Linebackers Look Solid
August 28, 2012
FAYETTEVILLE BULLDOGS HAVE GOOD DEPTH AT KEY POSITION
From season to season, the technique and defensive philosophy used at Fayetteville has tended to be a revolving door.
POSITION BATTLE: LINEBACKERS
Watch Out For: Heath McCracken, a 6-foot-1, 190-pound senior who played defensive back last season.
Biggest Strength: Brooks Ellis, a 6-foot-2, 215-pound University of Arkansas commit, returns at middle linebacker and should attract plenty of double teams to open up opportunities for other linebackers to make big plays.
Biggest Question: Fayetteville has a bit of inexperience in the middle of the defense behind Ellis. While McCracken has played in the secondary, other linebackers will be new to starting or primary backup roles.
