ESPN's David M. Hale passes along that according to Virginia coaches, redshirt senior QB Kurt Benkert has made "huge strides" this offseason.
Hale forwards the opinion that Benkert could potentially pass for 3,500 yards during the coming season. "He won't be pushed by Matt Johns this time around," Hale writes, "and he's arguably the only experienced weapon the Hoos' offense currently has." He also thinks the fact that Virginia is likely to be playing from behind in most of their games should help Benkert to pad out his statistics. This past season, the redshirt senior passed for 2,552 yards (56.2% completions) with a 21/11 TD/INT ratio. Earlier this offseason, the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder said that he "know[s] the offense like the back of [his] hand." Beyond his increased comfort in the system, Benkert should be helped greatly by the fact that he has fully recovered from knee and ankle injuries which hampered him at times in 2016. Jun 9 - 7:21 PM
