”


On Tevis Bartlett: “Certainly taken a step. There is no doubt  that he’s taken a step. In the summer, I think our strength guys were very pleased with him and in this camp, he’s a much better player than he was a year ago at this time.”
