Welcome to Bruins Nation’s preview of the defensive backs for the 2019 UCLA Bruins football team. Last year, because of UCLA’s inability to pressure the passer, the Bruin secondary was often picked on. Even though this is a relatively young group, the talent is present and there is still significant room for improvement. If UCLA can get some pressure on quarterbacks this year, this could be a special group.
We will take a look at the anticipated two-deep at each of the cornerback and safety positions, as well as identify a couple of other student-athletes who could see playing time this season.
