Defensive Back University looks to continue its trend of top performers in the secondary, even with the departure of Kenny Vaccaro, a consensus Day One selection in the 2013 NFL Draft.
Otherwise, Texas returns three starters in the secondary.
At cornerback, Carrington Byndom leads the charge after seeing a drop in numbers last season. Still, the senior corner is tops on the team and will always tag the opposition's best receiver.
Opposite to Byndom, probably a result in a shift in personnel, could be Leroy Scott who has strung together a number of strong spring outings. Duke Thomas, a highly-touted performer coming out of high school, will be the first corner off the bench.
Quandre Diggs, perhaps the best athlete in the secondary, could very well make the switch to safety, a transition he has yet to fully embrace this spring. With Adrian Phillips settling in at the other safety position, that leaves Josh Turner and Mykkele Thompson sharing the rotation in the back.
Diggs will likely be Texas' nickel corner, giving Turner and/or Thompson some viable time to shine.
