DEFENSE

DephNOTHING EARTH SHATTERING HERE, BUT…

* Austin Hardin (RFR) won the placekicking job over senior walk-on Brad Phillips, but technically it remains an open competition. Muschamp said, “Brad was slowed by a groin. Again, Brad kicked well when he kicked, he just didn’t have as many attempts or at-bats as Austin did. But Austin sort of distanced himself as a kickoff guy and the placekicking duties. But Brad is a guy who has been in the game before and done it when the lights were on, so that’s something we’re going to work through during the season.”

* Brian Poole is the listed starter at nickel over Vernon Hargreaves III, but since Muschamp didn’t update VG3’s injury status (sprained shoulder) here’s guessing this gets flip-flopped once the freshman is cleared for contact.

* Clay Burton is the No. 1 tight end, with Muschamp saying, “I think Clay is just a very dependable guy who can play multiple spots as far as playing on the line and also playing what we call the “move” position. He's able to do some different things.” Sophomore TE Kent Taylor is nowhere to be found.

* The tailback situation remains in flux. Mack Brown, Mark Herndon and Valdez Showers are all listed, while Muschamp refused to name/compliment freshmen running backs Adam Lane or Kelvin Taylor.

* Solomon Patton (WR) and Valdez Showers (RB) are the main two kick returners, but Louicheiz Purifoy (CB/WR) will return kicks too.
