West Virginia's Offensive Linemen Work Through Drills With Coach Wickline and Crook. The Linebackers Go Over Footwork With Tony Gibson.

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Check out the videos of player drills from West Virginia spring practice No. 9 at the Caperton Indoor Practice Facility.

Finding suitable replacements for graduating seniors is one of the main objectives of spring football, and for West Virginia, it could be a tall task at the linebacker spot. With Jared Barber, Nick Kwiatkoski and Shaq Petteway on the way out, defensive coordinator Tony Gibson is looking for people to step up and earn their way up the depth chart. In the video above, watch the linebackers go through footwork drills under Gibson's watchful eye.

One position group that doesn't have too much work to do in terms of replacing depth is the offensive line. The Mountaineers are anchored by redshirt senior center Tyler Orlosky, and have plenty of experience along the line heading into this year. In the video above, watch offensive line coach Ron Crook lead the big men through a round of drills.

Perhaps the only thing that's new about WVU's offensive line this year is one of the voices leading it. Joe Wickline, who was hired as WVU's new offensive coordinator this off-season, will work with the offensive line in addition to Ron Crook this year. In the video above, watch Wickline lead the o-line through a series of drills, providing instruction along the way.
