As it stands right now, there are more uncertainties than givens for this team. For instance, I'm quite confident in the defensive line. I think James Gayle and the gang have the potential to be among the top d-lines nationally. However, there are (depth) concerns in the linebacking corps and secondary. Cody Journell and A.J. Hughes will be the best battery of kicker and punter we've had in quite some time, but will the offense being good enough to play the field position game and consistently score touchdowns?
Spring football never really answers more than a few questions about a team. The same goes for August camp too. We won't really know what we have on our hands until sometime in late September or early October. That, in my opinion, is when the better teams really ramp up and play good football, and those destined to be bad, struggle.
So in my estimation, we're a long ways from knowing how this team will fare on the field. With that said, spring ball is right around the corner, and these are my five most important things I'd like to see the Hokies improve on in order to be serious contenders for Charlotte.
1. Better Offensive Line Play (Duh)
