A look forward: Linebackers

The Hokies have plenty of bodies at the inside linebacker spots, though it’s not quite clear who will be slotted at which position in some specific cases. As usual, injuries will factor in, but Bud Foster is hoping to establish his two-deep at mike and backer by the end of the spring.

Right now, there are more “backer like” prospects in the program than “mike like” players. As a result, a guy or two may have to play out of position just to even out the depth chart.

Note that the whip linebacker spot will be included in the defensive backs article.
