3. An Improved Defensive Line?
If you looked closely enough, the UCLA defense worked out of the 4-3 formation on defense a lot last season. They also had elements of 3-4 as well as the nickel defense.
Whatever they did, did not work.
Last year, the Bruins literally got run over by several teams. UCLA was eighth in the Pac-12 in the run defense allowing almoust 200 yards per game on the ground.
That issue has been heavily focused on by Bradley and the need to stop it prompted the DC to get more active on the line.
With four players, Bradley will be able focus more pressure in the middle with Eli Ankou and Eddie Vanderdoes at the tackles while the edges get more coverage from players like Takkarist McKinley, Deon Hollins and Keisean Lucier-South.
