Ellis Johnson Talks 1st Scrimmage

There is quite a bit of information in this visit with Ellis Johnson, the Auburn defensive coordinator. New defensive packages, for special situations are being installed. Some of this is because of the "injury to Carl Lawson" says Johnson, although with the depth at the defensive line, there might be some other reasons for adding new packages.

In a brief description Coach Johnson  said that defensive lineman has been replaced by another defensive back, or linebacker depending on the "situation."

Anthony Swain keeps doing a "good job" according to Johnson. This really good news for linebacker depth.  Along with the news that JaViere Mitchell is getting better. He was injured during spring practices. Both starting linebackers are doing "really well, they didn't get many reps" says Johnson.
