Bucky Hodges & Logan Thomas
Deon Clarke & Xavier Adibi
Joel Caleb & Marcus Davis
Kendall Fuller & DeAngelo Hall
*I have never seen any of the guys who have not played for VT yet in person. In no way am I saying they are the exact same players as the former Hokies but they are simply what popped into my mind when looking at measurables. I have extremely high Hopes for Joel this upcoming year. While he played QB in
1 ) similar size , both known more for their athleticism then being a polished qb
2 ) similar size. i believe adibi contributed as a true freshmen so hard to compare. i think both have similar athleticism and both are known as big ihtters.
3) similar size, marcus is much faster
4) no one is touching dhall's speed. i don't see kendall making nearly as many big plays as hall, but i can see him being a consistent lockdown guy as opposed to dhall who gave up some plays to make the big play. d hall was also a special teams star and i don't think kendall will be that for us.
Bucky isn't necessarily polished, but he has far more experience at QB than Logan did. A few years of Lefty's coaching will only widen that gap.
I disagree about Kendall... he was named Offensive Player of the Year after all, and I see no reason he can't be a big time special teams contributor for us.
Adibi didn't play as a true frosh, although he came very close and probably should have.
I think Joel is going to be better with the ball in his hands than MD was. Although MD was much faster, sometimes it seemed like he went down easy. He never seems like a natural football player. Joel seems like more of a big strong receiver who can turn on a dime and make big plays. I think he has better hands than MD too.
so do we joel caleb being an alshon jeffrey type?
haha ok, i think somebody hacked my 247 account because I NEVER put those two pics on the bottom of my prof lol
well now they're gone....there was a picture of a turtle and a wrestler lol
Kendal is fast, but didnt Hall run 4.28 at the combine?
So in other words, joel blocks right? Please God i pray he does. Marcus was good but refused to block
I was thinking Anquan Boldin or Roddy White. Big, though not extremely tall, physical WR.
