2012 Football Preview: Defensive Line

Two words come to mind when describing Virginia Tech’s 2012 defensive line: big and versatile.  The Hokies are going to be very deep up front this season.  They’ve got a lot of big players at all the defensive line positions, and they’ve got several guys who can play inside and outside.

Even with Dadi Nicholas currently suspended, Tech has plenty of depth up front.  Nearly all of it is experienced as well.

Corey Marshall , Zack McCray and Justin Taylor are three guys who will possibly play end and tackle this season.  For the purposes of this article, I’m going to list them at the position where I believe they will primarily play.  For example, I think McCray will spend most of his time at defensive tackle, so I’m not going to talk about him much in the defensive end section.
