Offense Mixture Young Talent/Older Vets

Most of the questions reside on the offensive side. FSU will have a freshman seeing significant snaps at quarterback, running back, and wide receiver. FSU has two wide receivers at running back, though both have taken reps at the position before, with Douglas getting a few unproductive carries in years past. Lawrance Toafili will return next year, but is likely having some work done to prepare for spring ball. Kyle Morlock, Jackson West, and Preston Daniels have experience at tight end, and the offensive line has some familiar faces. West saw more time later in the season after not seeing the field much in his first year or two.

Though, I wonder how many of these offensive linemen will play. Maurice Smith has been banged up all year, and I'd be surprised if he played much. However, maybe the last few weeks of not having games helped him. Darius Washington listed four different offensive lineman spots, shows his versatility and the lack of depth. Will young guys like Julian Armella or Jaylen Early get into the game? I'm excited to see Destyn Hill and Hykeem Williams at receiver. I wonder if any of these other receivers will try to use the bowl game as an audition before hitting the portal?
