Mississippi State 2013 Impact Players: No. 20, Jamerson Love

Grant Halverson

The Mississippi State secondary has undergone a massive overhaul since last season. With two cornerbacks gone in the second round of the NFL draft, Jamerson Love will have large shoes to fill in the 2013 season.

Playing in a backup role for most of 2012, Jamerson Love still managed to put up solid statistics for the Mississippi State Bulldogs. In all, he totaled 25 tackles, two pass break-ups, and an interception while playing in 12 games, including starts against Tennessee and Texas A&M.

Projected as a starter opposite Justin Cox, Love will be asked to continue his trend of production in 2013.  With a defensive front that will be expected to generate heat on opposing quarterbacks, Love will need to not only defend passes, but find ways to snag interceptions on errant throws. The biggest challenge he will face is replacing the production of Darius Slay, a second round draft pick to the Detroit Lions.

Having started two games in 2012 should make the transition from backup to starter easier for Love as he has had to prepare to start games before in his career.  Sitting behind him on the depth chart is former Clinton Arrow Cedric Jiles.

Love missed the 2012 season opener for violating team rules.  While that may raise a red flag for some, Love stayed out of trouble for the rest of the season.
