CLEVELAND, OH (WVUE) -

Alex Anzalone may have only played 18 games at Florida but he was on campus for four seasons and credits the defensive school he got with the Gators for his smooth transition to the NFL.

"There's a lot of carryover from college to coach Allen's defense and then being here during OTAs and Minicamp and now Training Camp. I think that has helped me progress a lot as a player. I still have a lot to get better at, just have to keep improving."

The Saints defense kept the Browns from gaining a single first down in the first quarter of Thursday night's preseason contest and Anzalone was one of several linebackers who featured prominently, registering four tackles in limited playing time.

    The AP preseason poll came out today, and of course Alabama is No. 1. I'm going to breakdown a few teams in my Top 25. This is the 9th year I'm doing an AP poll. Fist off, no shock, I have the Tide in the top spot. Jalen Hurts, Tua Tagovailoa, doesn't matter who's at QB. Week one they play Louisville in Orlando. Right now they're only 24-point favorites. Georgia holds No. 2 in my poll. Another year of Jake Fromme under center is a great reason to have the Dawgs here. South Carolina ...more>>
