At A Glance: Defensive Line

Defensive Line/Associate Head Coach Rodney Garner

I've seen enough game film to say this; Auburn Football will have a very good defensive line. 

Much has been made about the loss of notable talent. With good reason. Carl Lawson, Montravius Adams, Maurice Swain Jr., and Devaroe Lawrence, all left to pursue their NFL dreams. 

That's a lot of experience. 

Coach Garner has a reputation of "hard nosed" coaching. It's true. He can be really tough on these guys. Coach Garner also has a habit of rotating many guys along the defensive line during games.  

When we add the recruiting that this staff has managed to accomplish, we begin to see there is plenty of game experience and talent in this group. No less than 13 names are on the official roster along the defensive front. At least 7 of those men have previously played. 

Here is the group of fine young men who will carry on the tradition:
Marlon Davidson
Derrick Brown
Byron Cowart
Paul James III
Tashawn Manning
Jaunta'vius Johnson
Andrew Williams
Nick Coe
Alec Jackson
Tyler Carter
Tyrone Truesdale
Dontavius Russell
Gary Walker

WAR EAGLE!
