Exclamation PFF: Top-10 Defenses entering the 2021 season

Top-10 Defenses entering the 2021 season

1. Alabama
2. Georgia
3. Clemson
4. Cincinnati
5. Washington
6. Texas A&M
7. UAB
8. Louisiana
9. Pittsburgh
10. LSU


The Blazers are the slight favorites to take home the Conference USA title in 2021, and their defense is a major reason why. Last year’s group was the fifth-highest-graded nationally and ranked fourth in successful play rate allowed.

UAB did lose star edge defender Jordan Smith and starting cornerback Brontae Harris to the NFL, but the defense returns every other key contributor. Interior defender Tyree Turner (90.0 PFF grade in 2020) and edge defender Alex Wright (78.8 PFF grade in 2020) lead the way up front. The secondary is highlighted by Damon Miller and Will Boler, who led UAB to the 13th-highest-graded safety room in coverage last season, and slot cornerback Dy’jonn Turner owns the highest slot coverage grade in the Group of Five since 2019.
