    On Alabama quarterback Jalen Milroe:

    “He’s a very good quarterback. He mans their offense very well. He leads their team very well. The offense plays very well with him and through him. He’s just a very good quarterback. He understands where he wants to go with the ball. He understands how to read coverages and defenses. It’s going to be a great challenge having to play against him this week.”

    On improving the Georgia run defense:

    “We have to start playing for each other, playing more connected. You could tell last week on the film that we weren’t playing as connected as we usually do, so going back to our core DNA traits.”

    On improving his own game:

    “I can improve in every aspect of my game. Whether it’s press man, off coverage, zone or anything like that. I really try to pride myself on trying to be the best version of myself. Trying to do whatever I can to help our team out.”

    “Whether that’s me being in man coverage or whether that’s me being off, I want to do what I can. If that’s me denying a man the ball, that’s what I’m going to do to the best of my ability.”
