Menelik Watson: 5 Things You Need to Know About the Florida State OT
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The focus of this piece is to give you some background and interesting information on former Florida State offensive tackle Menelik Watson.

The Seminoles had a great 2012 season, winning the ACC's Atlantic Division and compiling a 10-2 regular-season record. They also beat Georgia Tech in the ACC title game, 21-15, earning a spot in the January 1 Orange Bowl against MAC champion Northern Illinois.

They were able to walk away champions of a BCS bowl game following the 2012 season due in large part to its stifling No. 6-ranked defense. However, the offense was every bit as good, finishing No. 10 in the nation in points scored.

They did it both with the passing and running game, and the offensive line held up well all season. The unit was led by its starting right tackle, and this is his story.
