Virginia Tech has a surplus of quarterbacks but the Hokies are running empty on receivers. Expected starter Brandon Dilliard ruptured his right Achilles tendon in workouts, according to the Roanoke Times, and will miss the season.
The ACC champs have to replace their top four receivers from 2007. Quarterbacks Tyrod Taylor and Sean Glennon could be throwing to former quarterbacks. Converted throwers Ike Whitaker and Cory Holt top the depth chart. Plus, former QB Greg Boone will start at tight end.
The Hokies are missing their leading rusher from the past two seasons as well yet are the overwhelming choice to win the pathetic Coastal Division.
