It’s finally here.
Florida State Seminoles football opens fall camp this weekend for the 2021 season. And you know what camp means — the unbearable heat, the frantic shouting of calls and checks and irate coaches, the excitement the day the pads first come on, the cracks and thuds of hitting, and of course, fierce position battles. This is where the foundation of the 2021 team will be laid. Due to the difficulties and limits imposed by the Covid-19 pandemic, this is also the first real spring and fall for this team under head coach Mike Norvell.
Over the last few weeks, we’ve systematically previewed not only FSU’s schedule but also the team’s position groups. Over the past 21 months, Norvell and his staff have spent a lot of time and effort remaking this roster and that means this version of the ’Noles will look a lot different than last year’s.
We’ve decided to project a complete depth chart for the start of camp, and we’ll do another one at the end of camp. Please keep in mind we are likely wrong, and things are going to change. Defense, in particular, was a challenge; with the huge influx of talent, we imagine the staff is basically starting over this year.
We also didn’t include many freshmen because they’re simply too much of an unknown at this point, but there are some we think could contribute early. Let us know in the comments where you agree and/or disagree, where you think the position battles will take place, and who you think will win.
Remember — these are just projections.
