The Florida State Seminoles’ run to the 2013 national championship was notable for, well, what Florida State Seminoles football is notable for: skill players. Led by Jameis Winston, Florida State added to the tradition created by players such as Deion Sanders, Warrick Dunn, Charlie Ward, and Peter Warrick with players such as Kelvin Benjamin, Terrence Brooks, and Devonta Freeman, all of whom went in the 2014 NFL Draft. But if FSU is to repeat, it won’t just be at the skill positions; it will be in the trenches with four of five starters returning on the offensive line and three starters returning on the defensive line. Add that to the return of enough skill players and the ability for Jimbo Fisher to simply reload thanks to successful recruiting, and this team could be loaded to make another national title run.
