Fromer Virginia Tech Hokies and brother, Terrell and Tremaine Edmunds, have officially declared for the NFL Draft on Wednesday. Cornerback Adonis Alexander has still not announced his plans for next season, though rising senior defensive tackle Ricky Walker will be back.

The announcement by the former Dan River High School standouts opens more voids in a defense that has already lost defensive lineman Tim Settle, who announced he was headed to the draft last week, as well as departing seniors Andrew Motuapuaka, Greg Stroman and Brandon Facyson.Tremaine departs after a junior season in which he received All-American accolades and was a finalist for the Butkus Award, which is given to the best linebacker in the country.

The Virginia Tech defense will have to replace a pair of brothers next season. ESPN draft analyst Mel Kiper Jr. lists him as the No. 14 player on his big board, writing that he "has the most upside of any linebacker in this class". He has until Monday to declare his intentions.

The 6-foot-5, 250-pound Tremaine Edwards, who amassed 32.5 tackles for loss over the last two years, is projected as a first-round pick according to the Yahoo story. He led the Hokies in 2017 with 109 tackles, 14 tackles for a loss, and five and a half sacks.

The draft outlook is less clear for the 6-2, 220-pound Terrell Edmunds. He earned third-team All-America honors from the Associated Press and was a first-team All-ACC pick. He still finished fifth on the team with 59 tackles and was third on the team with six passes defended, including two interceptions.

Terrell Edmunds started 10 games at free safety before suffering a season-ending shoulder injury November 11 at Georgia Tech.

Terrell, a redshirt junior, started 31 games in his career. Fuller's season-ending knee injury early in the season paved the way for Terrell Edmunds to take over the starting role. He moved to free safety before the start of this season.

The Danville duo are the younger brothers of New Orleans Saints running back Trey Edmunds, who spent four years with the Hokies before transferring to play his final season at Maryland.
