A poster on one of my last entries asked if the intensity level was up this year at Aggie practice. After watching Thursday's spring session, I can confidently say yes.
Look no further than the defensive line, where coach Jesse Williams ran his unit through an assortment of drills. Williams was riding his players at every turn of the way. In on the action were Donte Savage, E.J. Cannon, Kawika Shook, Chris Romero and Dejuan Yates, among others. Williams didn't accept anything less than maximum effort and execution. He was loud, enthusiastic and in their faces. I just wonder about the D-line. It's Williams' job to be tough on them, especially at this point in time. But last year, this unit was a major problem area on the team. It was young and undersized. Improvement here is a necessity.
Defensive backs coaches Mike Rutenberg and R. Todd Littlejohn are both fiery. And Walker has been very hands on with the DBs. This could be an area of strength as the season develops.
