Baylor's secondary could be deeper and much improved in 2015.
Junior safety Taion Sells was impressive for the second straight week as the Bears held their final scrimmage of the spring behind closed doors on Saturday. The junior finished with a team-high eight tackles, according to the Waco Tribune. Sells' performance came on the heels of a four-tackle, one-interception performance in Baylor's Friday Night Spring showcase on March 20.
Sells had just five tackles in seven games played as a sophomore in 2014, so even with his impressive spring showing, he will have to continue to prove he can be a playmaker with a consistent summer and fall camp before we can slot him as a key part of the Bears' secondary.
With Orion Stewart and Terrell Burt returning as starters, it would be huge for the Bears to have players such as Sells show they can come into the lineup with minimal drop-off in the fall. That would amp-up the overall competition at safety while allowing Baylor to keep fresh defensive backs in the lineup at all times.
