Week One Spring Practice Discussion Thread

TSL's David Cunningham reported out the following pseudo-depth chart from practice this AM.

Some immediate reactions:

1) Corner depth is scary. Cotman and Phillips are getting early looks in the secondary because of injuries and departures from the program. It is a little frustrating that Dante Lovett (in my opinion, the highest upside DB recruit in this class) Cam Fleming, and Braylon Johnson didn't enroll early. They would have a very good opportunity to showcase themselves with more reps than most freshmen would get in their first spring camp. I think Cotman ultimately grows out of the position, so right now, the Hokies have three true corners.

2) This is a big spring for Burgos and Moyston. It feels like the coaches hold Burgos in higher regard, but I think Moyston has the most upside. While he had some real ugly reps, every now and then he would make a play that would cause you to stand up. He has to figure out how to be more consistent, but if there is a guy I could see becoming an all ACC guy in the DE group, it is Moyston. But, he better have a good spring because Payne and Jeannette will factor in when fall comes around.

3) Who is stepping up as that fourth defensive tackle? I was underwhelmed with Madison's reps late in the year. I saw Givens in person in high school, and until I see otherwise, if he has a P5 future, it will be on offensive line. Law is a complete mystery. Pene was the fourth DT last season, and despite adding size got pushed around. He seems like he lost a lot of explosiveness when he bulked up.

4) Shew... do they need offensive tackles and centers.

I told him Iโ€™d crawl on my hands and knees to be the DL coach at Virginia Tech. Now, all of a sudden, Iโ€™m sitting in this chair and I told him Iโ€™d still crawl on my hands and knees to work here. I just want to be here.
