Auden Tate embracing his role as leader of FSU’s wide receivers

New, 5 comments

The junior wideout is in his first full year as a starter, but feels prepared to lead the inexperienced group.

Auden Tate impressed in his first year as a major contributor in the Florida State receiving corps.

As a sophomore, Tate racked up 409 receiving yards on 25 catches with six touchdowns, emerging as the red-zone threat the Seminoles desperately needed.

This offseason, Tate still felt he had plenty of room for growth in his game.

“Blocking, bending, getting leaner, just understanding coverages,” Tate said when prompted on what he focused on this offseason.

However, Tate has also grown into his role as one of the veterans of the position group, working closely with newcomers D.J. Matthews and Tamorrion Terry.

“I’ve seen them adapt very well. They came in ready to learn, understanding that they have an opportunity to play this year,” Tate said of the freshmen. “I think they’re taking it very well.”

He has a lot of faith in the versatility of this year’s wide receiver group.

“We have a lot of guys who do a lot of different things,” Tate said. “I think we compliment each other very well.”
