Iowa State defensive coordinator Jon Heacock says he is focused on improvement and not experience.
The Cyclones return nearly their entire defense from last year’s unit that ranked second in the Big 12.
Heacock says its not good enough to have the same players back.
Heacock says a focus on fundamentals this spring is a way those veteran players can get better.
Heacock hopes All American defensive end JaQuan Bailey and safety Lawrence White get a chance to make an NFL roster. Both players hope to be taken in this week’s draft.
