Spring Practice Review: Defense

Bud Foster and Charley Wiles (Ivan Morozov)

Virginia Tech got some good work done on the defensive side of the ball this spring. I was happy with the depth they appear to have built at linebacker and in the secondary, and while I’m still somewhat concerned about the defensive line, things should improve there in August.
