Predicted offensive EPA per game: plus-15.6
Returning starters: 11 (including QB)
2015 offensive efficiency rank: 22nd
Florida State returns all 11 offensive starters to a unit that has ranked in the top 25 in efficiency each of the last four years. Dalvin Cook is the most explosive running back in the nation; he led the FBS with 22 rushes of 20-plus yards in 2015. The receiving corps is deep, with second-team All-ACC selections Travis Rudolph and Kermit Whitfield returning. Adding to their depth, the Seminoles have signed a top-three recruiting class in each of the last three seasons. The only outstanding question is whether QB Sean Maguire, who sat out the spring recovering from a broken ankle, can hold off redshirt freshman Deondre Francois for the starting spot and perform at a level needed for the Seminoles to return to the College Football Playoff.
