As part of our UCLA Football Fall Preview, we looked at the defensive backs and I wrote that the DBs should be one of the best units on this year’s team.
Keeping that in mind, our defensive backs are the guys who are going to make Josh Rosen into one of the best quarterbacks in the country this year. In practice today, Rosen had a rough day.
But, it wasn’t so much because he was playing poorly as it was the defensive backs continually making good plays and limiting Rosen’s options.
To be certain, when Rosen looks at today’s film, he won’t be happy with his performance. He’s a competitor and that’s the way he is. But the DBs really stepped up their game today defending Rosen’s passes.
In fact, Rosen was unable to complete a pass for more than a few yards against the defense today.
He also threw one INT which was tipped by Ishmael Adams right into the hands of Jaleel Wadood.
That was Rosen's only pick on the day.
Meanwhile, against the second team defense, Mike Faufel ran an efficient attack while throwing for a few TDs.
After practice, Coach Mora met with the media. He expressed the fact that he was quite pleased with the way the team has practiced over the past two weeks.
