Muschamp might like safeties

With closed practices it's hard to tell anything, but Muschamp did tell the Austin American-Statesman that Earl Thomas was the most productive safety during the spring.

"I think that we’ve got athleticism," Muschamp said. "We’ve got guys who can run vertically and judge the ball downfield, which is key. I think we’ve got guys who can tackle in space. I like our speed. We’ve got the tools."

Texas is young at the position because the coaches did not let any of the young guys get experience last year. Instead they played two seniors almost exclusively.

Muschamp won't make the same mistake.

"I’d rather be working with this than a bunch of experienced guys who can’t play."
