The secondary shone in 11-on-11 play, making four interceptions during the morning session. That included a spectacular, leaping pick of a Brian St. Pierre pass by free agent Grant Mason (Michigan). Fittingly, the session ended with an interception by free agent cornerback Jovon Johnson (Iowa). This prompted much celebrating among the defensive backs.
“They say it’s contagious,” said cornerback Ike Taylor. “Hopefully, we can keep it going. … It’s hard for us to make plays, so when we do, we have to celebrate a little bit.”
