Since player development has been a hot topic recently, I wanted to use this week’s Inside the Numbers article to point out a position where Virginia Tech’s players have developed at a very impressive rate. Also, for the first time this season we’ll take a look at some traditional stats in which the Hokies have made vast improvements.
Improved Virginia Tech Cornerbacks
I want to begin today’s article by discussing the improvements that Virginia Tech’s cornerbacks have made since last season, and we’ll start with Caleb Farley’s numbers…
2018 PFF Rating: 57.3
2019 PFF Rating: 71.7
2018 Completion Rate: 32-of-54, 59.3%
2019 Completion Rate: 9-of-21, 42.9%
Keep in mind that last season Farley had to start before he was ready, he hardly ever played defense in high school, and he was coming off a torn ACL. Considering how raw he is, his development is progressing nicely.
