Justin Hamilton will have a very experienced defense at Virginia Tech this year. (Jon Fleming)

1) Do you get the feeling J-Ham’s defense could take a huge step forward?  Everything starts up front, and the number of snaps/experience on the defensive line is high. With the addition of Jordan Williams and the emergence of Barno, VT has an impact guy up front.  LBs have talented guys in Connor and Tisdale, and now Dax can move over to his natural position. There should be no surprise if he improves at LB as he settles into the Mike spot. Corners return a much healthier Waller, a future star in Strong (plus Chatman back). Safeties have who I think is VT’s next NFL safety in Keonta Jenkins. Plus an experienced Devin Taylor and the appearance of JR Walker. Fuente assembled a reasonably impressive defensive staff that now has a full offseason to develop his guys and install his system. Improvement coming for that
