FSU football has a week in the books with the 2021 fall camp. I take a look at three observations from what has taken place.

We’re less than three weeks away from FSU football opening their 2021 season against Notre Dame. It’s been a long but fruitful offseason for Mike Norvell and the coaching staff.

I wrote about the five biggest concerns going into 2021 Sunday, and we won’t have answers until we see the players perform in real games.

However, there appear to be some answers revealing themselves as we progress towards the opening game.

One thing not talked about enough is the amount of progress made in practice. The amount of reps the players receive is considerably different from the previous coaching staff.

There isn’t a lot of wasted practice time, and the split practices allow the younger players to get reps they wouldn’t get if the practices were not separate.

The challenge for the coaches is continuing to evaluate the players to figure out which role fits them best. There’s still a lot of switching going on with players taking reps at different positions.

The crosstraining is valuable, but it’s more about putting the best 11 players on the field in the right positions.
