This one is tough.
For the last few years, Miami has struggled stopping the pass, and has had really bad defensive backs. Even to a point where the Hurricanes moved wide receivers and other position players to cornerback.
They look good at times, and have seven interceptions already. Miami had nine total last year.
I do believe they have one of the best cornerbacks in the country in Brandon Harris.
Harris has been the cement to the defensive backfield for three years now. Last year, he was one of the country's leaders in pass deflections.
Although those numbers are down this year, it's more due to the fact that he is well-known and no one even throws his way anymore.
Harris has 22 tackles and one sack.
The brightest star, and one who misses the most tackles, is safety Ray Ray Armstrong. He leads the defensive backs in tackles (31) and interceptions (2), in which one of them was a pick six.
The problem with Ray Ray is he is the last line of defense, and misses a lot of tackles. The bright side to this, if there is one, is that another player had the same problem when he came here: Sean Taylor.
We know how good of a player he ended up being, and I believe next year, Ray Ray will evolve in to a Taylor-type player.
Another big success story is the other safety, Vaughn Telemaque. He is a punishing hitter who was all over the field against the Seminoles this year.
Telemaque has 23 tackles, one interception, and one fumble recovery.
The other starter at cornerback is Ryan Hill who has 12 tackles, 1.5 tackles for loss, and two interceptions this year.
At corner, DeMarcus Van Dyke and Brandon McGee have combined for 17 tackles and one interception.
Armstrong and Telemaque's backups are JoJo Nichols, Kacy Rogers, and Jared Campbell, respectively.
