C Beau Warren
About the only thing you fault Warren for is that opening snap fumble against Boise State. He's been Virginia Tech's most consistent linemen and is the lone member of the unit to grade out at higher than 80 percent in every game this season. He's got 31 knockdowns as well.
He's not a big talker, but Warren is in charge of identifying blitzers and calling out the rest of the line's assignments before every play. Newsome told me earlier this season, the fifth-year senior's experience in that department has been invaluable. It should also come in handy this week against Georgia Tech, which tries to disguise its blitzers and down linemen within its 3-4 scheme.
“From the first snap he takes to the first drill he does to the end of practice, you’re going to get his best effort," Newsome said of Warren. "And he’s a joy to coach because of that. You know what you’re getting. There’s no surprises, there’s no up and down in Beau.”
Warren's Grade: B+
