3. Kyron Drones has a very bright future as QB1 in Blacksburg
Ok, so this not be any breaking news, however, you could make the case that one of the reasons why the Hokies are bowl-eligible is because of the play of Drones.
The Baylor transfer stepped into the starting spot in Week 3 at Rutgers and he has taken advantage of his opportunity. It was not the best start for him, but after road losses to the Scarlet Knights and Marshall, he has been very impressive in the ACC games.
Offensive coordinator Tyler Bowen figured out in the first two games how to best use Drones and since then, the Virginia Tech offense has taken off. As the season went along, the passing game with Drones has evolved into a strength of the Hokies. He had a strong second half against North Carolina State last weekend and he carried that confidence into this weekend against Virginia.
Drones is a dual threat and tough to bring down when he’s running the ball and the Cavaliers’ defense found that out Saturday. You can’t tackle him high and if you try, he’ll run you over. Even more impressive is his decision-making lately and how well he throws the ball, both short and long. The future is bright under center in Blacksburg.
