New Rams FB Sam Rogers, from Ashville, Virginia, grew up watching the Redskins, where Sean McVay was a coach. "They use versatile guys, guys that can do a lot of different things, and I feel like I fit that mold pretty well. It's an honor to be a Ram right now."

Remember when the Vikings pursued Jared Cook in free agency? They wanted another tight end who could do damage over the middle of the field, and they'll hope Bucky Hodges can help improve their passing game in a similar manner. The converted quarterback will need to refine his route-running skills in the NFL, but his physical traits (6-foot-6, a 4.57-second 40 and a 39-inch vertical leap) make him worth a look.

With their final pick of the 2017 draft, the Ravens select Virginia Tech safety Chuck Clark in the sixth round. He's a physical, three-year starter in college who projects to be a special teams player in the NFL. Baltimore needed to add depth at safety behind Eric Weddle and Tony Jefferson.

I don't go into it with a preconceived date or notion about who should start or what day we should declare a starter."

Justin Fuente says he views his 3 QBs as essentially even right now. "They all bring unique qualities ... but it's not like we're repping different types of offense." Fuente said he's been impressed with freshman Hendon Hooker but needs to see continued growth by fall camp. He also said he's in no rush to name a starter.
Virginia Tech kicker Joey Slye has been the driving force behind a charitable foundation formed by his parents to honor his late brother, A.J.

Virginia Tech is currently sitting at No. 21 in the ESPN class rankings for 2018. That is the highest ranking at this time in the process since the 2014 class when the Hokies were ranked No. 14 overall.

Virginia Tech will once again have a great defense under D-coordinator Bud Foster. The Hokies' back seven will be particularly strong, but the front four is a concern.
There weren't special rules for quarterbacks at many schools in the ACC this spring, as coaches want to see how their QBs fare under game conditions.
