Virginia Tech will hold their annual spring football game on Saturday afternoon. While most positions are set on defense, there are still some questions that need to be answered
The Virginia Tech Hokies enter their annual spring game on Saturday afternoon looking to continue to shore up a defense that appears to be one of the best in all of college football heading into next season.
There are a handful of players on that side of the ball who will be regulars next season at their respective positions, who did not participate in the spring practices due to injuries.

The most prominent players missing include defensive end Trevon Hill, who will likely take over one of the two defensive end spots for Ken Ekanem (who graduated), as well as Mook Reynolds, who is going on his third year as the starting whip. Both Hill and Reynolds were not participants this spring due to maintenance surgeries in the offseason.
As such, there will be a couple of players to keep an eye on at their respective positions on Saturday, which I discuss in the video below. In addition, I comment on the progress of Reggie Floyd, who has made quite the impact at rover this spring.
While freshman 4-star Devon Hunter is likely primed for one of the safety spots next fall, he may have to pry the position away from a guy like Floyd, who has shown great ability in run defense, as well as an improved ability against the pass throughout his development this spring.
