Anthony Alford says he doesn’t consider himself a natural quarterback, but his athleticism has made up for that throughout his career.
He’s learning the system and settling into his role as a safety as he sits out his transfer year from Southern Miss.
Defensive coordinator Dave Wommack calls Alford the best athlete on the team and a guy who can really help in the secondary when his time comes in 2014.
This week Alford is helping on the scout team by giving the defense a good look at the mobility of Auburn quarterback Nick Marshall.
There haven’t been a lot of called runs for Marshall, though that could change at any given time. Until then Marshall still has the ability to improvise and make things tough on a defense.
