There is a question about the FSU offensive line and how healthy they are going into the contest. Their play will contribute to the success or lack thereof for Rodemaker.
However, the good news is the FSU offensive line is better at pass protection than opening holes in the running game or in short yardage situations.
We’ll talk more about the Florida defense later, but I suspect they’ll play well enough for Rodemaker to take advantage of the playmakers he has at his disposal. We saw Rodemaker lead the Noles in a comeback win over the Louisville Cardinals last year.
Trey Benson and Johnny Wilson were on that team, but FSU has added more dynamic playmakers. Keon Coleman, Jaheim Bell(Rodemaker’s former high school teammate), Kyle Morlock, Ja’Khi Douglas, Kentron Poitier, Lawrance Toafili, and others will be at his disposal.
Rodemaker isn’t Jordan Travis with his legs, but he can move when he decides to take off in the open field.
FSU has been one of the most explosive offenses nationally, largely without much use of Jordan Travis running the ball.
That tells me Rodemaker can keep this offense humming if he has time and makes good decisions.
