As with most other positions on the defensive side of the ball, Virginia Tech returns a lot of experience at linebacker. That includes an All-ACC caliber player manning the mike spot, and it also includes what appears to be quality depth.

Take a look at the snap counts for Virginia Tech’s top three linebackers…

Rayshard Ashby (5-10, 245, Sr.): 1,574
Dax Hollifield (6-1, 239, Jr.): 1,206
Alan Tisdale (6-3, 210, r-So.): 308
Total snaps: 3,088
