Linebacker trio?

Submitted by blueheron on April 10th, 2010 at 8:27 AM

The '09 class had at least three linebackers (Isaiah Bell, Mike Jones, and Brandin Hawthorne) with some promise. Aside from Hawthorne (apparently spending time at deep safety), has there been any word on the progress of the others this spring?

Jones is playing weakside linebacker, according to Magnus, and Bell is too. Haven't heard an inkling about them from spring rumors yet though, except Denard crushing Mike Jones on his touchdown run.

These are basically weak side and strong side safeties, correct? Which one is Kovacs playing, and which one is storng side and which one is weak side?

From what I heard, both Jones and Bell were playing the WILL spot, the one currently occupied by Mouton. I've heard that Bell might try out the MIKE spot too, but now that Demens is looking strong there, maybe not. Either way, I wouldn't worry that we haven't heard much out of those guys since they play a spot with a senior returning starter. If we don't hear about them pushing for PT next year, then we can be more concerned.
