FSU practice report: The first day of fall camp

New, 59 comments

The ’Noles hit the practice fields for the first time this fall.

It was a warm 90+ degree day in Tallahassee as Florida State took to the practice fields for the beginning of fall camp.

Injured/Absent

Freshman OL Brady Scott will miss the entire fall camp with a broken foot he suffered in an accident. Besides that, everyone was in attendance and working out.

Offense

As Fisher pointed out in his presser just before practice, Rick Leonard has shifted from right tackle, where he played last season, to left tackle. Redshirt junior Brock Ruble is now at right tackle. The entire first-team offensive line from left to right looked like this: Rick Leonard, Landon Dickerson, Alec Eberle, Cole Minshew, Derrick Kelly. Second-team from L to R looked like: Josh Ball David Robbins, Baveon Johnson, Ethan Frith and Brock Ruble.

At running backs, freshman Cam Akers went through drills very fluidly as seen below:

Freshman tight end Tre‘ McKitty also showed off his hands in Tuesday’s practice:

Defense:

There were no real surprises on defense. LB Delvin Purifoy was practicing with the defensive ends.

Special Teams:

Today it seemed as the team was practicing punt returns moreso than kick returns. Among those returning kicks were wide receiver Nyqwan Murray, defensive backs Levonta Taylor and Derwin James with wideouts Keith Gavin and DJ Matthews.

Scouts:

Scouts from the New York Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers were in attendance.

Interviews:
