NCAA Football: Orange Bowl-Michigan vs Florida State Logan Bowles-USA TODAY Sports


There was plenty of Clemson talk above, but Florida State’s front is more of a team game than it is about individual standouts -- neither’s all that problematic when you have four- and five-star talent, though. FSU brings back Burns, Josh Sweat, Derrick Nnandi and DeMarcus Christmas across the line. All have breakout potential, but circle Burns and Sweat especially, at the end positions.



  • Could former walk-on DB Javien Elliott be a starter in 2017 for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers?
  • Defensive back Marquez White played for the Cowboys in their preseason opener vs. the Cards in the Hall of Fame Game. He made 1 tackle.
