Can the secondary, which ranked second in the Big 12 in 2009 in pass defense, be even better despite the loss of consensus All-American safety Earl Thomas? Don’t bet against it.
Brown and defensive coordinator Will Muschamp definitely like this group.

Texas also has four safeties capable of starting — Christian Scott, Blake Gideon, Nolan Brewster and Kenny Vaccaro.
