Prediction - Will battle with Clemson for the 2018 ACC-Atlantic title
Following last year's 7-6 record (3-5 conference), FSU seems like a far-reaching candidate for the CFP. However, according to ESPN's Phil Steele, the Seminoles are likely to make a surprise playoff run. While many would call the loss of Jimbo Fisher to Texas A&M a major setback for the Seminoles, FSU's AD Stan Wilcox is incredibly optimistic about incoming head coach Willie Taggart. In fact, Taggart was ranked in the Top 40 Head Coaches at the FBS level by Athlon Sports, even going so far to say that, “he should have no trouble elevating Florida State back into contention for the ACC title in the near future.” What's more, they've had some of the best recruiting classes seen in the past 4 years.
DB Jaiden Woodbey - (Fr.)
WR Nyqwan Murray - (Sr.)
LB Leonard Warner III - (So.)
QB Deondre Francois - (Jr.)
QB James Blackman - (So.)
RB Cam Akers - (So.)
With a healthy Deondre Francois, in addition to second-year players, James Blackman and Cam Akers, FSU has one of the best young backfields in the NCAA. With such a powerful offense, and a defense rebuilding itself on speed and athleticism, not to mention an outstanding recruiting class, the Seminoles are setting themselves up to be highly successful in the coming seasons--if not this coming Fall.
