Special Teams

Special teams are intact, aside from no Keon Coleman at punt returner. We've seen Ja'Khi Douglas in that role before, and he'll catch the ball, but isn't much of a threat to do anything afterwards. That's fine in a game like this, but I wouldn't mind seeing if Vandrevius Jacobs could offer more of a threat to do damage in the return game. Deuce Spann and Hykeem Williams at kickoff return? That's a lot of size and speed, with the potential to break off a long run if the opportunity presents itself. We know Spann can break one, and Williams has excellent speed for his size.

Final Thoughts

I expect a heavy dose of the running game from Mike Norvell in this one. Georgia's offense isn't mind-blowing, and we've seen them struggle at times this year. The question for FSU is can they generate anything offensively with this group? It wasn't pretty against a legitimate Louisville defense in the ACC Championship game, but they found a way. One thing we've learned this year is to not put a ton of stock in the depth chart. It wouldn't surprise me if the players on the field look different than what's listed here.
