Hokies In The NFL Draft
Farley was the No. 22 overall pick in the 2021 NFL draft.
Reed had a strong year for the Hokies in 2020.
Hewitt was a three-year starter for the Hokies.
Herbert went later than I expected.
Deablo was Virginia Tech’s lone player selected on Friday night.
Darrisaw went one pick after Caleb Farley.
Farley went No. 22 overall.
Farley is still expected to go in the first round of the NFL draft.
Farley was once considered a lock for a top-10 pick.
Farley covered a number of topics.
Farley should not drop out of the first round.
Will Farley fall out of the first round?
Could Farley really fall out of the first round despite being an elite talent?
Herbert discussed his pro day and his time in Blacksburg.
31 NFL teams were represented in Blacksburg.
Zach Hicks does an outstanding job at Stampede Blue, the SB Nation site covering the NFL’s Indianapolis Colts.
Of course this will not be the traditional combine.
Virginia Tech’s lone daft pick for 2020 was Dalton Keene who was surprisingly picked in the late third round by the New England Patriots. The UDFA results will trickle in.
As proof of the Championship Talent Formula, Let’s look at the 1st round of last night’s NFL 2020 Draft. It was an interesting if boring and predictable walk. The production was awful, but the results enlightening in regard to the Twilight program issue.
We take this dive out of the Twilight series, and having finished up the NFL Draft article to visit the single biggest recruiting disappointment for the Hokies. We have exactly one player considered for the draft, and he should still be in the program.
Well, let’s look at the biggest and most important factor in the long term success of a college football program. Money... I mean Pro Football.,, and the NFL Draft. The XFL is still a very secondary player and will unlikely be a big issue, but for the big programs with long term Championship designs, the NFL is king.
There are lots of things going on in the Virginia Tech sports world. Wrestling is now in tournament mode, waiting. The Women’s basketball team is reaching the regular season end with the penultimate game tonight vs. Duke. Football Spring Practice is rapidly approaching. And MORE! GO HOKIES!!!
No Hokies to be seen, but lots of odd, strange, and inscrutable choices along with mostly predictable ones. Tonight is rounds 2 and 3. I don’t hold out much hope for seeing any Hokies, yet. But with this draft, you never know.
The chances for a Virginia Tech Hokie Draft pick are pretty slim for the early rounds, this time. 2018 wasn’t a great year, and the eligible player list is pretty short. Let’s take a look, but don’t hold your breath. Maybe Saturday.
The #LPD #DBU crew is down by two. It rhymes but it isn’t too funny. Adonis Alexander leaves the program which was not unexpected, but Jeremy Webb, the promising JUCO transfer gets a medical redshirt (which is not what the coaches wanted).
It looks like Brandon Facyson will be the last of the 2018 Hokie draft class to come off the board (there are always possibilities but for now, this is the last tweet from VT_Football. GO Brandon! GO HOKIES!!!
It’s NFL Draft Weekend, and as promised we’ve got some coverage planned. First’ we’ve got predictions from some of the staff. As things keep going and writers can report in, we’ll update the article.
