Virginia Tech Football: 3 Most Important Spring Practice Position Battles

Spring practice begins on March 27 for Virginia Tech, and just like every year there will be a number of position battles that will determine what happens on the field next fall.

Quarterback, of course, is the biggest position the Hokies must fill. Logan Thomas departs after three record-breaking, albeit, frustrating years. 

The Hokies must replace as many as seven starters on defense. Fortunately, cornerbacks Brandon Facyson and Kendall Fuller, both rising sophomores who played extensively last season, will step right in and not miss a beat with Kyle Fuller and Antone Exum heading to the NFL. 

But the transition won't be quite as seamless at other positions. James Gayle, Derrick Hopkins, Jack Tyler and Tariq Edwards leave Blacksburg with big shoes to fill.

Who's ready to fill those shoes?

Here's a look at the three biggest position battles to keep an eye on next month at spring practice.
