Which Receivers Emerge to Replace Wilson and Coleman?

Along with linebacker, the wide receiver position might be the spot I'm most curious about heading into spring camp. FSU has some known veteran names like Kentron Poitier, Darion Williamson, Deuce Spann, and Ja'Khi Douglas. There's the ultra-talented Hykeem Williams, Vandrevius Jacobs, and Destyn Hill, and then there's LSU transfer Jalen Brown and the former No. 1 JUCO WR, Alabama transfer Malik Benson. FSU also had freshmen receivers Lawayne McCoy, BJ Gibson, and Camden Frier to enroll this spring. The passing offense felt forced at times last year, with Keon Coleman, Johnny Wilson, and tight end Jaheim Bell getting the bulk of the targets. Many of the guys on the team this spring have outstanding speed, which is something they lacked last year.

Poitier looked poised to become a major contributor last season before an injury derailed him. Injuries have hampered Williams his entire career, and Douglas missed half of the season with an injury. However, he became a nice contributor once healthy. Williams and Hill got derailed by injury, and Jalen Brown didn't play a snap at LSU while redshirting. Malik Benson didn't have a legit QB at Alabama last year. Can guys stay healthy? Can guys maximize their potential when they get the opportunities? Which guy will seize the moment?
