Syracuse 2021 spring football preview: Defensive backs

As Syracuse Orange spring football soldiers on, our position preview series does as well. Since we started this a good month before spring ball began, though, we’re already almost done with this exercise.

Last time around, we took a look at the Orange’s young but talented linebacker corps. This week, we shine a spotlight on another young group, the secondary. While SU’s defensive backs are all pretty young, last year’s injuries actually gave playing time to just about everyone. That’s a big plus now in year two of the 3-3-5 scheme.

And if you missed any of the previous pieces, check out our looks at the defensive line, coaching staff, offensive line, quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers/tight ends.
