Pick 1 player on O (no QB) and 1 player on D who are most crucial this year

O - Herbert
D - Hunter

If Herbert is as good as advertised, we'll be able to establish a running game (in addition to King) that can bring us back the old brand of VT football that we once had. It will also open up the passing game, which HH is certainly capable of leading. Herbert seems to have already been given the keys to the backfield, so I'm really hoping he's a guy that can give us *minimum* 80 yards per game or so.

Hunter takes over for Reggie Floyd. Floyd blew coverage multiple times per game, but he was an anchor for the defense and a sure tackler. His football IQ was incredibly high. It's not going to be easy to replace him. What we've seen from Devon Hunter so far in his career has been a big YIKES. He couldn't read coverages, he left players wide open, he couldn't tackle, he was a penalty was rough. Hamilton is really high on him, though, and I have a feeling Hamilton can evaluate Hunter better than we can. We need Hunter to be good...really good. With Farley, Conner, and Waller being All-ACC type talent, Hunter will see a lot of passes. Nobody's throwing near those three. Physically, he has the tools. Let's see if he puts it together.
