LEXINGTON, Ky. – Among the most pressing questions facing Kentucky football entering the 2015 season was how the Wildcats would replace NFL draft picks Bud Dupree and Za’Darius Smith.UK DE Jason Hatcher puts on the pressure during the first half of the University of Kentucky – Auburn football game at Commonwealth Stadium in Lexington, Ky., on Thursday, October 15, 2015.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration Time 0:00Loaded: 0%0:00Progress: 0%0:00 Progress: 0%Stream TypeLIVERemaining Time -0:00 Playback Rate1ChaptersChaptersdescriptions off, selectedDescriptionssubtitles off, selectedSubtitlescaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedCaptionsAudio TrackFullscreenThis is a modal window.

It’s something we’ve been talking about quite a bit in the last couple of weeks.”Dupree and Smith combined for 20 tackles for loss and 12 sacks last season. In the first two years of the Mark Stoops era, the duo combined for 36 tackles for loss and 25 sacks.This season, Kentucky is tied for 12th in the Southeastern Conference in sacks (13) and last in the league in tackles for loss (37).Q&A: Stoops wants UK to enjoy football againThe Wildcats’ 1.44 sacks per game would be the team’s lowest average since 2009. The team’s 4.11 tackles for loss per game would be the squad’s lowest average since at least 2003, the first year statistics were available.Of Kentucky’s 13 sacks this season, just 2.5 have come from defensive ends or outside linebackers. In place of the outside pass-rushing threat presented by Dupree and Smith, defensive coordinator D.J. Eliot has had to be creative in where he puts pressure on the quarterback.“Some of our blitzes have different guys coming and different guys dropping,” Eliot said. “Different guys are isolated at different times. We’ve had more inside linebackers involved rushing the quarterback than we have in the past. It’s something we’re working on every week.”Senior middle linebacker Josh Forrest leads Kentucky with 3.5 sacks and 5.5 tackles for loss through nine games. Senior defensive tackle C.J. Johnson is the only other player on the roster with multiple sacks this season.UK Practice Report | Dawson has plan for QBDuring Kentucky’s current four-game losing streak, the team defense has totaled three sacks and been credited with just two quarterback hurries.While Kentucky was not credited with a sack or a hurry in a 27-3 loss at Georgia, Stoops said he actually saw improvement in the pass rush in Athens.“Cory (C.J.) Johnson had some really good rushes inside that helped us at times last week,” Stoops said. “We’ve certainly worked on that quite a bit and emphasized that the past couple weeks, of developing some of your guys and developing into better pass rushers.”Stoops pointed to a lack of third-and-long situations for opposing offenses where the defense knows a pass is coming as contributing to the low sack total.“We haven’t been great the past couple weeks of getting people off balance,” he said. “They’ve been able to get efficient yards on first and second down, and we haven’t had them in predictable situations.”Sign up to get more like this free in your inbox The absence of junior outside linebacker Jason Hatcher, who was suspended for the first two games of 2015 then was limited in Kentucky’s last three games with an ankle injury, has also factored in the drop in sacks. Hatcher is expected to be close to 100 percent against Vanderbilt, and his return will likely alter Kentucky’s game plan on third-down passing situations, Buh said.“I think to have him back would give us some more depth and give us some more speed at that outside linebacker/defensive end spot,” Eliot said. “I think he’s close.”Kentucky has also spent extra reps in recent practices trying to develop some of its young pass rushers.Redshirt freshman outside linebacker Denzil Ware, who has started eight games this season, is tied for second on the team with five tackles for loss but has just one sack. Freshman outside linebacker Josh Allen has one tackle in nine games but has seen his role increase in recent weeks.“We’re really liking how he’s developing,” Buh said of Allen. “He’s going to be a good one.”Practice Report: UK keeping practice physicalKentucky’s schedule will likely help boost the team’s sack total as well over the final three games. Vanderbilt ranks 73rd nationally in sacks allowed. Charlotte ranks 125th and Louisville ranks 127th of 128 teams in that category.Even with the schedule easing up, it will take time for any Kentucky player to approach the production of Dupree and Smith.“You weren’t gonna fill Bud’s and you weren’t gonna fill Z’s shoes,” Eliot said. “You just weren’t. Those guys were seniors. Those guys were very talented players that had played a lot of reps. We didn’t expect somebody to step up and fill their shoes. Those are special players that had a lot of experience for us and played a lot of plays.”Email Jon Hale at [email protected] . Follow him on Twitter @JonHale_CJ .
