A look forward: Defensive backs

Virginia Tech has a ton of talented, versatile defensive backs. That makes projecting their positions somewhat difficult. However, that’s one of the reasons Torrian Gray is such a successful coach. He recruits versatile players who can line up in multiple spots so he can always get his best 4-5 guys on the field.

This spring, Gray will have to replace starting safeties Detrick Bonner and Kyshoen Jarrett. Even though both guys could end up being drafted, I don’t believe that replacing them will be a huge issue.

It’s really hard to break down the secondary on a position-by-position basis simply because there are so many guys who could play multiple spots, and we don’t know how the initial depth chart will look. Instead, I’ll talk about each player individually and the spots he could potentially play.
