UCLA Football Has Some Fast Linebackers

One of the first things you notice about the Bruin defense is how fast (and tough) they are, especially the group that will cause the most havoc, the linebackers. “Violent” has been used to describe them and that is not wrong.

For example, on the last play of scrimmage, Myles Jack had caught up with shifty back-up RB Roosevelt Davis (who broke through the line) and threw him to the ground. Starter or back-up, teammate or opponent, Jack does not care. If you are on the opposite side of the ball, he will floor you.

Kenny Young showed a lot of poise during camp and looked to have improved his coverage, but as far as speed goes, he was quick off the snap and found ways to get to the offense.

The pass rush was incredible and should be utilized a lot more in 2015. Every time the ball was snapped, the Bruins had someone coming off the edge, whether it was Deon Hollins, Cameron Griffin or Jayon Brown and believe me, they were very fast and did a very good job getting in the back field.
