We’re nearly a quarter of the way through the NFL season, and with week four under wraps, here’s how former Hokies fared in the pros.

SKILL POSITIONS:

Logan Thomas, Washington Commanders

Thomas had a quiet first game back since suffering a concussion against Denver in Philadelphia, as he hauled in three receptions on three targets for 41 yards. There was this funny moment between Thomas and Terrell Edmunds, though:

Khalil Herbert, Chicago Bears

Although the Bears fell short against the Broncos, Herbert posted his best game so far this season. Herbert ran for 103 yards on 18 carries and caught four receptions for 19 yards and a touchdown – his first of the season.

OFFENSIVE LINEMEN:

Christian Darrisaw, Minnesota Vikings

In what was his best game so far this season, CD was graded an 88.3 total in blocking. On 23 snaps for running plays, Darrisaw posted an 88.8.

Brock Hoffman, Dallas Cowboys

Hoffman only played eight snaps for Dallas in the waning minutes of the Cowboys’ win.

Wyatt Teller, Cleveland Browns

While Teller shined in the pass-block – his grade was 82.8 – Teller had his second-worst run-blocking performance of the year with a 55.7.

FRONT SEVEN (D-Line and Linebackers)

Tim Settle, Buffalo Bills

In 20 snaps, Settle had one tackle in Buffalo’s blowout win against the Dolphins. His grade was 63.4, which is the best he’s played all season.

Tremaine Edmunds, Chicago Bears

Edmunds has struggled over the last two games, as he performed the second-worst in total defense per PFF. He had five tackles and assisted on two, and when targeted three times, gave up 37 yards on coverage.

Divine Deablo, Las Vegas Raiders

Deablo did not have his best performance against the Chargers, as he missed three tackles, including this goofy play:

DEFENSIVE BACKS AND SECONDARY

Terrell Edmunds, Philadelphia Eagles

Edmunds played the most snaps (78) so far this season, but what he’ll be remembered for most was this dropped INT:

Kendall Fuller, Washington Commanders

While Fuller’s 67 grade may not be pretty, Fuller was targeted twice and only allowed 15 yards on two receptions.

SPECIAL TEAMS

Joey Slye, Washington Commanders

Slye knocked down all four extra points and one field goal from 27 yards out.
