Overview

Virgil was a productive, two-year starter for the Hokies. He was banged up in this senior season, which limited his overall effectiveness. He has adequate size and good athleticism. He has the foot quickness, lateral agility and balance to be an effective defender at the next level but doesn't have great pure speed to play out on an island. He can be inconsistent with his footwork to transition quickly out of his backpedal. He is a willing run-support defender but is inconsistent in block protection as well as in wrapping up effectively. Virgil is a solid football player but has limitations which likely will relegate him to a core special teams role or a spot as a nickel back in passing situations.


Strengths

Virgil has a good first step and the lateral agility to make plays in zone coverage. High-points the ball well and deflects balls he cannot catch. Reads fast, fills hard and does not shy away from contact in run support.

Weaknesses

Does not have the size or top-end speed to play on an island at the next level. Gives too much of a cushion in off-man coverage and is susceptible to double moves. Takes too many false steps and loses speed in transition. Struggled to stay healthy and on the field in college.

Grade

2.6
