Default Stephan Virgil



I'm pimping my boy Stephan Virgil right now with the 146th Pick the Pittsburgh Steelers should draft the guy.

12/24/09 - For the second straight season, Virginia Tech's football team will be missing a starter for its bowl game because of academic issues. Senior cornerback Stephan Virgil has been ruled academically eligible under NCAA guidelines for the Hokies' match-up against Tennessee in the Dec. 31 Chick-fil-A Bowl in Atlanta. It's a tough finish to a difficult season for Virgil. After playing well in Tech's 34-24 loss to Alabama in the Sept. 5 season opener in Atlanta, Virgil injured his left knee making a tackle on the game's final play. The injury kept him out of the lineup for the Hokies' next two games. Virgil, the Hokies' most experienced cornerback, returned to start the final nine regular-season games. Following the Hokies' regular-season finale against Virginia on Nov. 28, he had the knee "cleaned" in minor arthroscopic surgery. Virgil made 36 tackles in 10 games, including a secondary-leading six stops for loss, including a sack. He recovered two fumbles and had one interception. With Virgil sidelined, the Hokies are expected to start sophomore Eddie Whitley at the field corner position against the Vols. Whitley, who is listed on Tech's bowl depth chart as the backup to free safety Kam Chancellor, made his first college start Sept. 19 against Nebraska. - Randy King, The Roanoke Times.

Your guys thought on this future gem and ballhawking cornerback.

I would like the Steelers to pick up this guy in the 6-7 rounds....He seems to be a sure tackler and he has pretty good size to be a CB....The thing that I don't like is that he was academically ineligible for VT bowl game....I don't know if the Steelers would like to invest a mid round pick on a guy who can't even keep his academics straight....that just tells me that he might not be very smart....although being smart and football smart is totally different....but still I would want to take a chance on him in the later rounds...preferably the 6th or the 7th round.....
