Tight end is expected to be a strength of the Virginia Tech offense in 2015. The Hokies have three players with experience, and Scot Loeffler loves to get the tight ends involved in the passing game.
Note that Virginia Tech has not put a depth chart online (their depth chart link loads a chart from last spring). They gave the media a two-deep on Friday, which we included in this article, but we have no idea what the rest of the depth chart looks like. We won’t even know when there are changes to the depth chart. Information control is in full effect.
Therefore, these position previews that I’m writing will include depth charts, but anything past the two-deep will be nothing more than an educated on guess on my part.
Here’s my educated guess on the tight end depth chart…
Those top three guys will play a major role this year, and it’s possible that Xavier Burke could play as well in a blocking role. I decided to include Bucky Hodges with the tight ends only because that’s what he’s listed as on the roster and depth chart. In reality he’s nothing more than a big wide receiver who can be lined up in a lot of ways.
