1) Who do you see being the big movers of spring practice on offense and defense? There are a lot of new faces at VT this spring and I see some depth changes coming.

Chris Coleman: Good question. With spring practice beginning in a month, it’s almost football time in Blacksburg, believe it or not. Players are currently in the middle of the winter strength and conditioning program, and the Hokies need some guys to step up at a couple of critical positions on each side of the ball.

Offensively, I’m looking at two spots: offensive line and wide receiver. Tech needs to find starters at center and right guard, and they need to find a replacement for slot receiver Willie Byrn. We’ll get our first look at some new guys this spring.
