Defensive Ends

Depth at defensive end has to be a concern for 2006 since Tech only has two
recruited players – Noland Burchette and Chris Ellis – returning. After
spring practice Tech awarded another scholarship to walk-on Orion Martin, but
depth at defensive end remains a major concern. The Hokies needed to sign three
defensive ends in this class – one weak-side end with some size; one
strong-side rush end (Stud in Tech’s system) with good speed to rush off of
the edge; and one hybrid end with the size and speed to play both positions. At
a minimum Tech needed to sign a strong-side and weak-side end, or Tech would
have to move a player to defensive end to provide depth. Here are the defensive
ends that Tech offered last year:
