Blog – MSU linebacker position analysis (with video)

Geoff Collins is hoping to use 8-10 guys in the linebacking position this fall.

The Mississippi State defensive coordinator and linebackers coach has one of the deepest positions on the Bulldog team.

“I’m just very lucky to have the group of guys that I have,” Collins said. “Coach (Matt) Balis and Coach (Dan) Mullen have set the standard for this program, and I think the group of guys in my room, embody everything that this program stands for. Relentless effort, competitiveness, great attitude and getting better every day. I couldn’t be more proud of the guys that I get to coach every day.”

On Saturday we caught up with Collins, junior Matthew Wells, sophomore Benardrick McKinney, redshirt freshman Richie Brown and redshirt freshman Beniquez Brown.

The unofficial depth chart:

LB – Matthew Wells, Jr., Zach Jackson, So.

LB – Benardrick McKinney, So., Ferlando Bohanna, Jr.

LB – Deontae Skinner, Sr., Beniquez Brown, RFr.

Along with these six guys you have redshirt freshman Richie Brown, junior Ivan Muniz, redshirt freshman DeAndre Ward and true freshman Dezmond Harris.
