RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — It was twice the fun for Virginia Tech football fans late in the first round of the NFL Draft.

Cornerback Caleb Farley was selected 22nd overall by the Tennessee Titans, then offensive lineman Christian Darrisaw went off the board at No. 23, selected by the Minnesota Vikings.

Farley opted out of the 2020 season due to COVID-19 concerns, while Darrisaw spent a year near Richmond at Fork Union before joining the Hokies.
