Darrisaw started all 34 games of his career over the last three seasons. He is projected as a first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, with ESPN, CBS Sports, WalterFootball.com and TheDraftNetwork.com all predicting him to go anywhere from No. 15 to No. 26.

As a high school senior in the 2017 recruiting class, Darrisaw was a low 3-star recruit ranked as the No. 30 overall prospect in Maryland and the No. 171 offensive tackle prospect in the nation by the 247Sports Composite rankings.

Darrisaw committed to Virginia Tech in November of 2016, prepped at Fork Union Military Academy in the fall of 2017, and re-signed with Virginia Tech as part of the 2018 recruiting class. In January of 2018 he enrolled at Virginia Tech and quickly advanced into the starting lineup for his true freshman season in 2018.

Darrisaw has had an outstanding junior season, grading out as the No. 2 offensive tackle in the country per Pro Football Focus (PFF) and the No. 2 offensive lineman overall.

  1. I feel like CD was one of the most underappreciated Hokies of all time and flew under your average fan’s radar because of all the drama and bad news coming out of the program thanks to Fuente since 2018ish. Well that, and being a 0.500 team doesn’t get you much attention. Tis a shame, but thankfully CD is not under the radar of NFL scouts and he will be handsomely rewarded for all his hard work and dedication.

  2. The Offensive Line has gotten decimated but at least Darrisaw is moving on the way a fan should hope every player moves on, with class and to the NFL. Hopefully, he has a long productive & lucrative career.

  3. It’s great to see a quality young man be rewarded for his hard work and dedication. Go get ’em CD. Hokies everywhere will be watching.

  4. Congratulations to a amazing Hokie! Will be supporting you in the future and come back to see us often! Good luck to a great young man! I know your parents are proud!๐Ÿˆ๐Ÿˆ

  5. Congratulations to a great young man! Hard working, passionate, humble & ownership. He is going to be a dominant force in the NFL. For all the negative fans & players that want to say players are not developed under this staff…how do you explain Christian? He is a likely 1st round draft choice & a top offensive lineman in the class. He is one of the top 32 players in the entire country.

    1. I will explain it like this….CD gets the credit because CD did the work to exploit the talent the man upstairs gave him. The OL is the one unit on the team that combined talent, drive/hard work and some good coaching by VV to excel relative to the rest of the team. That is NOT the norm on Fuente’s teams. He knows it, the players know it, and by now you should know it too.

  6. What a wonderful tribute to his coaches, co-players, and the Hokie community. Good luck in the draft CD!!!

  7. Thanks Christian for the LOVE. Enjoyed the bulldozer & full tilt runs. Hope you have a long NFL career & will follow you wherever you land. Always a HOKIE myself ’66.

  8. Super happy for the Kid. What a great story ! Christian goes into the history books as one of the best offensive lineman in Tech History !

    Good for you !
