As we hit the end of this season, I thought it might be cool to discuss what you think your team will look like heading into next year. For FSU, we are losing 3 of our top 4 playmakers on offense (QB EJ Manuel, HB Chris Thompson and WR Rodney Smith) as well as our top offensive lineman (RG Rhonne Sanderson). On defense, we are losing 3 out of 4 guys in the secondary (CB Greg Reid, FS Nick Moody and SS Jajuan Harley) and 2 out of 4 guys on the DL (DE Toshmon Stevens, DT Jacobbi McDaniel). The good news is that even though we had 16 seniors this year, many of them were not starting. Barring a max exodus of juniors, this team should have enough talent to compete for the ACC crown next year as well. On offense, the team will be likely turning to more of a spread option/passing attack, with incoming freshman QB Brenton Newby expected to get the starting job. He will be aided by returning HB Robert Bean and WR's Greg Dent, Christian Green and Kenny Shaw. The offensive line should be better next year as well, since 4 of 5 starters return. The defense was really young this year and it definitely showed at times, but they had their 3 best games in the last 2 regular season games and the ACC championship win vs UNC. The stars will be returning sack leader, true freshman DE Jeremy Miller (currently 3rd in the nation with 10 sacks), and the LB corp lead by redshirt freshman MLB Chris Wright. The secondary will see a lot of new faces, as there are several incoming CB recruits who are expected to immediately compete for playing time. Expectation - I think we will go undefeated in the ACC regular season, and get to the ACC title game, but the overall talent probably isn't in place for a national title run.
