  What was expected to be a strength for Georgia Tech last season - the veteran-filled secondary - was not. Cornerback Tre Swilling expects that to change. "We have a lot of experience in playing from me, Zamari (Walton), Tariq (Carpenter), Juanyeh (Thomas), specifically," Swilling said Tuesday. "We've all started and played the last two or three years or more. I expect us to look like that. I expect us to look like we've been out there starting and playing, and we understand." Despite the fact that those four defensive backs - Swilling and Walton at cornerback, Carpenter and Thomas at the safety spots - were all returning starters last year, the Yellow Jackets did not always look like it in the secondary last season.

While statistics can be a crude measurement tool - an interception or incomplete pass can be as much the product of an effective pass rush as solid secondary play, and likewise a touchdown pass or completion can be the result of a slow pass rush or an ill-advised play call - the numbers don't paint a rosy picture for Tech's secondary play in 2020. Opponents had a 22/6 touchdown pass/interception ratio, poorest in the ACC. Tech had one pass defended (a breakup or an interception) for every 9.1 passes by the opposition, the second highest rate in the ACC. (Louisville had the lowest rate at 6.1.) - Atlanta Journal Constitution
