In 2013, A.J. Derby served as the backup to starting quarterback Brandon Allen. A year later, it appears Derby is poised to be on the receiving end of Allen’s pass attempts.

It was revealed Thursday that Derby, entering his final season of eligibility, has been moved from quarterback to tight end. The move doesn’t appear to come because of Derby’s struggles at the position — wrote that “[t]he position switch came after Derby turned in one of his best scrimmage performances” — but rather the improvement of Austin Allen.
