TSL Roundtable: Who has impressed you the most?

Who’s impressed you the most through two games, and why?

Jack Tyler

Tafkam Hokie: I’ve got four nominees that immediately come to mind.

Jack Tyler appears to be a legit, playmaking linebacker.  It seems that the majority of the time in Bud Foster’s system, the defensive playmakers are the defensive ends and the defensive backs, with the tackles and linebackers being more workmanlike role players who have less flashy responsibilities.  But Tyler is a disruptive force through the first two games, and seems to have a real knack for being in the right place at the right time.

My next two are the Fullers.  With Exum hurt, the personnel shuffling in the secondary, and the necessity of playing a true freshman (albeit a 5-star recruit), I had my concerns regarding the defensive secondary through the early part of the season.  The Fullers are giving us some outstanding defensive back play right out of the gate, and that really gives Bud Foster a lot of options with how he attacks the line of scrimmage.
