Defense makes progress

Virginia Tech is expected to have a strong defense in 2013, though Bud Foster and his staff did go into the spring with some question marks.  Today we’ll take a look at the performance of the defense this spring, and see if those question marks were addressed.

The biggest questions of the spring revolved around the field corner spot, overall depth in the secondary, depth at linebacker, and depth at defensive tackle.  All of Tech’s starting positions, with the exception of field corner, were in good hands when the spring began.

In some ways, I feel a lot better about the defense right now than I did at the beginning of the spring.  In another way, I don’t feel quite so good.

Defensive Tackle depth could be lacking
