We've included this as a group because each of the three players on the interior of the offensive line, right guard Andrew Miller, center David Wang and left guard Caleb Farris, have all started before. Albeit, at different positions.
Considering how well the Hokies ran the ball overall and that Thomas had little pressure up the middle, this group played well. It will be interesting to watch them moving forward. All three players have taken to the position changes well and all bring considerable experience to the offense.
These three players will be important for McLaughlin. Teams will try to load up against the left side of the Hokies' offense because they want to test McLaughlin. The experience of these three, especially the center, Wang, will be important in making sure McLaughlin understands all of the line calls.
The failure to develop a consistent running game overall, though, knocks their grade down just a bit in Saturday's contest.
Final Grade: C+
