Video: Arizona State head coach Todd Graham confident in his defense, especially the secondary

A major talking point regarding the 2014 edition of the Arizona State Sun Devils has been the fact that nine of 11 defensive starters from 2013's Pac-12 south championship squad are gone. That figure includes two-time Pat Tillman Defensive Player of the Year Will Sutton and Robert Nelson, whose six interceptions were tied for tops in the Pac-12 last year. 

Such a departure of talent and experience could be a problem for any team with legitimate conference title hopes. At Pac-12 Networks' Football Training Camp tour stop in Tempe on Tuesday, we learned that Sun Devils head coach Todd Graham is as confident as ever in his defense. For him, it all starts with the defensive backs. Watch coach Graham talk about who he believes will be lynchpins in the secondary and why he thinks 2014's defense will be as good or better than 2013's.
