Virginia Tech is one of a few schools around the country that promotes itself as “DBU”. Today we’ll continue our Pro Football Focus ratings series by focusing on the Hokies’ cornerbacks during the PFF era (2014-20).
I’m in disagreement with PFF over who they consider to be cornerbacks in some cases. For example, PFF considers Chamarri Conner to be a nickel corner, and to them that’s the same as a regular outside corner. I disagree with that, and thus Conner (and other nickels/whips) won’t be included in this article. I consider them to be closer to Tech’s free safety position than a true corner, so they’ll be included in next week’s article on the safeties in the PFF era.
I used a 100-snap minimum for this article, and I included the top 20 players. Note that Brion Murray played over 100 snaps for the Hokies in 2019, but only 78 of those snaps came at a true cornerback position, so his 2019 season is not included in the rankings. Also note that while Terrell Edmunds is most remembered for his play at rover and free safety for the Hokies, he spent his redshirt freshman season as a full-time outside corner, thus his 2015 season is included in the cornerback rankings.
