This years Florida State team is loaded with talent. Everett Golson has transferred over form Notre Dame and will take over as the starting quarterback. Running back Dalvin Cook has been cleared of all his off the field issues and should have another break out year. They took a big hit on their offensive line losing 4 starters but they have some talented players to fill in for them. Wide Receivers Travis Rudolph and Ermon Lane had great first years and will be reliable options for Golson. FSU’s defense is loaded with talented players. Jalen Ramsey earned All-Americans last season will be the leader of this defense in likely his last season with the Noles. Their pass rush will need improvement with the loss of Eddie Goldman and Mario Edwards, but Jimbo Fisher has a lot of depth on defense.
