One unit that has to improve this year for Virginia Tech is the offensive
line, which has been subpar for the last two years. This year the Hokie defense
will be younger and probably not as good as last year, so they won’t be able to
cover for an offense that isn’t capable of standing on its own two feet. The
offensive line has to step up. They have to be better, or it could be a long
season.

Curt Newsome loses just one player from last year’s line, starting left
tackle Duane Brown. Brown is a big loss, but everybody else on the line should
improve, and depth should be a lot better this year. Key word: should.
Nothing is guaranteed. Here’s a look at our pre-Spring depth chart for the
offensive line.
