Spring practices have begun and before you know it the spring games for all major college football programs will be upon us. Virginia Tech’s annual Maroon and White game will give fans and the media a chance to get a sneak peak at the 2012 Hokies.
The Hokies are returning of nine of their 11 defensive starters from last season, making them pretty much set on that side of the ball. The offense is another story; the only returning skill position starter is quarterback Logan Thomas. The offense lost four of five offensive linemen, an All-American running back and two record-setting wide receivers.
Virginia Tech’s spring game will give us our first glimpse of a slew of new starters on the offense. Many are young and inexperienced but a few are seasoned backups that will receive some well-earned playing time. The following is the predicted depth chart of the Hokies heading into the spring.
