1) With the concerns about defensive tackle depth, what are the odds that Wyatt Teller makes the 2nd string?


Wyatt Teller

Chris Coleman: He’ll have his shot, but I don’t think it’s a great shot at this point in time.  Teller is a big, physical and aggressive player who relied on his brute strength and toughness on the field to dominate at the high school level.  He won’t have that luxury at the college level.

Teller is a bit of a bull in a china shop.  I don’t know if he has bad technique or not, simply because he really didn’t bother to try and use technique in high school.  He didn’t need to.  He just ran over guys to get into the backfield.  That makes it tough to tell how quickly he’ll adapt to the technique taught by Charley Wiles at Virginia Tech.  Maybe it will come naturally and quickly, or maybe he’ll need some time to adjust.
