The FSU football program had a great spring. The team welcomed 10+ newcomers from the transfer portal and high school ranks and experienced the "Tour of Duty" to prepare everyone for spring camp. FSU lost 13 players to the NFL, but the amount of talent acquired in the spring will help offset those losses. Plus, there's a lot of NFL talent remaining on the FSU roster. I already pointed out 15+ guys who could be selected in the 2025 NFL Draft last week. FSU coaches used the spring to learn the strengths and weaknesses of the newcomers while assimilating those players into the team format.

The coaches provide detailed instructions on specific things they want each player to work on during the summer months. This time will be spent largely with the strength and conditioning staff, and they'll do player-led workouts, and some players will do extra work with other coaches separately. However, new rules have allowed more interaction between the players and the coaching staff during the summer months in recent years. It'll be a time to fine-tune some things between different groups. Here are three things that need addressing over the summer months.
